Time To Get Some New Material, Charlie…
This is from an article in the Daily News about the Phillies employing two hitting coaches. I think the most signficant piece of information is Charlie Manuel’s absolutely horrible joke. How he has any respect by the players after this one is beyond me:
On Monday morning at Bright House Field, Ben Revere took pregame cuts in the batter’s box with Phillies manager Charlie Manuel listening from behind the hitting screen.
Thhhwack! Revere, the Phillies fleet-footed centerfielder, drove a ball to center.
Thhhwack! He lined another to right.
“That’s Paul Revere’s kid,” Manuel said.
Revere smiled, nodded and joked back at his manager
Revere may have smiled, but he had to have rolled his eyes after he turned away.
