'HE'LL BE gone by the Fourth of July," the snowy-haired owner of the local hardware store said when I stopped in over the weekend. "They just said they're not going to cut Howard," I said. "Not Howard," he said. "The manager. Mackanin. They've got to get rid of him. " Just a little over a month ago the Phillies were seven games over .500, a half game out of first place, and Pete Mackanin was everyone's runaway choice for manager of the year. But this is Philadelphia, the birthplace of knee-jerk.

The doors to the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park displayed clear instructions Saturday after another Phillies loss: Players were not mandated to report Sunday until 11 a.m., two-and-a-half hours before the first pitch. That is unusual; players typically arrive well before then. But Pete Mackanin has tried everything else to loosen his uptight roster that has descended into the deepest depths of bad baseball. Most of the Phillies still came to the ballpark before 11. They wished the dads in the room a happy Father's Day. The players stepped onto the field for some pregame drills, and shortstop Freddy Galvis pretended to pitch while catcher Cameron Rupp swung an imaginary bat. The team looked loose.

When Jeanmar Gomez trotted Tuesday night from the bullpen to the Citizens Bank Park mound, the most difficult of save situations awaited him. The Cubs, winners of 40 of their first 56 games, loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth inning. The heart of Chicago's lineup was due up. Gomez not only had to preserve a two-run lead, he had to record six outs to seal a 3-2 Phillies win. Pete Mackanin handed Gomez the ball. The Phillies manager retreated to the dugout and noticed a difference in the tranquil Venezuelan closer.

When Pete Mackanin devised his 45th lineup in 52 games, he batted Cesar Hernandez eighth, and the message Tuesday was implied. Then, to leave no doubt, the Phillies manager said what he was thinking about his second baseman. "I expect more out of him," Mackanin said. The Phillies have spent a significant amount of time evaluating Hernandez, a 26-year-old infielder who was 16 when he signed with the Phillies. Hernandez does not hit for power, which means he must hit for average to justify a starting spot.

Jeremy Hellickson was throwing freely and effectively. The Phillies righthander needed just 79 pitches to get through seven innings Monday night, with the Phillies leading, 2-1. But his night was finished and as it turns out, so was his team. Hector Neris, who entered the game having been unscored upon in his previous 92/3 innings, lasted only two-thirds of an inning. Neris allowed three runs as the Washington Nationals beat the Phillies, 4-3, before 21,993 at Citizens Bank Park.

CHICAGO - Maikel Franco tossed his bat into the air, and watched it flip end over end before it crashed into the dirt near home plate. Another scoreless inning was finished. Another futile at-bat was complete. The team's punchless offense came up empty again. The Phillies did not score a run Saturday afternoon until there were two outs in the ninth, and they fell to the Cubs, 4-1, at Wrigley Field. The Phillies were a routine pop-up from being shut out for the third time this season.

CHICAGO - If you enjoyed Odubel Herrera's emphatic bat flip - the lumber is still floating somewhere over Detroit's Comerica Park - then you should catch a flight this winter to Latin America, where the player's enthusiasm has its roots. Herrera, who has been the team's source of energy this season, has played with flair since the Phillies acquired him before last season. He slaps his hands to his batting helmet after big hits, mimicking a pair of bull horns to match his nickname of "El Torito.

CHICAGO - Pete Mackanin had high praise for Freddy Galvis, who scored the team's lone run on Saturday afternoon and made an excellent relay throw to keep a run from scoring in a 4-1 loss to the Cubs. "If he's not the best shortstop in the league, I'd like to see the guy that's playing as consistent defense as he is," Mackanin said. Galvis has made just one error this season in 48 games and has played 44 games without an error. Galvis made eight errors last season in the first 48 games.

CHICAGO - Maikel Franco promised that he would be ready to play Friday after he left Wednesday's game with a sprained ankle. He said his ankle would be fine after the Phillies had a scheduled off day Thursday. Franco was right. He started at third base Friday and drove in both of the team's runs in a 6-2 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field. He went 1 for 2 with a walk and two RBIs. Franco had a sacrifice fly in the third and an RBI single in the seventh. The ankle was not an issue, manager Pete Mackanin said.

CHICAGO - David Ross walked to the top of the dugout steps on Friday afternoon and doffed his helmet, much to the pleasure of the raucous Wrigley Field crowd. Adam Morgan, who allowed three homers in a 6-2 loss to the Cubs, was left alone on the mound as he weathered another frustrating start. Morgan allowed six runs on eight hits. He was removed in the fifth inning after giving up a leadoff homer to Kris Bryant. Morgan has allowed 22 earned runs in 292/3 innings since being promoted from triple A at the end of April.
