It's a day after the fact, but it still may not have fully sunk in yet.
Still, it is nonetheless true. Charlie Manuel is no longer the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.
"Obviously, the Phillies are very disappointed to learn of Antonio Bastardo's violation of Major League Baseball's Drug Program. We strongly believe in the Program and look forward to a time when performance-enhancing drugs are completely out of baseball. Hopefully the sanctions announced today will bring us closer to that day. We respect the fact that Antonio has acknowledged his serious mistake and accepted his 50-game suspension."
