It appears the Phillies' troika of middle relievers who factored significantly in last season's World Series title run will be out a little longer than the club had originally hoped. Lefthander J.C. Romero, who went on the disabled list with a strained left forearm, was eligible to be activated yesterday. But assistant general manager Scott Proefrock conceded that Romero is coming along a little more slowly than hoped. "Yeah, I would think that's fair to say," Proefrock said before the Phillies began a six-game homestand last night against Colorado.

Clay Condrey and two relievers held Richmond to four hits last night and Shawn Wooten hit a two-run single in the sixth inning as Scranton Wilkes-Barre beat the Braves, 2-1, in the International League. Condrey (7-6) had allowed 31 earned runs in 19 innings in July, but escaped a bases-loaded jam with no outs in the fourth and lasted 7 1/3 innings, allowing three hits. Jim Crowell and Spike Lundberg finished, with Lundberg getting his third save. Ryan Howard batted cleanup in his triple-A debut, going 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Former Phillies righthander Clay Condrey and the Minnesota Twins have agreed to terms on a 1-year, free-agent contract. The Twins announced the deal with the reliever yesterday. Minnesota also released righthanded reliever Bobby Keppel. The 34-year-old Condrey became a free agent after pitching four seasons for the Phillies, going 6-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 42 innings last year for the NL champions. Condrey walked 14 and struck out 25. He became a free agent when the Phillies did not tender him a contract in December.

Baseball's off-season enters a new phase at 11:59 p.m. tonight, when teams must decide whether to tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players. Non-tendered players become free agents at midnight. Barring an unexpected change, the Phillies will offer arbitration to righthanders Chad Durbin, Clay Condrey and Joe Blanton. Several non-tender candidates could be attractive to the Phils, who are looking for a late-inning reliever and back-of-the-rotation starter. The possibilities include Washington closer Mike McDougal, who became expendable when the Nationals acquired reliever Brian Bruney from the New York Yankees, and San Diego starter Kevin Correia, expected to be non-tendered.

SAN DIEGO - These are the nights that breed the most frustration. An otherworldly pitcher was human for the span of three batters and it was the difference between winning and losing. Without any semblance of a consistent offense, the Phillies straddle such a precarious line nightly. Roy Halladay did not possess his typical pristine command of his pitches in a 5-1 loss. He had half as many hits as the players paid millions to actually hit the baseball. So the Phillies lost to the worst team in baseball and there was nothing surprising about it - save the uncharacteristic spell of Halladay walks.

YOU HEAR IT all the time, that each year's Phillies team owns a different personality than the one before. But only when you scan the rosters of the Phillies teams responsible for their string of five straight division titles does the axiom become emphasized. Scott Eyre, Eric Bruntlett, So Taguchi, Tadahito Iguchi, Clay Condrey. Tom Gordon, Rudy Seanez, Chad Durbin, Abraham Nunez. Antonio Alfonseca, Jose Mesa, Paul Bako, Chan Ho Park. Tyler Walker, Jack Taschner . . . You get the gist.

Two years into his new role as a full-time reliever, Chad Durbin learned how fickle the role can be. In 2008, Durbin was one of Charlie Manuel's most reliable pitchers. He had a 2.87 ERA and 40 of his 71 appearances for the Phillies came in the seventh or eighth inning. But those 71 games also marked a career high. So Durbin took a few extra weeks off during the off-season to rest his arm. But as he began 2009, he said he realized he didn't have his legs and had failed to do all of the core exercise work he needed.

Dependability and predictability are great qualities for a baseball starting pitcher, and the way Ruben Amaro Jr. sees it, Joe Blanton is the roster equivalent of a washing machine that earns a solid "good" from Consumer Reports. Maybe there are models out there that look better on the showroom floor. Maybe some can deliver brighter colors and crisper whites. But throw the switch on the Blantonator and the clothes will get washed. "We know what we're going to get," Amaro said when the Phillies signed Blanton to a three-year, $24 million contract last week.

One of the final tasks remaining for Ruben Amaro Jr. in this busy off-season for the Phillies is to fortify a bullpen that was a weakness last season. The market is full of relievers, and a few even have closing experience. Considering that the Phillies had 22 blown saves last season (which tied them with four teams for the eighth most in baseball), adding a former closer could have advantages. The Phillies have shown interest in at least one such pitcher: Mike MacDougal, who closed last season for the Washington Nationals.

Saturday night's non-tender deadline ensured a busy week of free-agent activity in baseball and created several intriguing possibilities for the Phillies. Minutes after the 11:59 p.m. deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players, the Phils announced that they had not offered arbitration to righthander Clay Condrey. That made the 34-year-old righthander a free agent and created another opening in a bullpen already seeking help. The decision to pass on Condrey came as something of a surprise after general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.'s comments last week about Condrey and fellow righthander Chad Durbin.

So, is it true that if you win a World Series you never have to buy another meal or drink in this town again? "Especially if you wear your ring out here, there'll probably be a few more things thrown at you," said Phillies pitcher Clay Condrey, mentioning that he usually prefers to "stay incognito. " For the higher-profile Phillies, the attention is automatic - and so are the perks from winning it all. Quite a few of last season's World Series champions made money well beyond their salaries and winners' shares - and continue to do so. After Cole Hamels was named MVP of last season's World Series, after his dominant 2008 postseason, he became a recognizable face around the country, not just a name.

Charlie Manuel knows that relief pitching is the Phillies' greatest weakness, so he will attempt a creative solution for the playoffs: Send J.A. Happ and Joe Blanton to the bullpen for Games 1 and 2 of the division series. In addition to making two starters temporary relievers, Manuel and the front office decided to include rookie lefthander Antonio Bastardo and righthander Kyle Kendrick on the postseason roster. Veteran righties Clay Condrey and Tyler Walker were not included.
