Kerrigan is expected to resign as well. Press Conference is on CSN.

I hope Bowa is holding the door for Wade and Montgomery to go next.

Well,I guess i'm the only one who's upset about this. Larry had his share of upsets this year,and everyone knows that baseball wasn't the only thing on his mind. Unfortunaly,the burden always falls on the managers....looks like KJay was right,I will be the new Phillies manager

Rarely do the GM go before the manager, and whoever the new GM would be would probably fire Bowa anyways.

Wade bought himself an extra year by doing it, if he came back and said Bowa was coming back, Montgomery would probably have given both the axe.


At least we won't hear "Well, if we would have gone .500 in August, we would have made the playoffs."

This is another Klassy move.
Maybe they can turn things around these last two games - crap, show some respect. He was not a good manager but was a great player and loyal to this team and town and Wade humiliates him by firing him with two games left in a season lost a long time ago. You fire a guy midseason to shake things up, or after the year if you respect that person - 2 games left and dump him? That is a move to save Wades face to the public and a pathetic one at that.
Wade gets an F this year for his job and the F dont stand for funny.

probably not a very classy move firing Bowa with 2 games left.
BUT dont expect any sympathy from me being a Mets fan. you want to talk about messes? ya their is a bigger mess up in Flushing.

please dont ask, Met and Flyer fan. yes i know, lol
