    I'm shocked! In other news, it was time for him to leave.

    I just heard a different report on the radio saying that Ryne Sandberg will be named manager.

    Charlie Manuel fired

    I was going to say that Williams hasn't been with the team since 08 or 09.

    I'm conflicted on this one. One half says let him finish the year. The team isn't going to make the playoffs regardless and you already have Sandberg on the team. The other half is saying that the Phillies aren't convinced that Sandberg is the guy and they want to use the rest of the year to see what he can do.

    I'm glad Ryno got the job, and hopefully the Phils will play decent enough ball that either they give him the gig full time or it sets him up for a job with a different team.

    They love the guy in 08 & 09, now its his fault most of the team can't stay healthy.....I guess the GM is trying to keep his job, firing one of the most successfully managers in the teams history is the last desperate act of someone with one foot out the door....I guess all those 20M+ contracts aren't hurting the team right....

    It can't be said any better than this.

    I would have to agree. The problem isn't that the team is poorly managed. The problem is that the team was poorly constructed. I would have liked to have seen someone that has contributed so much to that organization be allowed to finish out the season and leave under better terms.

    I agree with the move, but not the timing.

    IF you're not keeping Manuel past his contract ending, then either get rid of him a month ago or just let him stay on through the end of the season. Firing him now does no good. Not good for him and it leaves Sandberg in charge of a carcass of a team that could win 20 straight and still be 5+ games out of it.

    He's got a signing scheduled at my Buddy's store tomorrow, it'll be intersting to see if it still happens...
