Charlie Manuel is 68 years old. He does not know what Twitter is, let alone how to operate a Twitter account. Several of his Phillies players do, however, so the MLB Fan Cave thought it would be fun for the Philadelphia manager to try reading a couple of them. With some help from outfielder Shane Victorino, Manuel did his best, but still struggled with the idea of hashtags or what the "@" in front of people's names meant. Check out the awesome video of Manuel reading tweets in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes.

Week In Review – Halladay, Utley, Hamels

We find ourselves at the end of another mediocre week from the Phillies.  The Phillies took two of three from the Mets before giving up two of three to the Marlins.  Lucky for us, mediocre baseball seems the slogan of the National League East so the Phillies are still not that far off.————————–The Good, the bad, the ugly (Wild Thing)Chase Utley is on the move...

Charlie Manuel Doesn’t Understand Twitter, Gets Easily Confused

Every day Charlie Manuel winds down with an ice cold PBR, a nice chew and his dog. He sits on his porch and curses every child at play, woman running on the side walk or couple walking their dog. It’s hard to have time for Twitter when your life is a mirror image of Clint Eastwood’s character in Gran Torino, so it comes as no surprise that Manuel struggles through half of the...

Injury to cost pitcher Roy Halladay his 2014 vesting option?

Other than three grounds-crew members, Roy Halladay was the lone soul on the field early Sunday morning at Citizens Bank Park. He ran sprints on the warning track, which probably offered little solace for the weeks of rest ahead. If Halladay’s bad shoulder forces an absence of eight weeks, as suggested, it could make him a free agent one season sooner than expected. Halladay signed...

Jonathan Papelbon says umpire ‘sucked,’ should be sent down to Triple-A (Video)

Jonathan Papelbon may have taken the loss as the Phillies were defeated 4-3 by the Dodgers on Monday night, but he is not taking the blame. That blame, he says, belongs to home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. In a 3-3 tie in the ninth, Papelbon allowed a lead-off triple on a 2-2 pitch to Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon. Papelbon thought he had strike three on the previous pitch, and naturally...

Philadelphia Phillies: 2012 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 56

Vance Worley fills out the bottom of the rotation, making starts like yesterday’s for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Umpires Become the Story Once Again in Phillies Loss

It is a real shame when the focus of any baseball game becomes the umpires instead of the actual plays. But this seems to be an ever increasing trend as MLB continues to sweep bad umpiring under the rug. After a 4-3 loss to the Dodgers last night, Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon got all bent out of shape about the performance of home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. Papelbon told reporters...

Why Carlos Ruiz will not make the All-Star team

Is it too late to make an all star push for Carlos Ruiz? Getty Images. Carlos Ruiz leads all catchers in baseball with a .368 batting average, a .600 slugging percentage, 1.029 OPS. He also is tied for the National League lead with 32 RBI and has played some very solid defense this season. As Todd Zolecki points out, Ruiz is just short of enough plate appearances to...

With Their Second Pick, Phillies take RHP Mitch Gueller

Courtesy The Chronicle of Lewis County, Washington More pitching, though this one appears to have some bat too.  The Phillies have used their second pick, number 54 overall to select RHP Mitch Gueller.  This pick was the one the Phillies received for letting Raul Ibanez go to the Yankees.  He is the gift of Ibanez not accepting the Phillies' arbitration offer. Gueller hails...

Anemic Phils get some good news on Utley

The Phillies offense was at its worst on Sunday against Carlos Zambrano and the Miami Marlins. They played their 55th straight game without both Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. Manager Charlie Manuel slotted journeyman Hector Luna into the cleanup spot of his batting order. The team's lone extra base hit was a bunt double by Juan Pierre. It wasn't a surprise, then, that...

Red Sox Select Left-Handed Pitcher Brian Johnson With Compensation Pick from Jonathan Papelbon's Departure (Video)

When Jonathan Papelbon bolted for Philadelphia, the Red Sox received the 31st overall pick in the first round of 2012 MLB Draft as compensation. With that pick –– their second of the night –– the team selected left-handed pitcher Brian Johnson out of the University of Florida, where he dabbled between playing pitching and playing first base for the Gators. Scouts say Johnson...
