An interview with Charlie Manuel
Phillies manager answers questions about Game 5 postponement
A lot of us after the game didn't have a chance last night to try to get your impressions of what you thought of the conditions in the field and the conditions at the time, can you kind of take us through how you felt about it, when it went down there in the sixth inning?CHARLIE MANUEL: Basically what I saw was I was down in the room with after the top of the sixth, like when we met with the Commissioner and the umpires, and everybody was in there, the GM's, the managers of each team. And I came up and I watched the interview with the Commissioner on TV and Pat Gillick and I totally agreed with what they said. I feel like at that time I felt like there was no sense in me coming down there and answering questions. There was some things like that went on through the game, like with the pitcher and things like that, part of the game. I was upset with some of the things that went on.
