A pregame interview with Charlie Manuel
Phillies manager gets ready for Game 1 of the World Series
Your first game managing in the World Series, and I'm wondering how you're feeling inside? Calm, relaxed, butterflies? What's going through you?CHARLIE MANUEL: You know what, I hope I'm calm, yeah. I'm all right. I'm fine. I'm looking forward to it. Matter of fact I want it to get going. And it feels kind of like I thought it would to be here. Hopefully we can finish it off. What kind of risk, if any, do you consider in using your second catcher as the DH? And how much did you do that when you managed the Indians?
