LAKEWOOD, N.J. — If (when) Roy Halladay returns to the Phillies in 2013, it will be under a new manager. The 36-year-old pitcher has spoken before about his adoration for Charlie Manuel. He again stressed that Tuesday following his rehab start at single-A Lakewood.
This time, it was appended with criticism and praise for interim manager Ryne Sandberg.
"I've exchanged texts with him," Halladay said of Manuel. "Obviously I love him. He was great. From what I've seen, Ryne came in and made some changes and addressed some issues that I think were being overlooked. As much as I miss Charlie, Ryne will do a good job. He's going to bring back a little more of the Philly baseball style than we've had the last couple of years. We haven't had that whole team effort, that whole team hustle."
What, specifically were those "overlooked" issues?
