NEW YORK - Cameron Rupp got to spend the last day of August in the MLB Network studio in New York City. He was joined by teammate Aaron Altherr on MLB Central with host Matt Vasgersian and analysts Mark DeRosa and Cliff Floyd. Rupp and Altherr talked about the young, rebuilding Phillies and their recent personal successes. Back at Citi Field, Rupp found his name penciled in the lineup card for the 17th time in August, six more starts than longtime catcher Carlos Ruiz received.

MIAMI - For the second straight day, third time in four games in Miami, and fifth time in the last six games, Ryan Howard was held out of the starting lineup yesterday. Cole Hamels and Jimmy Rollins are gone. Chase Utley was traded away, too, last week. Of the 2008 World Series roster, only Howard and catcher Carlos Ruiz remain. Ruiz has been splitting time as the starting catcher with Cameron Rupp for the last three months. In the last week Howard has started just once as the rebuilding Phillies go full bore with their youth movement.

HOUSTON - Not long after the Dodgers were no-hit by Houston's Mike Fiers on Friday night, their clubhouse was a somber outpost of Minute Maid Park. Chase Utley, 0 for 4 in his debut in blue, dressed quickly. While departing from a silence he couldn't have imagined in the long lead-up to the deal that sent him home, he shrugged. "That's baseball," he said, betraying nothing. The carefully cultivated mask, a mix of cool and concentration that for 13 seasons Utley had donned as if it were a required part of his Phillies uniform, got tested on his first day as a Los Angeles Dodger.

MIAMI - The most apparent reminder that Chase Utley no longer plays for the Phillies was found Thursday inside the visiting team's video room at Marlins Park. This room lined with computer monitors - and the other stations like it across major-league baseball - was typically where one would find Utley, poring over immeasurable amounts of film of that night's starting pitcher or of his at-bats from the previous games. The iconic Phillies second baseman's absence was almost eerie. "It is weird," admitted Kevin Camiscioli, the team's longtime manager of video coaching services.

One last time, Chase Utley emerged on the field and walked through the handshake line with his teammates after a 7-4 victory over Toronto. When it ended and he approached the steps leading to the tunnel, the Phillies icon offered a casual tip of the cap to the fans gathered behind the dugout at Citizens Bank Park. This was the final act of a storied Phillies career. Late Wednesday, the rebuilding team finalized a trade to send Utley, one of the city's most beloved athletes, to the Los Angeles Dodgers for infielder/outfielder Darnell Sweeney and minor-league righthander John Richy.

A reporter asked Jimmy Rollins on Wednesday afternoon if the shortstop had ever talked with Chase Utley about reuniting their double-play partnership in Los Angeles. Rollins lowered his shoulder and shimmied his head as he answered, adding a little more slyness to his words. "Maybe," Rollins said with a laugh after his Dodgers fell to Oakland, 5-2. "We may have had a conversation about it. Those things remain between us. " Rollins and Utley - the longest double-play combination in Phillies history - will be back together again.

IT WAS the eve of Independence Day and the Phillies were in Atlanta, but the season was already over. Nobody told Chase Utley. The manager, Ryne Sandberg, had quit on the team. Cole Hamels was pitching like a man resigned to another summer in purgatory. Ut? He was in the hallway between the visitors' clubhouse and the tunnel to the dugout, sitting at a table filled with video monitors. Alone, he watched himself hit, clip after clip after clip, an hour before the Phillies took batting practice.

The San Francisco Giants have made an offer for Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Columnist Bruce Jenkins posted the news on Twitter Thursday night, quoting Giants general manager Bobby Evans as saying he was "just waiting to hear" from the Phillies. "He doubts a deal goes down tonight," Jenkins said. Several teams have made offers for Utley, sources told MLB.com, but no deal is imminent. The Giants expect all-star Joe Panik to return in the coming weeks from a back injury.

ENJOY THESE resurgent Phillies. Enjoy Odubel Herrera's athletic antics in the outfield. Enjoy Maikel Franco's flashes of brilliance with the glove and the bat. Enjoy Ken Giles' simple cockiness, no doubt sharpened at the feet of an even simpler, cockier mentor. But know this; write it in stone: Promising centerfielders, cornerstone third basemen, and lock-down closers mean nothing without three or four viable starting pitchers. In that area, the Phillies are three or four short.

PHOENIX - The only thing that can block the Phillies from trading Chase Utley now is if the veteran second baseman invokes his no-trade rights. Utley reportedly cleared revocable waivers Tuesday, meaning the Phillies, if given the player's permission, could trade him to any team this month. The six-time all-star has the ability to veto any trade because he has spent 10 years in the major leagues and at least five with the same team. Utley has long maintained his desire to play for the Phillies as long as possible, but since spring training he has said he would listen to trade proposals from the front office out of respect for his longtime club.
