Charlie Manuel and the Phillies learned the hard way that it’s best to take Chan Ho Park in small, one- to three-inning doses out of the bullpen.

It’s been well documented that teams using Chan Ho in larger doses run the risk of astronomical ERAs, fainting and severe swelling in the loss column.

“We knew what the instructions on the back of the bottle were,” said Rich Dubee. “But we thought that was just a recommendation. Now we know the dangers of Chan Ho abuse . . . and knowing is half the battle.”

J.A. Happ will take Park’s spot in the rotation and will start against the Yankees this weekend.
