A postgame interview with Charlie Manuel and Joe Blanton
Phillies manager and Game 4 winning pitcher meet the media
Joe, let's start talking about your hitting. When was the last time you hit a home run? Do you even remember? And talk us through that at bat?JOE BLANTON: Just probably a senior in high school. That was probably the last time I hit before I even got here. As far as the batting goes, I just close my eyes and swing hard in case I make contact, that's really the only thing I can say. CHARLIE MANUEL: He said he got mad because I kept putting "take" on him.
