Bad Load Charlie??

Now, you can take this one with a grain of salt, this is hearsay at its finest.  A source, who is rather connected, said Charlie Manuel attended dinner with Tommy Lasorda in New York the night before Game 1 of the WORLD SERIES.  According to source, who was in attendance, Charlie remained out late (1:30am, really Charlie?) and got very drunk. 
Fair enough.
Here’s where it becomes the thing legends are made of.  When my source said, "Charlie, don't you have a game in like 16 hours?", Charlie replied "Fuck it. I have Lee pitching".
 If true, this is my new favorite quote of all-time.

This story comes to you courtesy of


  1. Now he can say "Fuck it I've got Haladay pitching get me another PBR"

  2. I see Charlie as a bourbon type of guy...

  3. I believe Cholly is on record as saying he prefers VO. I think he keeps a bottle in his office during the season

  4. Jim Fergosi seemed like a big drinker to me

  5. I believe John Kruk mentioned that Fregosi was fond of scotches on the rocks
