Are the Phillies Ric Flair?

Charlie Manuel woke up this morning, turned on the TV and heard Pat Burrell talk about the Phillies.

“To be the best you’ve got to beat the best.”

Manuel liked that.

“That’s one of my slogans,” Manuel said this afternoon. “It’s Ric Flair. You’re going to Space Mountain. What the hell? You know what happens at Space Mountain? You’ve got to get there and you’ve got to conquer it. You’ve got to stay there. That’s kind of what we want to do.”

Does this make the Giants the Iron Sheik?

Update: I’m told Flair and Sheik were in two different wrestling leagues. So I guess that makes the Giants “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes?
