Commissioners in affluent Lower Merion met Wednesday night to discuss awarding a pay package worth $275,000 to the township's manager this year and next. The predominantly Democratic panel talked well into the night about what to pay Douglas Cleland, the municipal manager since 2002. The deal on the table called for a base wage of $202,989, rising to $207,049 in 2013, according to the contract document released before the meeting. The package includes longevity pay of 8.1 percent and a township contribution of 8 percent towards deferred compensation, a company car plus fuel, and other perks.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It starts anew for Charlie Manuel and the Phillies on Wednesday morning when pitchers and catchers go through the first official workout of spring training at the Carpenter Complex. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end for the 69-year-old Manuel and his aging core of players, many of whom are working on the final year of their contracts, just like the manager. Or maybe this is the beginning of something special, which is the word that best describes the most of the Manuel era. Only fools would say they know for sure.

The Chicago Cubs finished the 2010 season in need of a future and also in need of a manager. During the course of the long and usually futile history of the franchise, this was not a rare exacta, but it was one that general manager Jim Hendry had to address. Lou Piniella, having assessed the bleak prospects, quit as manager in late August and the Cubs shuffled third-base coach Mike Quade into the manager's office on an interim basis. There was little expectation Quade would keep the job, but, again, the team and its fans don't usually lead the league in expectations.

LARRY BOWA appears to no longer be in the running for the Miami Marlins managing job. The Phillies announced Tuesday that both Bowa and Juan Samuel had agreed to contracts to rejoin manager Pete Mackanin's coaching staff in 2016. Bowa had reportedly interviewed twice with Miami this month. But Don Mattingly has been heavily rumored to be atop the Marlins' wish list after he was let go by the Los Angeles Dodgers last week. Samuel, like Bowa, has previous managing experience.

When the Chicago Cubs bypassed Ryne Sandberg for a managerial vacancy immediately after Sandberg had been voted the triple-A Pacific Coast League's manager of the year for that organization in 2010, the back-channel reason given was that the Cubs didn't want to be in the position of having to fire a franchise legend. What general manager Jim Hendry, a protege of former team president Andy MacPhail, didn't explain, however, was why the Cubs were so sure they would have to. Sandberg never got the opportunity to be a franchise legend with the Phillies, the team that drafted him in 1978, but it is where he did get his chance to manage a major-league team, such as it was. That tenure ended Friday, when Sandberg resigned his position 22 months after replacing Charlie Manuel.
