Manuel Gets Extension

Tuesday, December 9, 2008 ·

Scott Lauber is reporting that Phillies manager, Charlie Manuel, has received an extension that will keep him as the manager through 2011. They picked up his option for 2010 and tacked on an extra year.

Good move by the Phillies. I know I've criticized some of his bonehead moves, but he still finds a way to win more games than he loses. He keeps the clubhouse calm and poised even when thing are bad. That is what a manager is supposed to do. Most of the wins and losses really come down to the personnel he has to work with and the players' performances.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
