The Phillies can't hit.

They have not been able to hit since midway through the 2010 season. They were unable to hit against the Giants in the playoffs last year. They were unable to hit against the Cardinals this year.

They are old, stiff, plodding, unaware of when to swing, when to take a pitch and when to run.

Friday, Charlie Manuel started the same basic lineup that had gone 22 of its previous 25 innings without scoring ... then made it 31 out of 34. He has plenty of time to second-guess that now.

Check out my column in the Daily Times Saturday and on about that odd and destructrive managerial decision. Also look for a reaction from Roy Halladay, who was too classy to do what he should have done and verbally rip his offense to shreds.
