Bobby Abreu stood Monday in the outfield at Citizens Bank Park and took a look around at the 45,000-plus fans, the same Phillies faithful he had played in front of for nearly nine seasons. And yet on a damp June night, as Abreu played in Philadelphia for the first time since being traded to the New York Yankees in 2006, so much was different. Those were happy days, he said, even if his time here came to an end when he was labeled a poor clubhouse guy and shipped to New York for little in return.

It is unknown whether D.J. Reyburn can read minds. It is fairly certain, though, that Bud Selig and his posse in the commissioner's office can read written words. So Jonathan Papelbon won't be fined for being the first player ejected because an umpire read his thoughts. But the Phillies closer probably can expect an involuntary payroll deduction for his comments after Monday night's 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I thought he was terrible," Papelbon said of Reyburn's work behind the plate.

LOS ANGELES – If the Phillies are going to make the kind of second-half run they insist is possible, they likely will need to utilize the same formula that Monday night led to a 3-2 win over the Dodgers. That means excellent starting pitching, near-flawless relief, and some timely hitting from their established stars. Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins both hit solo home runs, while Joe Blanton held the Dodgers to two runs over eight innings before turning things over to Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth as the Phillies won for the third time in four games since the All-Star break.

Wes Covington, a powerful outfielder on the ill-fated 1964 Phillies team whose unorthodox batting stance was mimicked by a generation of young Philadelphians, died July 4 in Edmonton, Alberta, where he had made his home for decades. Mr. Covington, 79, who hit 131 home runs in 11 big-league seasons, succumbed to cancer, according to family members. A North Carolina native who was signed by the Boston Braves in 1952, Mr. Covington, at his first minor-league stop in Eau Claire, Wis., initially overshadowed his teammate, future Hall of Famer Hank Aaron.

When someone is doing things the way Tommy Bergjans has for the last four years, good things are bound to happen. For the Haverford College righthander, the best possible scenario played itself out Tuesday in Day 2 of the Major League Baseball first-year player draft when the Los Angeles Dodgers selected the Manhattan Beach, Calif., native with their eighth-round pick (252d overall). "This has always been my dream," said Bergjans, who graduated with a degree in economics. "It's an incredible feeling.

In a move to bolster their rotation for the stretch run, the Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran righthander Greg Maddux from the San Diego Padres, the Los Angeles Times reported last night. The newspaper cited an anonymous person close to the deal. It was not known who San Diego would receive in return. The 42-year-old Maddux is 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA this season. He is 353-223 in a 22-year big-league career, having won four consecutive Cy Young Awards from 1992 to 1995.

IN OCTOBER, hockey great Gordie Howe was so debilitated by a stroke he wanted to die. "He was saying, 'Take me out back and shoot me,' " son Murray Howe told the Associated Press. "He was serious. It wasn't like a joke. I said, 'Dad, let's just see if we can help you first.' " Howe was 86 when he suffered the stroke, which caused slurred speech and loss of use of his right arm and leg. Murray, a diagnostic radiologist, and Howe's other three children, took the Hall of Famer to Mexico where he was injected with donor stem-cells.

PHOENIX - Jimmy Rollins sat at his corner locker stall and nodded toward one locker designated for Yasiel Puig and another belonging to Clayton Kershaw. "You've got 66 and 22. Those are the stars," Rollins said, referring to the players by their uniform numbers. "Everybody else falls in behind them. And that's quite OK. You just do your job, and if they do their jobs, they get the headlines. " If there was ever an indication of Rollins' new life with the Los Angeles Dodgers, it's this admission.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It will be difficult to have a handle on just how far Cliff Lee has come from his injury-riddled 2014 season until he takes the mound regularly in games every 5 days. But after throwing a bullpen session on Day 1 of camp yesterday, when pitchers and catchers took part in the first official workout of the spring, Lee said he was back to his "normal" self. "I feel normal," Lee said. "I don't know if that's good or what. But that's what I feel like. " The 36-year-old lefthander hasn't taken the mound in a big-league game since last July 31. If he's able to stay healthy this season, he could be gone before that date - Major League Baseball's trade-deadline day - comes back around this summer.

JIMMY ROLLINS is relocating to the West Coast for the 2015 season, but his foundation is staying put in Philadelphia. The Rollins Family Foundation announced yesterday that it will stay active in the Delaware Valley despite the shortstop's trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers last month. The foundation plans to expand and partner with Los Angeles-based organizations, too. "Over the years the foundation has helped to improve the lives of children in the tri-state area but we feel our new mission is our most important work thus far. We made great progress in 2014 and look to continue to build on that momentum," Rollins said in a press release from the Rollins Family Foundation.

FOR 9 DAYS, Jimmy Rollins, like everyone else in the baseball world, sat and waited. He tried to keep himself busy. He fended off questions from family members, who wondered if they needed to trade in their red pinstriped jerseys for Dodger blue. Yesterday morning, Rollins had just wrapped up a Pilates session when the phone call he was waiting for finally came through. It was Andrew Friedman, the Los Angeles Dodgers' team president of baseball operations. For the first time since he was 17, Rollins was no longer a Philadelphia Phillie.

AND ON THE eighth day, Jimmy Rollins was still a member of the Phillies, but still very likely to end up in Dodger blue sometime soon. Possibly by the time you read this in today's Daily News . Although the Phillies front-office contingent left the Winter Meetings in San Diego more than a week ago, the trade terms they agreed to with the Los Angeles Dodgers had not been finalized as of late last night. It would still be startling, however, if the Rollins trade isn't a done deal before the weekend.

SAN DIEGO - Six months ago, one Phillies icon took the hand of another and raised it in the air in celebration on a sunny, summer afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt, the best player in team history, walked onto the field and congratulated Jimmy Rollins after the shortstop laced a single to rightfield off Edwin Jackson for the 2,235th hit of his career. Rollins passed Schmidt that day, becoming the hit king for a franchise that's been doing business for 132 years.

NEW YORK - David Buchanan was upset when he was removed from last Saturday's game after 90 pitches in five innings. His comments sparked a meeting with manager Ryne Sandberg. The hook Friday, in a 4-1 Phillies loss to the Mets, arrived at 64 pitches in six sharp innings. The rookie righthander might have seethed again, since Domonic Brown, pinch-hitting for the pitcher, grounded into an inning-ending double play just before New York ripped open the game with three unearned runs on zero hits.
