I tend to think Charlie Manuel's a little dim, but I agree with this:
Howard went 2-for-4 in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks. He had just one hit in his last 21 at-bats entering Saturday's game. "I think Howard's still going through some spring training," manager Charlie Manuel said. "I could give everybody rest. But you know what my manager used to tell me? 'How the hell are you going to hit if you're not in the game?'"
I prefer Charlie Manuel? Wow.
