Hector Luna is on the bubble thanks to his versatility, Google.

If you're a Phillies fan, you should definitely put 'have a conversation with Charlie Manuel' on your bucket list. Just about anything the dude says comes out hilarious, whether he intended it or not. For example; a few weeks ago during my working vacation to Clearwater, I was sitting in the dugout chatting with Charlie who was having some trouble standing. When I asked him what was up, he responded in his thick, West Virginia drawl "Well, I got that, uh, you know, I got that plantar ficus in my foot. And it's a killer." He meant plantar fasciitis. I almost had an embolism trying to stifle my laughter.

Today, on the subject of Hector Luna and his versatility, Cholly had this to say to the Inquirer's Matt Gelb:

"He's played all over really," Manuel said. "He's played first. He signed originally as a shortstop but I don't think he’s played shortstop in the majors. But he has played second before. I don’t know when, but according to what shows on the, uh, Ed Wade Googles 'Major League Baseball' or something that shows it."

I'm not sure what the hell that means, I think that's Charlie's way of saying that he likes the guy. And when Charlie likes a guy, Charlie plays the guy. In other words, Hector Luna has an outside shot to break camp with a spot on the Phillies' roster.

Did you feel that chill just now? I did. And I didn't like it.
