Phillies_Charlie_Manuel_2013 [2]Five years ago to the day, Charlie Manuel led the Philadelphia Phillies into the World Series, eventually beating the Tampa Bay Rays roughly a week later. Yesterday, Manuel was talking about job openings around baseball.

Charlie Manuel popped up on a Detroit sports radio station, 105.1, and spoke with The Diesel show, expressing interest in the Tigers managerial opening. Manuel said he is getting himself in shape and hoping to score one of the vacant jobs.

At nearly 70 (he hits that number in January), Manuel says “Condition-wise, I feel tremendous,” Manuel said. “I’ve still got the fire. I’ve got a full tank. I’m still very much in the game.”
