Good ol' Cholly is back. 97.5 The Fanatic's Brian Startare reports former Phillies manager Charlie Manuel is back with the organization as a senior advisor to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. The team has not confirmed the report yet.
Manuel was fired in August after the poor 2013 season following the 81-81 2012 season. Manuel is the winning-est manager in franchise history going 780-636 (.551) over parts of nine seasons with the Phillies winning two pennants and one World Series. He has never managed a full losing season in his managerial career.
