Phils skip Charlie Manuel was so impressed by the performance of Cole Hamels last night (8.0 IP, 0 ER, 9 K, 0 BB, Game time temp 95°), that he praised Cole’s work ethic and maturity during the post-game presser before ending with this gem:

“He’s getting stronger. He’s bigger than he used to be. If you see him with his shirt and stuff off, he’s developing into a man.”

Realizing he said something that could possibly be blockquoted and misconstrued on a blog, Charlie laughed it off. I guess what he was trying to say, though, is Cole’s all growsed up.

And if you think he’s developed into a man with his shirt off, you should check out his bare ass!

Charlie Manuel sure has a way with words, don’t he? And is it wrong that I assumed he meant he and his girlfriend like to trade partners with their married friends every once in a while?

Get ready to like Charlie Manuel even more: Dom Brown is getting the start against a LHP tonight!

Baseball lost one of it’s all-time greats on Monday as Twins’ Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew died following a bout with esophageal cancer. Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel, who played with Killebrew in Minnesota from 1969-1971, reflected on the one they called “Killer” yesterday with Chris Wheeler on yesterday’s pregame show:

Over the last week, we’d count down the number. Eight. A win or two from the Phils, plus a loss or two from the Braves, and it got trimmed down. Four. Another win. Three. Then two.

Eventually, the Magic Number was down to one.

They returned to where it all started: Washington, D.C.

They sent their Ace to the hill to finish the job: Roy Halladay.

The goal was the same as it was on day one: Win the division, play in October.

If you didn’t think the players and coaches care about All Star Game, then you’d be mistaken, friend. Just look at that grin! Like he just discovered oil. Or cotton candy.

What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork… Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don’t field… what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I’m goin’ out there for myself. But… I get nowhere unless the team wins.

Please fast-forward to :33 seconds in.

Why hasn’t anyone made a #4 Kintetsu Buffaloes throwback jersey yet? I would honestly pay a couple grand for one. It would probably be the most popular jersey in the history of jerseys.
