Imperfect Phillies lineup gets job done

Manuel offered an example of a .300 hitter who scores only 50 to 60 runs with only 50 to 60 RBIs. "He hasn't done anything," Manuel said. "He should have done that, even if he's hitting ninth in the lineup. I've heard people say, 'Oh, he hit .300 last year.' And then you look and you see 50 runs scored with 40 RBIs. That isn't good. "Now, if he scores 120 runs and knocked in 40 or 50? Then we're talking differently."

And here I thought Charlie Manuel understood offense.
