Were you surprised by Jimmy Rollins' walk-off two-run double with two out in the bottom of the ninth last night?
Charlie Manuel wasn't.
In fact, the Phillies manager said today that he called Rollins' shot, pointing to right field moments before the short stop unleashed his laser of a double, which scored Carlos Ruiz and Eric Bruntlett and lifted the Phillies to a 5-4 win.
According to Manuel, the sequence of events went like this: During Rollins ' at-bat, Manuel looked over to the visiting dugout and locked eyes with Dodgers slugger Jim Thome, a long-time friend whom he managed in Cleveland. Manuel says he then pointed to right field, indicating where Rollins was going to hit the ball.
