NBC on Yahoo Sports

At the team's press conference announcing their managerial change, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. had a difficult time controlling his emotions. A choked up Amaro told the media how important his relationship Manuel was before handing the microphone over to the man who had managed the Phillies since 2005.

Manuel, who guided the team to a World Series victory in 2008, thanked the organization for his time in Philadelphia and said "he can't explain what the last eight and a half years have meant."
