Ironically coming just days after his 1,000th win as a major league manager, Charlie will be reportedly be replaced by current third base coach Ryne Sandberg, although these reports are currently unconfirmed.
Manuel led the Phillies to a World Series title in 2008. He led the team to five consecutive National League East titles between 2007 and 2011. Since the 2005 season – 2013 being his ninth as Phillies manager, Manuel has led the Phillies to a 780-636 record, a .551 winning percentage.
In addition to winning the World Series in 2008, Manuel's resume with the Phillies also includes the National League Pennant in 2009, a year where the Phillies would lose to the New York Yankees in the World Series.
