CHICAGO - Jeff Francoeur could find himself on a new team before Friday's trade deadline, given the way he's scalded pitches since the All-Star break. With two outs in the 10th inning, Francoeur launched a two-run homer into the newly renovated leftfield bleachers at Wrigley Field to give the Phillies a 5-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon. The Phillies have won six of seven games since the break. Francoeur has been a major factor in three of those wins: This go-ahead home run was his third pivotal homer in eight days.

CHICAGO - The trade deadline can make people a little nutty, including overheated sports writers, so Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon wore a catcher's mask to his pregame news conference yesterday afternoon at Wrigley Field. "I heard things got a little testy today," Maddon said. That might also be the best adjective to describe the feelings of Cole Hamels (and Jonathan Papelbon) if they're still on the Phillies roster a week from today. The trade deadline (finally) arrives at 4 p.m. Friday.

THIS PAST TUESDAY, my son Jesse and I went to see the Phillies play the Tampa Bay Rays. Like many fans, we went to see the Phils' best pitching prospect, Aaron Nola, make his major league debut. I was lucky enough to have great seats about 12 rows behind home plate, which provided a great vantage point to gauge Nola's command and his "stuff. " Nola was extremely impressive in the six innings he pitched, holding the Rays to only one run and five hits, while striking out six and walking only one. To Phillies fans who have been starved for anything to get excited about, this confirmed that Nola was the next Cy Young, Robin Roberts or, at least, Doc Halladay.

Few physicians can claim as many "firsts" as Nathan Mossell. In 1882, Mossell became the first African American to receive a medical diploma from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Not long after, the Philadelphia County Medical Society inducted him as its first black member. And in his most significant contribution to his field, Mossell in 1895 founded Frederick Douglass Memorial Hospital and Nursing Training School, the first hospital for black patients in Philadelphia, and only the second such facility in the nation.

CHICAGO - The Phillies' Saturday starter stood in left-center field early Friday afternoon, shagging fly balls in front of Wrigley Field's iconic ivy while groups of position players rotated in for batting practice. Anyone watching could have wondered whether Cole Hamels might be back here a couple of weeks from now, when the Chicago Cubs play their next homestand. The National League wild-card contenders are among the potential suitors for the Phillies' ace and top trade chip with less than a week before baseball's highly anticipated July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

CHICAGO - The first domino in this month's trade market fell Thursday when the Houston Astros acquired starting pitcher Scott Kazmir from the Oakland Athletics for pitching prospect Daniel Mengden and catching prospect Jacob Nottingham. The deal was the much-awaited first in what should be a flurry of moves before 4 p.m. next Friday. How many of the Phillies' tradable pieces will be moved - and for what return? - is the burning question among the Philadelphia region's baseball fans with one week to go until the deadline.

Pete Mackanin opted against embarrassing Odubel Herrera Tuesday night and the gang mentality was that the Phillies manager had made a mistake. Herrera, without question, made a monumental miscalculation when he hit a one-out ground ball at Tampa Bay first baseman James Loney and failed to sprint out of the batter's box. Herrera's hesitation allowed Loney to throw to second base for the start of a 3-6-3 double play that ended the fifth inning....

The white teddy bear was left behind by a previous occupant in the rowhouse that Glenn Mancini started to renovate last year at 2020 Master St. The bear holds a heart that promises, "You are special. " It sits alone in the gutted first floor as a mocking reminder. "I couldn't get rid of it," Mancini said. He had plans for 2020 Master and the neighboring house at 2022. Mancini submitted those ideas to the Philadelphia Housing Authority, the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority, and City Council President Darrell L. Clarke's offices.
