Manuel signs extension

It was in the works and a priority for the Phils at the Winter Meetings. Manager Charlie Manuel has been extended through 2011. The Phillies picked up his 2010 option and added an extra, guaranteed year.

For Manuel this likely means retiring a Phillie, as he is quickly advancing in age. But hey, guess you’ve got to reqard a guy who helped lead your team to a title, however much effect Manuel actually had.
