Charlies Contract Issue Lingers

15 Feb

chuck.jpgCharlie Manuel‘s contract became a little bit
more of a hot button issue yesterday as he made it apparent that once the
season starts he doesn’t want to be negotiating.  The two sides are
apparently in a bit of a disagreement when it comes to dollars. 
Manual’s agent told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com that “Charlie deserves to be paid as one of the top five managers in baseball,” the agent said. “I don’t want to negotiate through the media, but they know our position. Hopefully we’ll have something by Opening Day.”

Charlie is in the final year of his contract that pays him $2MM per season.  He’s looking for a two-year extension that would put his annual salary in the neighborhood of $4mm.
