An interview with Charlie Manuel
Phillies manager meets media prior to continuation of Game 5
This is treating it almost like a new game. Can you talk a bit about the differences of this pregame, this will be a very different approach to a very short ballgame?CHARLIE MANUEL: Yeah, this is definitely a different approach. Of course we're going to hit for Hamels and like we'll see, I'm sure, that they'll have Balfour on the mound, probably, and we'll see what happens. And I'll decide to send somebody up there to hit. And we'll see the game kick off from there. And then we've got the top of our lineup up. And we'll start trying to score some runs. And Madson will start the game for us. We've got Romero and Lidge, Durbin and Eyre, that's how we'll play it.
