Gentleman and scholar Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly has news on the Phillies' press conference today at 2:30.
Phillies to make manager change, sources say. Press at 230.— Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) August 16, 2013
And then there's this from Matt Gelb of philly.com.
Charlie Manuel is no longer manager of the Phillies, according to a source.— Matt Gelb (@magelb) August 16, 2013
This news is tremendously sad and disappointing to me. I have many thoughts on this, and the rest of the TGP gang does as well (mostly: why do this now/what is the point?!?). We'll share all that with you as the story progresses. Stay tuned.
UPDATE 2:06 PM: Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com just posted this tweet.
Ryne Sandberg will be the next Phillies manager, source says.— Danny Knobler (@DannyKnoblerCBS) August 16, 2013
My brain is spinning. How's yours doing?
