After his time as the Phillies' skipper ended, Charlie Manuel took his 1,000 Major League managerial wins and his wealth of baseball knowledge to the team's front office, where he now serves as a senior advisor to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. When he's not taking in Minor League games and monitoring talent for Rube, Manuel has found a new hobby to keep himself occupied: dispensing hitting (and life) advice on Twitter.

5. We just couldn't help ourselves ...

Know Thyself
