NEW YORK - Charlie Manuel has two rules. Two. Hustle, and be on time.
You don't have to be an MVP or an all-star, a Gold Glove winner or a home-run king. You don't have to put the seat down, or chew with your mouth closed, or say "excuse me" when you spit. All you have to do to be a member in good standing on Manuel's Philadelphia Phillies is hustle and be on time.
In about seven weeks, Jimmy Rollins has broken both rules. First, he didn't hustle.
