07:16 AM ET 08.22 | Roy Halladay's comments from after a Class A rehab start quickly made the rounds. Most everybody took them as Halladay saying Charlie Manuel let things slip the past two seasons, and that Ryne Sandberg would get players back on track, refocused, rededicated, etc. But Halladay made a statement to reporters this afternoon, trying to clarify those comments. Here is what he said: "I felt like what was said necessarily wasn't written. And I just want to make it well known that I have a lot of respect for Charlie. There were some articles put out that offended me and I'm sure offended Charlie. And I called him today and talked to him about it. We've been in a lot of contact. I loved playing for him. He was a great manager. Everybody here loved him. The players loved him."

Halliday is upset because he was pretty sure C. Manuel would probably given Halliday a chance to get back in rotation. With Sandberg Halliday is afraid that unless he can show Sandberg that he can be the Doc of old, he will be released.

FANNATION - SUCKITUDE AT ITS BEST RIGHT NOW...... GET THIS SITE WORKING GUYS - COME ON.....

My 2nd note to fannation

The issues with the site continue - this is at least day 3. I don't know what was done - but you have effectively started to drive away your customer base. If that is what you intended? Fine. It's working. Look at the comment counts. They have plummeted - I am sure your advertisers might see that as a loss of potential proceeds. This has gone on long enough......

Hope it gets fixed - someday.

Again - not able to go to any page beyond 1 for each thread.
Scripting failures on submitting comments.
And - unable to quote. I have used two different browsers - and both IE and Firefox experience the same issues.

The IT department at fan nation must be on vacation. The problems have been going on for almost a week. hopefully they will be back Monday, then perhaps they could fix this site. If not, maybe you could hire some one to do it. How many advertisers to leave site before it gets fixed.

Manuel was a necessary firing. He had already done his job for many years. They obviously have been waiting to clear the position for Sandberg. Good luck to him

If it's a toilet, that makes me wonder what kind of place you're from that makes you so jealous of a toilet.
