Charlie Misses Brett
“He’ll probably bring his big old white dog in the clubhouse,” he said. “I miss Myers. Really. I miss getting on him. I miss his mouth. Really. Seriously, I do miss him. I think in our camp this year we’ve been a little bit quieter without Myers.”
So Roy Halladay is more reserved than Myers?
“I’d say Halladay is more about his business than Brett,” Manuel said. “I’ll be getting on him tomorrow. He’ll be making gestures back at me and everything. He can’t help himself. Go home and sleep good tonight because you’ll get something to write about.”
The Phillies parted ways with Myers in the offseason because they felt both parties needed a fresh start.
“I wish Myers all the luck in the world as long as the Phillies whip him,” Manuel said. “I pull for Brett, but not when he pitches against the Phillies.”
Major League Baseball eliminated the off day between Games 4 and 5 of the League Championship Series. There will be an extra day between the NLCS and World Series instead.
“Does it matter to me?” Manuel said. “It depends what kind of pitching we’ve got when we get there. It depends how we can swing our pitching. If we can still stay strong with our pitching, yeah. If not, god damn I don’t think so.”
