Charlie Morton remembers watching Jair Jurrjens pitch while the two were teammates in Atlanta and marveling at Jurr-jens' stuff. "He was just dealing when I was there and I was just getting by," Morton said with a laugh. A few years later, Jurrjens still has the upper hand. The 25-year-old righthander continued his sparkling spring, pitching six-hit ball into the eighth inning to lead the visiting Braves to a 2-0 win over Morton and the Pittsburgh Pirates last night. Jurrjens (6-1)

Kyle Phillips doesn't know how long he will have to impress San Diego manager Bud Black. Phillips did a good job of it yesterday in Atlanta. The rookie catcher broke a 2-all tie in the 10th inning with a pinch-hit homer and the Padres held off the Braves, 3-2, for their third straight win. "It's a huge deal," said Phillips, who has a .167 average in 30 at-bats. He is on the 25-man roster as Rob Johnson's backup while Nick Hundley recovers from a strained muscle in his right side.

NEARLY A MONTH into the season, nobody besides the Mets seems interested in winning the National League East. Yesterday, the Atlanta Braves left Citizens Bank Park having squandered an excellent opportunity to build on their surprising start, with two losses in three games against the last-place Phillies. Meanwhile, the Phillies actually moved themselves into a tie with the Nationals, who entered the season as the heavy favorite to claim the division title. Like the division itself, yesterday's game felt like a matter of who wanted to lose it more.

TAMPA, Fla. - The moment arrived Saturday at 1:36 p.m., when Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez threw his final practice pitches. The announcer at Steinbrenner Field unveiled the unknown with a fitting blunder: "Now pitching for the Phillies, No. 75, Alfredo Gonzalez. " The baseball world waited for a different mystery pitcher. Masahiro Tanaka, the $155 million import from Japan, stirred in the Yankees bullpen. Three Japanese TV stations broadcast his every movement to a sleepy country. But this, finally, was Gonzalez's chance, 218 days after initial reports of his signing with the Phillies.

THERE IS a good chance that, at some point over the next few months, you will find yourself in a conversation with a Phillies fan who attempts to downplay the ugliness that awaits this organization in the coming seasons. That fan will invoke the mighty dollar, regurgitating the numbers that he or she has heard or read during the last year or so. Franchises like the Phillies do not rebuild. They blow up the roster, clear the debris, and start writing checks all over again. Look at the Red Sox. Look at the Yankees.

Is the Big Piece a Big Tease? Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has been written off more than a billionaire's tax exemptions. And while nobody is claiming he will ever recapture his MVP form, Howard is known to go on a brief tear that shows there may be something left. After the roughest of starts this season, the 35-year-old first baseman is slowly starting to come around. Howard hit a three-run homer in the first inning Sunday and then had nothing to show for three hard-hit outs in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park.

As her team prepares to seek its fourth consecutive Tri-County Royal Division championship, Pennsville coach Carol Penn plans to prevent expectation from overwhelming reason. "We look like we are ready to start playing, but you try to be positive and know, at the same time, that the team might not be as good as it can be," she said. "I go through this every year. " Opposing teams, sorting out their own dilemmas, have found that a common problem is figuring out how to score on the Eagles.

WHEN THE GAVEL comes down Tuesday afternoon, signaling the end of trading without waivers, deals will have been made, the pennant races will have been altered and it will be pretty easy to figure out - on paper - which teams have helped themselves the most. What can be more difficult to decipher is how moves, or lack of moves, will impact the clubhouse psyche. Just the seductive whisper that they could be close to getting Mark Teixeira from the Rangers for uberprospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia , shortstop prospect Elvis Andrus and a minor league pitcher was a pick-me-up for the Braves.

When Jimmy Johnson ran his first few NFL drafts, he used his institutional knowledge of the college game to select the building blocks for Cowboys teams that eventually won back-to-back Super Bowls. The league has changed significantly in the 25-plus years since Johnson made the jump to the NFL, and Chip Kelly is a long way from being mentioned in the same breath. But there are parallels between how the new Eagles coach and former Dallas coach approached their first drafts. Heading into the process, Kelly said he did not do any research on how successful college-to-NFL coaches such as Johnson approached the draft.

AS PLAYERS seeped into the NovaCare Complex yesterday for physicals and paperwork, the questions from last winter, spring and early summer repeated themselves. Who would be the quarterback? The tight ends? Was Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense difficult to learn? Has it been embraced? Will it work in the NFL? Big-sized free-agent prospects like Ifeanyi Momah and Michael Bamiro were asked about their choices and their chances, veterans like Jason Kelce were asked about adjusting.
