Charlie Manuel brings us our quote of the day, when asked why the Phillies have been accused of stealing signs by the Rockies:
"Because we beat them. That's why. What the hell? Keep crying."
Love. This. Man.
He then went on to take a swipe at the Mets, who also complained about the Phillies stealing signs.
“Somebody maybe ought to check the Mets if they did that,” Manuel said.
“Their [bleeping] home record is out of this world and they’re losing on
the road. Sometimes that’s a good indicator of getting signs and
[crap]. I see somebody setting there at (14-7) at home and (4-8) on the
road, I’d get concerned about that. That kind of crosses my mind.
not accusing them, but you look at that and – damn. We’re about the
same home and road. I’m just saying their record is much better at home
and they hit better.”
Those may not even be Charlie's best quote. It also rivals that of Peter Laviolette.
Thanks to Matt Gelb (@magelb) and Jim Salisbury (@jsalisburycsn) for bringing this to our attention.
Charlie tells it like it is!!
