Manuel meeting with players before break
PHILADELPHIA -- With the All-Star break coming on Monday, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel took time on Saturday to walk around and talk to each of his players individually.

The skipper said he usually has a meeting with the entire club before the break, but decided to do it differently this year. He said the feedback thus far had been good. As of a couple hours before Saturday's first pitch, he had yet to talk to a couple players.

"I just felt like I wanted to do it," Manuel said. "I feel like it's better to sit there and talk to the individual one-on-one. I think it gives them a chance to open up to you. I think you can get more out of it that way sometimes. It's just kinda how I felt."
