First inning: Manuel exerting his authority: He removed Reyes from the game after a single. Reyes pulled up a little lame, and Manuel decided to remove him. Reyes was furious, slamming his helmet down as he left the field. Reyes was replaced by Easley. Reyes went into the clubhouse, and at the end of the inning Manuel followed Reyes into the clubhouse, and wasn't on the bench (Manuel) for the start of the bottom half of the first. This might bear some watching. Welcome to the Manuel era. More importantly, let's hope Reyes isn't injured badly.
Another move by Manuel was to have Fernando Tatis start at 3B, and David Wright DH.
