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.

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.

Question: I recently rented an SUV from Enterprise in Tenafly, N.J. A manager and I walked around the car before I left the lot. Neither of us saw any damage. A week later, when I returned the car, a regional manager, who was taller than both myself and the store manager, noticed two outward-facing dings in the roof of the vehicle. He even asked if anyone had gotten mad and punched the roof, or carried any cargo that could have caused the damage. The store manager who had missed the damage on the first inspection had to climb up into the car to get a look at the top; at that point, he said he never could have missed it. Enterprise wants us to pay for the damage.
