The Phillies on Friday made a difficult decision, replacing Charlie Manuel with third-base coach Ryne Sandberg (see story).

Manuel's last managerial win was his 1,000th, 780 of which came with the Phillies, most in team history. He managed the Phillies to a 2008 World Series title, their first championship since 1980.

The Phils were 53-67 when Manuel was relieved of his duties.

Meanwhile, Sandberg won't make any drastic changes in his first game as the interim skipper. His lineup remains the same as Manuel's last.

How are some of Manuel's former players reacting to the change? Here are some of their Twitter reactions:

Ben Revere

Justin De Fratus

Kevin Frandsen

Michael Stutes

Scott Eyre

Jayson Werth
