Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel is in tune with what his players do on the field. Off of the field? Not so much.

It's done. Jayson Werth is no longer a Phillie.
Phillies fans feared all year that the team would lose Jayson Werth. Despite mid-season trade rumors, Werth remained a Phillie for the duration of the season. But then we held our breath. Werth wanted money. Could the Phillies hang on to the talented outfielder?
