Sad day, for me at least, as Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has been fired. He was certainly my favorite manager, and led the team to 5 NL East titles, 2 NL Pennants, and 1 World Series whilst becoming the Phillies winningest manager. Thanks, Charlie.
I feel like the organization should have let him finish out the season, or at the very least sent him off with a home game and a standing ovation. They did let him get his 1,000th win, though.
