Picture by Richard Wilkins Jr. I was happy to be there for Charlie Manuel's induction to the Phillies Wall-of-Fame on Saturday night. I generally hold Charlie in high regard for his tenure as manager. Obviously 2008 was awesome. But can we break that team up already?? Call me ungrateful if...

Cancelled: Charlie Manuel Party

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Friday’s party with Charlie Manuel has been cancelled. With an influx of new found time on his hands and life-altering decisions still to be made, we certainly have to forgive Charlie for the misunderstanding.

Charlie Manuel:”I never quit nothing and I didn’t resign”

The Philadelphia Phillies severed ties with their skipper Charlie Manuel on Friday. In doing so, they broke hearts all over the city. In some eyes, Manuel had it coming after the Phillies came out of the break a disastrous 5-20. In others, he deserved a chance to at least finish this year strong and be evaluated for a contract extension at the end of the season. Those that argue...

Charlie Manuel pops out his dentures

During Monday’s Phillies-Braves game cameras panned to the Philadelphia dugout, and in a moment of perfect timing, caught sight of 69-year-old Phils manager Charlie Manuel messing around with his dentures… I thought denture wearers were supposed to use adhesive products like Super Poligrip® or Fixodent to keep their false teeth in place?

Charlie Manuel is a Liar

When asked about whether to bat Jimmy Rollins leadoff or not, Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel replied with..."I don't think you guys ever see the value in Jimmy Rollins.
