The decision to fire Charlie Manuel came at the wrong part of the season. Ruben (Amaro Jr.) should have let Charlie finish out the year.

Changes should have been within the front office because they are the ones offering the contracts to the free agents.

Charlie is the one putting the best team on the field with what he has available to him.

I hope Charlie comes back next year to help within the Phillies organization (whether it's part of the coaching staff, player development, or farm director).

I agree with the reader from Ventnor who expressed his opinion that Manuel lost control of the team. Roy Halladay seems to concur.

Manuel can not effectively manage a team forced to play "small ball" to score runs. How many attempted bunt base hits have we've seen over the past nine years?

The Phillies fired the wrong man. Ruben Amaro is the one who should have been fired.

If the Phillies (Amaro) didn't fire Davey Lopes, two men wouldn't have been picked off first and one off second in one week.

In the last three years, the third-base coach has not been aggressive enough, not sending runners home or not holding others up.
