Phillies have a press conference scheduled for 2:30 today to announce they're parting ways with longtime manager Charlie Manuel. 9 yrs in Philly 780-636 NL East titles, 2009 NL Pennant & 2008 World Championship.

Symbolically, I feel this is the beginning of good times for the Mets.

Ryne Sandberg is being reported as Manuel's replacement. 2010 PCL Manager of the Year, 2011 BA's Minor League Manager of the year.

Amaro apparently "broke down in tears" at the end of the conference. Philly Phans I have seen are absolutely livid and are sick of Amaro.

Amaro says the next Phillies manager will need to "understand" what the front office is doing. This suggests a long, long search.

"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

They need to go young. This will buy the Mets some time.

They can't, they have too much money tied up in ancient players. This will buy the Mets more time. Look, the Phillies don't exactly have a storied history either, and I have a feeling that they're due for a long return to mediocrity.

The Phillies farm system isn't exactly loaded either. At least not at the top. Outside of Franco and Biddle they are pretty thin.

Can't wait for the 2014 Phillies to be the first team without a manager.

He's next on the chopping block, so this makes sense.

I hope not. I want them to be stuck with him.
