Friday, Charlie Manuel became the 12th active major league manager to reach 1,500 games. Had the Phillies won (they lost to the Nationals, 4-2), he would have had the best winning percentage among those 12. Instead, Davey Johnson — who just happens to be in the opposing dugout this weekend — moved ahead of Manuel by .0005 of a percentage point.
