Found March 27, 2012 on Phillies Nation:
If you missed it on the site recently, I’ve been bringing exclusive updates on cuts from Phillies minor league camp. Among the individuals that Philadelphia was parted ways with over the past week or so was outfielder Brian Gump,  a 26th round draft selection in 2009 out of UC Santa Barbara.I had the opportunity to speak with Brian last week and he agreed to allow a glance inside the process of getting released, his time with the Phillies and other things. Read ahead for that insider content  you can only find right here on PhilliesNation.com .What is the process of getting released like? The process is what the players refer to as “the walk of death”.

We selected a few songs that we think...

Diekman Cut, Lidge Promoted

CutsThe Phils sent Brian Sanches, Scott Elarton and lefty reliever Jake Diekman down to the farm.The first two guys I could give two shakes about, because I don't follow the FeHams closely and we are unlikely to see them in Philly anytime soon. Diekman, on the other hand, might be back in town sooner rather than later. As meaningless as Spring Training stats are, Diekman still...

Red Sox Shut Down Phillies, 6-0

Jonathan Papelbon Clarifies Comments About Boston Fans, Says He Wasn't Trying to Offend Anybody

For Phillies, It is Funny How Bullpen Closer Worked Out

If you listen to some accounts, the Phillies were “that close” to signing Ryan Madson to a four year, $44 million dollar contract last fall.

Papelbon issues weak mea culpa for Red Sox fan comments

Earlier this month former Sox closer and genius Jonathan Papelbon endeared himself to Philadelphia fans by saying they were superior to Boston fans. Today he seems to have satisfied the Boston media by clarifying these comments, but does so in typical not-really-an-apology fashion: “I wasn’t trying to offend nobody, man,” said Papelbon, who signed a 4-year, $50 million deal...

Morneau lifts Twins over Worley, Phillies

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Justin Morneau continued his recent resurgence at the plate, going 3 for 4 with a two-run home run in the Minnesota Twins' 11-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday.
