Even when the Phillies win, it seems we can find something to bicker about. Debating every decision made by a manager as a game is unfolding is one of the beauties of the game of baseball, and last night presented quite the situation for some. Cliff Lee, having thrown eight dominant innings and reaching a pitch count of 95 pitches thrown likely would have started the ninth inning nine times out of ten for manager Charlie Manuel. But Tuesday night in Boston Manuel played the sentimental hand and opted for his closer, Jonathan Papelbon, giving the former Boston Red Sox closer an opportunity to pitch for the first time in Fenway Park since leaving the Red Sox for the Phillies in the offseason between 2011 and 2012.
