The Phillies spent most of their day working on getting Jake Peavey, but found enough time to give manager Charlie Manuel a contract extension. The deal carries him through the 2011 season.

At least one member of the Phillies contingent will be leaving the Bellagio Casino with a win. Charlie Manuel was rewarded Tuesday with a contract extension that will carry him through the 2011 season. Manuel's original contract went through the 2009 season with a team option for 2010.

The financial terms of the deal weren't immediately released, but Manuel surely received a raise over the $1.7 million that his initial contract would have paid him for 2010.
