Ed Rendell believes Charlie Manuel has ben the best manager in baseball for years.

When a team loses its two best offensive players for more than half the season, loses its ace for 2 months, and its third baseman and All-Star catcher for a good chunk of the year, it's impossible for them to come close to their peak performance, and we didn't. In our town, it's not surprising that some pundits and fans are calling for Charlie's head, but I believe he deserves to stay and get another chance with the team that he has nurtured for eight seasons.
