LAKEWOOD, N.J. - The framed photographs that line a wall leading into the Lakewood BlueClaws clubhouse at FirstEnergy Park are persistent reminders of what could be for the youngest among the Phillies' minor-league prospects. The photos form a gallery of current Phils who began their professional careers with the lower single-A team, which represents the first tollbooth on the road to the major leagues. Among others, there are Carlos Ruiz, Lakewood Class of 2001; Ryan Howard, '02; Cole Hamels, '03; and J.A. Happ, '05. At each home game at the pristine ballpark in Ocean County, pitcher Jason Knapp and outfielders Zach Collier and Anthony Gose dream a little dream as they walk past the photos.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - When the Blue Jays were forced by time and circumstance to trade Roy Halladay, a player they really, really wanted to get in return was centerfielder Anthony Gose. The Phillies refused. Toronto accepted outfielder Michael Taylor instead, along with Kyle Drabek and catcher Travis D'Arnaud. But there was Gose in the home clubhouse at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium this weekend. Some believe he is now the Blue Jays' top position player prospect. This is why wise baseball men are reluctant to judge a trade until all the twists and turns have played out. On the day of the headline-making deal, the Jays turned right around and sent Taylor to Oakland for Brett Wallace.

MIAMI - Roy Oswalt will make his debut at Citizens Bank Park against the Dodgers on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on how the Phillies handle a scheduled off day on Monday. Oswalt, who is scheduled to start tonight against Marlins righthander Chris Volstad, will be on his fifth day on Tuesday. Manager Charlie Manuel said earlier this week that he anticipated his three aces - Oswalt, Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels - pitching every fifth day down the stretch. But the Phillies also could start Kendrick on Tuesday, which would be his usual turn in the rotation.

As part of the deal that sent righthanded pitcher Roy Oswalt and cash consideration to the Phillies on Thursday, the team surrendered J.A. Happ and two minor-league prospects. The Astros acquired outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar, and then in turn dealt Gose to Toronto in exchange for first-base prospect Brent Wallace. Gose, 19, was a second-round draft pick of the Phillies in 2008. This season he hit .263 for single-A Clearwater, where he registered four home runs, 20 RBIs, and 36 stolen bases.

The Phillies will likely introduce pitcher Roy Halladay at a news conference today at Citizens Bank Park, according to a person with direct knowledge of the team's plans. The event - it could be delayed a day because of the medical reviews necessary for all players involved - will make official a complex trade that cost the Phils their ace and two top prospects, but brought them the game's preeminent pitcher. According to multiple reports, the Phils will send highly regarded righthander Kyle Drabek to Toronto, along with outfielder Michael Taylor and catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

If the Toronto Blue Jays' charter flight was late getting airborne last night, it was Roy Halladay's fault. The pitcher, drained by trade rumors and pitching seven innings of losing baseball in oppressive humidity, appeared anguished as he dressed slowly at his locker after absorbing a 3-2 loss to Seattle yesterday afternoon. For Halladay, the loss may have been a double whammy. The 32-year-old righthander was placed on the trading block three weeks ago. Since then, he had spoken of his desire to pitch for a contending team, and the Phillies were in hot pursuit.

When B.J. Rosenberg arrived at the Lakewood BlueClaws clubhouse and saw teenagers Anthony Gose and Jason Knapp fresh out of high school, he had an idea he was a little out of place. Then the players started talking. "Some guys would be talking about their girlfriends coming to town," Rosenberg said. "They asked, 'Do you have a girlfriend?' I said, 'I have a wife.' " Rosenberg, now 24, was the only married player on the low single-A team. He also may have been the most experienced, having spent five years at the University of Louisville.

IT'S NOT EASY being the baseball team wearing the hard hats and putting up those "Pardon Our Dust While We Make Improvements For The Future" signs. Rebuilding always has its trying moments. Ed Wade doesn't have to apologize for trading Roy Oswalt to the Phillies last July. The Astros' general manager didn't have much of a choice. His team wasn't ready to contend. His veteran ace righthander, 33 years old, was running out of patience. He had publicly asked for a trade but, with veto rights, wasn't going to accept a deal to go just anywhere.

At this point, it's clear who the best prospect from the Phillies' 2008 draft class has become. One National League scout favorably compared centerfielder Anthony Gose to Houston's Michael Bourn after seeing him play recently at single-A Clearwater. Gose's numbers heading into the weekend - a .273 batting average with 10 doubles, 10 triples, two home runs and 21 stolen bases - are good but not great. The scout, however, said Gose's projected talent goes beyond numbers. "First of all, the kid is 19 years old and he won't be 20 until August, so he should have just finished his sophomore year in college," the scout said.

Houston's Hunter Pence, according to a tweet from a national baseball writer, is off the trade market. I'd like to take a moment to thank Twitter for making trade-deadline rumors more immediate and more dismissive than ever before. Come on, now. Does anybody out there really think Pence is no longer available for the right price? Five days ago, Astros general manager Ed Wade said this about every man on his roster: "We're open-minded to listen on anything. At the end of the day, we can always say no. I just think it's important for us to not foreclose any possibilities or opportunities to get better, for now or the long term.

TORONTO - Four and a half years ago, the Toronto Blue Jays had an opportunity to reshape their franchise with one move. They had Roy Halladay, arguably the best pitcher in baseball, as a trade chip. On Dec. 16, 2009, Toronto sent Halladay to the Phillies for three prospects: pitcher Kyle Drabek, catcher Travis d'Arnaud and outfielder Michael Taylor. On the surface, it looks as if that trade worked out about as well for Toronto as a second trade the Phillies made that day: Cliff Lee to Seattle for three prospects, none of whom is in the major leagues (or appears close to getting to the majors in 2014)

WHEN IT COMES to this year's draft, which kicks off tonight with the first and supplemental rounds, the Phillies know what they are looking for. They also know they aren't likely to find it at pick No. 40, their first of this year's annual selection meeting. With a farm system that is light on position prospects, the ideal pick is a college hitter who has the potential to be ready for the major leagues within the next few years. Problem is, you can count on two hands the number of those players who have panned out over the last 5 years.

THIS IS THE dual nature of the game, the inner conflict, the emotional tug of war. Ed Wade and Ruben Amaro Jr. are friends. Good friends. Really good friends. The Astros' general manager identified the spare outfielder as front-office material when he held the same position with the Phillies. The current Phillies general manager asked him to be the godfather to his second daughter. They have done deals together. Last summer, when the Phillies needed pitching, Amaro sent prospects to Houston (lefthander J.A. Happ, outfielder Anthony Gose and infielder Jonathan Villar)

Two weeks ago it would have been easy to name the best outfield prospect and best shortstop prospect in the Phillies' organization. The answers were Jonathan Villar and Domonic Brown. When Brown left, Anthony Gose replaced him for one day as the top outfield prospect. Now, none of the three is in the farm system. The good news for the Phillies is that Brown has already helped them win some games with his myriad tools, and Villar and Gose are the reason Roy Oswalt is taking that long stride toward home plate in red pinstripes.

For 20 minutes late Wednesday, Roy Oswalt and Brad Lidge talked on the phone. It had been two months since Oswalt, the Houston righthander, had demanded a trade from the Astros. He had been presented a potential deal to come to the Phillies. With Saturday's trade deadline fast approaching, the 32-year-old ace turned to Lidge, a teammate for six seasons in Houston. Was Philadelphia a place he wanted to be? "I promise you won't regret it," the Phillies' closer told him. On Thursday, Oswalt told the Astros he would waive his no-trade clause.
