The Phillies made three roster moves before Monday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the San Francisco Giants. The most difficult move was designating outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment. Just last month, Gwynn's father, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, died. "It was tough with Tony with everything he's gone through," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said before the game. "He's a very professional guy, a terrific teammate, so it's tough. " Sandberg said that Gwynn could still remain with the organization.

When the end is near, it's always interesting to look back at the beginning. Nobody is sure that the end is near for Ryan Howard, and the educated guess here is that it is not. All we know for certain is that the second-most-prolific slugger in Phillies history was benched by manager Ryne Sandberg in the final two games of a series against the San Francisco Giants. That's what you have to call it when a player making $25 million is not in the lineup for a second straight game, even though the opposing pitcher - in this case, Tim Hudson - is a righthander who has been roughed up by Howard through the course of their careers.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has a roster full of complicated decisions staring him in the face as the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline approaches and one of them reappeared on the mound Monday night at Citizens Bank Park. It's obvious at this point that the Phillies need to be sellers in the next 10 days. The part that isn't as clear is who they should sell and what they should expect in return. Cliff Lee, the guy who reappeared after a two-month stay on the disabled list with an elbow injury, provides the classic dilemma for Amaro and the Phillies' potential trading partners.

Phillies lefthander Cliff Lee, a longtime fixture on the trade-rumor list, didn't enhance his value while making his first start in more than two months. Lee, who had been on the disabled list with a left-elbow strain, made his first start since May 18 and showed plenty of rust in front of the many scouts at the game. The lefthander allowed six runs on 12 hits in 52/3 innings during Monday's 7-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants at Citizens Bank Park. "I felt good physically, I just wasn't able to locate," said Lee, who will make one more start before the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline.

AND ON the third day, Ryan Howard rested. Again. After Howard was held out of the Phillies lineup in each of the two previous games against the San Francisco Giants, manager Ryne Sandberg kept the former MVP in the dugout again last night against lefthander Wade Miley and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Howard appeared to be a little more than unhappy on Thursday afternoon. But yesterday, he was a bit more upbeat as he walked out of the clubhouse before batting practice. The length of his stay out of the lineup is unknown, as Sandberg continues to say he writes out his lineup "on a day-to-day" basis.

NINE DAYS ago, the Phillies announced that Cliff Lee's first start in more than 2 months would come on the first Monday of the season's second half. It was conveniently scheduled to take place at Citizens Bank Park, once the cozy ballpark regularly advertising a sellout streak, but now the home of a team in the middle of the pack in major league attendance. The more than a week's notice gave every fan a chance to score a ticket - and every team interested in Lee's services via trade ample time to give their top scouts advance notice, to make sure they could get their flights and hotels booked.

Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon made news last week in Milwaukee when he said he would welcome a trade to a contender. Papelbon hasn't backed off those comments, but there is an addendum. He was asked Sunday how he would feel if he was still with the Phillies after the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "I would be happy," Papelbon said before a 10-3 loss to the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park. "I am pretty indifferent on the whole situation. " Papelbon, who has a 1.21 ERA and is 22 for 24 in save opportunities, said there are positives to staying or departing.

It's no exaggeration to say that Malvern Prep's Gardner Nutter is a true student of the game of baseball. Well, to be exact, pitching. Last summer, the senior righthander spent two months at Ron Wolforth's Texas Baseball Ranch. There, he learned the ins and outs of being a hurler. Warm-up drills, long toss, delivery, command, hip mobility, and accelerated arm recovery were part of the advanced curriculum. "It's really about learning how to be the most dynamic, athletic pitcher you can be," Nutter said.
