Ruben Amaro, Charlie Manuel and Phils Coaches Held a Three-Hour, Closed-Door Meeting

Before Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. held a closed-door meeting with Charlie Manuel and the rest of the Phillies coaches. For three hours, the group discussed how things are going (terribly) and what can be done moving forward. The meeting followed bad news about Freddy Galvis (suspended after a positive PED test), David Herndon (out for the season with Tommy John surgery), and Mike Stutes (who the hell knows what’s wrong with his shoulder).
