Cholly’s Unique Way Of Thinking Highly Of Someone
Posted by TonyIsDynamic at 10:37 am ET 14 Comments

Charlie Manuel is a manager known to push unique buttons in games, even if it results in head scratching sometimes. But let it be known, Cholly will do anything to win a game. Anything.

As ZWR eloquently writes after every one of his starts, Roy Halladay pitched yesterday. He notched his 5th complete game of the season, yet recorded a rather low (by his standards…) 4 strikeouts.¬†Charlie was asked in his postgame press conference by CSN’s Jim Salisbury if he ¬†would sacrifice Roy Halladay’s amount of strikeouts so he could throw less pitches and go the distance more. What resulted was Manuel saying he would sacrifice anything to win ballgames. Including a living, breathing human being. “I’d even sacrifice you… Charlie matter of factly states to Jim. The reasoning for Charlie’s sacrifice of Barney Rubble? He thinks very highly of him.

So before you hop on Twitter to complain about Charlie’s misuse of the bullpen, or if he keeps a starter in longer than he should be, remember this: Charlie Manuel is NOT afraid to push a man into a volcano if it means his team wins ballgames. And that’s a compliment. We think.

    @Devil’s Advocate….yeah that was a real thing of beauty from Ben on Friday. Dude looked like someone who just completed dizzy bat spins after pounding a 40 oz. of hurricane. Ugliest 2-0 swing for a walk-off hit I’ve seen in some time.
