I think this is a move totally designed to appease the mob, but I'm all for it. Charlie won't be silent as Gabe is making blatantly stupid decisions, and he might actually teach our guys how to create runs.
I heard a long time ago Gabe tweeted that Charlie should be fired when he was here. How sweet would that be if the reverse happened? Klentak is a snake and would def cut Gabe loose if it saved his own skin.
First game here for Manuel, we're aggressive as hell, and drop 11 runs on the Cubs. I only hope he doesn't end up saving Gabe's job!
Hamels got rocked, but I'm glad he made it to his at-bat and got his standing ovation. Hard to believe he hasn't played here since being a Phillie. He didn't wave or smile as he was getting his ass kicked, but he acknowledged the crowd.
