Phillies manager Charlie Manuel conducted a closed-door team meeting prior to this evening's game against the Astros.
The Phils’ skipper closed the doors and booted out all outsiders from the clubhouse hours before Tuesday night’s game against the Astros at the Bank in order to give the team a little pep talk and accent the positives. Mostly, Manuel wanted to inform his slumping team that a playoffs bid is there for the taking.
All they had to do was go get it.
If it's at all like the Astros' team meetings, someone's going to apologize, someone's going to get weepy, and the home team will lose, 10-3.
