Charlie Manuel Said the Phillies Will Score 10 Runs When He Knocks Howard Eskin Out

So…. what are you waiting for, Chuck?

After yet another loss of the Cole Hamels variety, Charlie Manuel was, once again, forced to answer questions about his team’s struggles. He didn’t have many answers, but that didn’t stop Howard Eskin from pressing him extra hard on why the Phillies can’t hit, score runs or do anything that resembles the actions of a baseball lineup.

Manuel was irritated:

“I don’t know what I can do, Howard. If we don’t hit and score runs, I don’t know what we can do. I don’t know what nobody else can do about it and I know you can’t do a damn thing about it. So, what else do you want to know? Happy?”

[Charlie gets up]

When are you gonna score 10 runs, that’s what I want to know.

“When I knock you out.”

Manuel laughed after he delivered that last line… the type of laugh that a strung out druggie might produce before reaching for a kitchen knife to wield in a threatening manner. He and Eskin have apparently become friendly since the last time an ass-kicking was on the table, so this seemed to be more tongue-in-cheek than anything. But, it was still fun to hear Charlie’s country boy twang talk about breaking Eskin’s face.

Unfortunately, the important part here is that Manuel is out of answers. His dance with who brung ‘im strategy is no longer working. It hasn’t been for quite a while. So, unless Eskin gets his ass kicked, like, tomorrow (and once a week for the rest of the season), it’s probably time for Charlie to go.

    And if Uncle Charlie goes, the problem, namely the players will remain to be a underachieving pain in the ass for Ryne Sandberg or whoever’s unlucky enough to become the next manager. So what do we, as fans gain? Nothing.

  • Da Cuz June 22, 2013 at 10:48 am

    Damn..remember when Charlie lost all that wait on Nutri System?

  • Mr. Jones June 22, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Char is starting to become a fat fuck again. Circa 2007

    • Go Phils?? Nah they suck June 22, 2013 at 10:29 pm

      If charlie being a fat fuck brings back the level of success from that year and the years that followed, Im all for it. And if it results in a heart attack/stroke, well then so be it.

    Hey Kyle, you must not be getting laid by your cheating girl and that’s the reason why you’re so negative. It probably has something to do with her being sexually satisfied by black men and you’re 2 inch dick not cutting it.

    • Not Q June 24, 2013 at 12:26 pm

      Did you eat a lot of paint chips as a kid?

  • AC June 29, 2013 at 12:05 am

    Someone better go check if Howard Eskin needs some smelling salts.

    Phillies 12 – Dodgers 0, 6th inning
