It's Been a Long, Cold Winter

But Joe Morgan is finally back in the saddle. Tonight, Braves/Phillies. Discussion re: Phils manager Charlie Manuel. Your thoughts about his ability to interact with his players, Joe?

Charlie Manuel doesn't manage X's and O's. He manages players.

Where the fuck are there X's and O's in baseball? Yeah, you know, when Joe Torre draws up a play in the huddle, he definitely uses them. Same with most managers. Not Charlie I guess. Good for him.

Special thanks to FireJay sometimes-reader Jon.

I second that sentiment Lawrence.

I guess that explains why the Mets keep choking in the latter stages of the season. Just when they need someone who knows baseball strategies, they're stuck with Dr. Phil.

Ohhh it feels like mid-season! Dusty Baker letting his starter get to 112 pitches in 5 innings!

If (when?) I'm managing a pro-baseball team, I'm going to call a huddle and say, "okay, Manny Ramirez, hit the ball as far as you can away from the other guys, and then (on my whiteboard) run from here to here to here to here, until your progress is impeded by the other guys....BREAK".
