Terry Francona is pulling a Gene Mauch on the Phillies.
Thanks to the Phillies' two Mistakes on the Lake this week, Indians manager Terry Francona raised his record against the Phillies since leaving Philadelphia to 21-8. His .724 winning percentage vs. his former team is the best among the 10 Phils managers since 1900 that have managed against them at some point after leaving.
And as impressive as Tito's record vs. Charley's Folleys is, it pales in comparison to Gene Mauch.
In seven seasons with the Expos, Mauch had a .556 winning percentage against Philly and a winning percentage of just .390 (430-672) against everybody else.
Here are former Phils managers since 1900 that managed against them later in their career:
