PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Getting fired was the best thing to ever happen to Charlie Manuel in Philadelphia. Imagine he plays out the season, and the Phillies continue to play as poorly as they had. Charlie leaves, everyone is miserable, the season sort of fades away into nothingness. Instead, Charlie became the poster child for the mistakes Ruben Amaro has made over the last several years.
Still, it couldn’t touch the story Hollis Thomas broke this week.
So Halladay pretty clearly and plainly says that he doesn’t think that Charlie Manuel was able to keep his players under control and working as hard as they had in previous years. He says he believes that Ryne Sandberg will change those things.
Halladay then takes offense at the fact that a headline said that he endorsed the firing of Manuel.
