Charlie Manuel has returned to the Philadelphia Phillies as a senior advisor to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday.
Manuel led the Phillies to the 2008 World Series title, five division championships and two NL pennants from 2005-13. His 780 victories are more...

As much as I feel Ruben Amaro needs to be fired, I never got the impression that his job was in any real jeopardy. I’m starting to question that now.
It is quite possible that firing Charlie Manuel cost Ruben Amaro his job. David Montgomery is extremely loyal and reluctant to fire “family members,” which made Amaro's decision to fire mid-season the winningest manager...
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Friday’s party with Charlie Manuel has been cancelled.
With an influx of new found time on his hands and life-altering decisions still to be made, we certainly have to forgive Charlie for the misunderstanding. We’re very sorry for getting everyone’s hopes up.
Charlie does feels awful for having to cancel, and was very moved that...
Charlie will be there!
Ladies and gentlemen, due to the outpouring of support for Charlie Manuel, we’ve decided to host a party in his honor. And best of all, Charlie has graciously agreed to attend.
The party is free to attend and will be held this Friday, August 23 starting at 5pm at The Field House at 1150 Filbert Street (next to Reading Terminal).
There will be food and...
The Philadelphia Phillies severed ties with their skipper Charlie Manuel on Friday. In doing so, they broke hearts all over the city.
In some eyes, Manuel had it coming after the Phillies came out of the break a disastrous 5-20.
In others, he deserved a chance to at least finish this year strong and be evaluated for a contract extension at the end of the season.
Those that argue...
The reports coming out of Philly is that the Philadelphia Phillies scheduled a 2:30 p.m. news conference Friday where it will be expected to be announced that the team and longtime manager Charlie Manuel will be going their separate ways. Manuel has been the Phillies skipper since 2005, compiling a 780-636 record, during which time […]The post Phillies were to honor Charlie Manuel...
The Phillies called a surprise press conference for today at 2:30 PM, and were very tight-lipped about the details. Jim Salisbury then broke the news via his source that Charlie Manuel will no longer be manager of the Phillies. Matt Gelb reported something similar as well.
The press conference will be shown on CSN at 2:30 PM.
DOWN TO THE TEETH
During Monday’s Phillies-Braves game cameras panned to the Philadelphia dugout, and in a moment of perfect timing, caught sight of 69-year-old Phils manager Charlie Manuel messing around with his dentures… I thought denture wearers were supposed to use adhesive products like Super Poligrip® or Fixodent to keep their false teeth in place? Maybe dentures are like protective...
This just in: Philadelphia Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel has dentures. Of course, the fact that a 69-year-old man would require the aforementioned dental apparatus hardly is surprising. What is off-putting, though, is how Manuel elected to play around with them while leaning against the railing of the dugout during Philly’s game against the Atlanta Braves […]The post Watching...
