I see you back there, Charlie. Don’t try to hide it.

He isn’t a Phillies minor league manager, but he is a former Phillie. Remember everyone’s favorite fu manchu? I certainly do. Sal Fasano is currently the manager of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the AA affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Now obviously I don’t need to tell you this but he is giving Sal’s Pals a little loving pre-game while talking to the Yankees’ special assistant to the GM Stump Merrill (LOLName).

Many thanks go out to Jay Floyd of Phoul Ballz who has become my go to guy for getting pics of managers with their hands down their pants. Please check out his interview with Sal Fasano where Sal talks about his time in Philadelphia, his transition to managing, and his players he is managing.

You may have heard that the Phillies have a ridiculous amount of talent in the lower levels of the minor leagues, because they do, but who knew this went for managerial talent as well? Here is Lakewood BlueClaws manager and former big leaguer Chris Truby overseeing his teams pre-game workouts with his hands firmly planted in his pants. And, as you also may have heard, a certain Philadelphia Phillies manager happens to indulge in the same practice.

So to say the future for the Phillies is bright is quite the understatement.

Thanks to Jay from Phoul Ballz for sending me this pic. One of the best Phillies minor league blogs out there, check it out.

After the jump is a bonus crotch grab by Phillies’ OF prospect Domingo Santana.

Not to be outdone by Joe Blanton, Roy Oswalt shows off his best Charlie Manuel impression during a workout session. What can you say? Dude’s a quick study.

Big thanks to reader @MandaBrill for the tip via Twitter. Props also go out to Jay Ballz who beat me to the punch with this picture (and the exact same friggin’ joke) a whopping seventeen hours ago.

If I wasn’t so entertained by Charlie’s hands down his pants adventures, I’d recommend he get one of those hand warming pouches sewn in his jersey like the NFL quarterbacks used to do.

And for the record:

Jim Tracy = tattletale cry baby
Charlie Manuel = MLB’s version of Al Bundy

Who would you rather have coaching your squad?

I’ll give you a hint — it was one of the managers in last night’s 4-0 Phillies victory over the Cardinals and it was not the guy who got a DUI after falling asleep in his truck because he drank three beers nor was it the guy who continues to bat his pitchers eighth even though it’s a stupid idea.

You guessed it, Charlie Manuel!

Charlie Manuel managed a portion of the ballgame with his hands rested comfortably in crotch area:

I happened to notice an AP photo of Charlie Manuel with his hands down his pants back on March 4th when the Phillies played the Yankees at Bright House Field, but because I posted similar photos a day earlier, I didn’t want to over do it and have readers think that all I do is scour the ‘net for photos of Charlie Manuel with his hands down his pants (which is pretty much all I do). Then yesterday, when a reader sent me the link again, I noticed an even funnier, corresponding picture that was taken shortly after Manuel was caught digging in his pants. So now I have no choice, I have to post it.

Here is the pre-game workout shot:

And this one was taken prior to the lineups being introduced:

AHAHAHHAHAHHAA JOE GIRARDI JUST GOT A PALMFUL OF CHARLIE MANUEL’S BALL SWEAT

You suck, Yankees!

The Phillies beat the Florida St. Seminoles in some pre-pre-season action tonight 13-6, but more importantly, Charlie Manuel was captured on film in the dugout with his hands down his pants. While blowing a bubble.

UPDATED: Our manager was caught with his hands down his pants not once, but TWICE!

Roy’s tossing the pill as Charlie looks on with his hands down his pants. What is this, mid-July?

…meanwhile, back here in Philly, some of this year’s promotions were on display for those brave souls who waited in line for the single game tickets that officially went on sale today. The highlight, of course:

The resemblance is uncanny.

May 18th, baby! Just got my tickets!
