Before Jonathan Papelbon arrived in Philadelphia on Monday and donned his new No. 58 jersey, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel had never met his newest weapon.

But from the opposing dugout, Manuel had seen enough.

"You watch how he pulls his hat down, and his eyes get big, and he stares down at you, and he sends the hitter a message," Manuel said.

That's the personality Manuel loves to see in his players, which is probably why Papelbon took note of what he saw in the Phillies' dugout, too.
