ATLANTA - Before Charlie Manuel tasted victory in this, his 69th year, he was salty. Maybe it was the brutal, see-your-breath weather. Maybe it was his lineup, which had not produced. Maybe he was just tired of answering questions about a small swatch of a long season. "We've played two ball games," Manuel deadpanned before Thursday's 2-0 Phillies victory. "I'm going to panic.

ATLANTA - Cole Hamels probably should have worn a helmet last month when he faced the Dominican Republic's World Baseball Classic team in an exhibition game. But he was working on fastball command in spring training, and he went uninjured, so all was well. Last week, Hamels was matched up against arguably baseball's best hitting team in his spring finale. The results were much better, but afterward Hamels was thankful he wouldn't have to face the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder regularly in 2013.

LOS ANGELES - Cleanthony Early kept stealing glances down at the hat in his hands while he waited for his turn to climb the stepladder, scissors in hand. The Wichita State forward seemed stunned at the words embroidered on his brand new ball cap: "Final Four Atlanta. " "It's crazy. I still can't believe we're here," Early said. "You try to expect it, but you expect a lot of things that don't happen. This really happened. " Believe it. Wichita State is going to Atlanta, and these Shockers are no longer a surprise after the way the tenacious ninth seeds held off mighty Ohio State in the West Regional final.
