        Its to bad that Coste didnt make the team. Hopefully he might get called up later in the season

        <A hard day: Not every Spring Training story has a happy ending, and Chris Coste became a victim of the club not having enough roster room.

        The addition of outfielder David Dellucci completed the Phils' bench and ended Coste's magical Spring Training without the desired result. The 33-year-old career Minor Leaguer hit .463 this spring with three homers, and he did everything to make the club but sell peanuts and popcorn in the stands.

        He said all spring that he wanted to at least get on the radar for possible future consideration, and he's done that.

        "Small consolation," said Coste, his eyes tearing up. "The chance to play ... That was the big thing."

        Highly emotional, Coste -- who was reassigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre -- cut the pregame session short, and walked away from reporters and wasn't available after the game.

        "He's kind of upset right now, and probably has a right to be because of what he did and what he showed us," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's in a better position now than he was before he came to Spring Training, whether he realizes it or not."

        "The guy hit close to .500 all spring, then didn't make the club," said general manager Pat Gillick. "It's tough. None of these situations are easy when you have to disappoint people, and it's especially disappointing for a guy who's 33 and did all he could. We just decided that Dave Dellucci was a better fit for our club than Chris, but it wasn't easy.

        "You could tell by his body language that it was a kick in the stomach."> (
