    PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Charlie Manuel, the winningest manager in Philadelphia Phillies franchise history, was fired on Friday as the boss of the Major League Baseball team. The 69-year-old Manuel led the Phillies to their second World Series championship in 2008. He has been in charge of the National League team since 2005 and compiled a 780-636 record over his eight-plus years. Manuel was replaced by interim manager Ryne Sandberg, who lost 4-0 in his debut as the dugout boss.
