Skipper Suspended

Charlie Manual has been fined and suspended for one game for “aggressive arguing and inappropriate contact” with C.B. Bucknor on Monday night in Cincinnati.  Manual’s hat brim brushed Bucknor’s forehead during the heated berating of the home plate umpire’s strike zone.  He will serve the suspension this evening when the Phillies take the field against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
