ST. LOUIS - You just never know what you're going to see when you walk into a big-league clubhouse. You might find Roy Halladay displaying the same sort of remarkable command with a toy helicopter that he has with his arsenal of pitches during a game; that's a common sight in the Phillies clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. You might see a hitting display from Joseph Contreras, the youngest son of Phillies reliever Jose; the kid is talented beyond his years. But what we saw in the visitors clubhouse before Wednesday's game at Busch Stadium was as unpredictable as it gets.

The Marple Township Board of Commissioners has failed to reach a consensus on whether to close the clubhouse facilities at Paxon Hollow Country Club. At a meeting Monday, the board voted, 3-3, on a move to close the clubhouse. Commissioner Mark DiGiovanni was absent. The fate of the clubhouse, which needs repairs and is costly to keep open, will be decided at a special meeting next month. "It's a bad building," said Martin Nash, president of the board of commissioners, referring to the clubhouse's asbestos insulation and leaky pipes.

Ryan Howard is a relative newcomer to the major leagues and a first-timer when it comes to performing in the heat of a pennant race. Yet the Phillies' rookie first baseman has been taken aback by the almost laid-back atmosphere he finds in the team's locker room. "If you were to hang around the clubhouse, you wouldn't even think we're in a pennant race," Howard said before last night's 12-4 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park. "Everybody is relaxed and loose, and that is probably one of the biggest things I've seen.

The Klein Co. of Philadelphia got permission Monday night to start blasting the foundation for the PineCrest Golf Club and Residential Community clubhouse in Montgomery Township. The township supervisors voted, 2-0, to approve a foundation permit with the agreement that Klein realizes it is proceeding at its own risk because the clubhouse building permit has not been approved. Klein Development director Clay L. Chandler told supervisors that the company needs to get started on the clubhouse before winter, or it might not be able to meet its planned July 1 opening date.

The Clifton Heights Police Athletic League will reach a milestone today with the dedication of its new PAL clubhouse on the North Glenwood Avenue field. About 50 to 75 league officers, parents and supporters will gather in the building for a 2 p.m. ribbon-cutting, refreshments, speech-making and a lots of thank-yous. "If we try to thank all of the people who helped this building become a reality, we'd never finish the ceremony," said Donald C. Schirg, PAL president and program chairman.

There was at least one place in this town where people seemed reluctant to talk about Pete Rose's legal victory, where smiles were scarce and answers were terse. That would be the Reds' clubhouse after yesterday's 7-0 loss to Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm not talking," Reds leftfielder Ken Griffey said, turning his back on reporters who had hoped to ask him about his manager and former teammate. "I don't want to talk about Pete," rightfielder Paul O'Neill said.

The sullen heat and humidity had vacated Veterans Stadium and left behind a perfectly pleasant evening for a baseball game. The Pittsburgh Pirates were in first place. The Phillies had won four of their last five. So why weren't these people smiling last night? Pirates manager Jim Leyland went out to jaw at second-base umpire Joe West in the fifth inning. Phillies manager Jim Fregosi went nose-to-nose with West in the sixth, protesting so forcefully that he was ejected for the second time this year.

Construction bids for a clubhouse at Five Ponds golf course in Warminster have come in so much higher than expected that township officials are reevaluating its design. The clubhouse was expected to cost about $2.2 million, but at a meeting Thursday night, bids came in at nearly $2.75 million. The increase is due to the booming construction industry, which has resulted in a market more friendly to sellers than buyers, said Bernard O'Neill, president of the township Board of Supervisors.

Although Upper Dublin commissioners still have bids to examine for the interior of Twining Valley Golf Club's new clubhouse, the long-awaited beginning of construction is just days away. The Board of Commissioners unanimously accepted low bids Tuesday for hardware, painting, ceiling design and carpentry work for the clubhouse, which will replace Twining Valley's old pro shop and snack bar, gutted by a fire in February 1989. However, the board rejected the lone bid for ceramic tiles and postponed voting on the bids for kitchen equipment so the project's design company can examine the bids more closely.

The Milwaukee Brewers banned supplements from their clubhouse and discouraged players from using them. Brewers players received a document this week outlining the dangers of supplements, both legal and illegal, containing stimulants and steroids. "Because of health risks, the Milwaukee Brewers do not recommend that any of their personnel take supplements," the document said. "Club policy forbids the storage of supplements in the clubhouse [including in your locker]. Players who choose to take supplements should make the medical staff aware of which supplements they are taking to minimize their health risks.

Ken Giles arrived at spring training in February with his own custom T-shirt. The red sleeveless shirt had "I'm all Fired Up" printed on the front and the Phillies reliever's nickname, "100 Miles Giles" screened on the back. Everyone wanted one, Giles said. His teammates had to wait. Giles purchased a box of the shirts and brought them to the Phillies' clubhouse last week after a nine-game road trip. "I'll tell you one thing, they were like kids in a candy store," Giles said.

MIAMI - Luis Garcia walked off the mound after a recent outing, having needed only eight pitches to dispatch the opposition in order. Once back in the dugout, the Phillies relief pitcher heard from his manager. "Te vamos a pagar medio dia de trabajo, porque no hiciste nada hoy. " Half a day's pay because you didn't do anything today. "Little stuff like that," Pete Mackanin said, "and they get a kick out of it. " Witty remarks such as that one have been more common in the Phillies dugout in the two months since Mackanin was tabbed as the interim caretaker of baseball's worst team.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins arrived at Philadelphia International Airport early Monday morning, less than 72 hours after Texas Rangers lefthander Cole Hamels flew out to Dallas. Rehabbing second baseman Chase Utley could become the next longtime Phillie on his way to a new team if he passes through waivers and a contending team trades for him later this month. As Bob Dylan said, the times, they are a-changin'. "They have [changed] . . . it's crazy," Rollins said yesterday afternoon, before his first game at Citizens Bank Park as a member of a team other than the Phillies.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Cole Hamels' final magical moment in a Phillies uniform last week was closely watched more than 2,000 miles away in Anaheim, Calif. As the players, coaches and manager of the Texas Rangers awaited the start of their Saturday night game against the Los Angeles Angels, they got caught up in what was going down at Chicago's Wrigley Field. Many of the Rangers knew that the trade talks between their general manager Jon Daniels and Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. had heated up again.

BASEBALL PLAYERS are notorious for the practical jokes they play on teammates. During spring training in 2008, former Phillies pitcher Brett Myers famously orchestrated an elaborate ruse on young righthander Kyle Kendrick, convincing him he had been traded to the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese League for a player named Kobayashi Iwamura. The stunt, which required the cooperation of many members of the Phillies' staff, including manager Charlie Manuel, worked so well that Kendrick was virtually in tears before Myers giddily screamed Kendrick had "got punked.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Few moments unfold as you have dreamt them. Life is too complex. It is not a zero sum endeavor. In any given moment, there are other moments, little things that end up sticking in your mind at the expense of more prominent details, things that must be observed, experienced, things that cannot be anticipated. Take the morning Mario Hollands got the call he'd been anticipating his entire life. He can't immediately recall who was in the office with Ryne Sandberg, and he can't immediately recall what he said when they told him to pack a bag for Texas because he'd made the big-league club.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Less than a month ago, Ryne Sandberg stood in the middle of a banquet room at the Woodlake Country Club in Lakewood, N.J., and said he wasn't happy with the Phillies' clubhouse dynamic during the 2014 season. It wasn't a good clubhouse, he said. It wasn't conducive to winning, he continued. Sandberg never pinpointed exactly what it was he didn't like, but said the atmosphere wasn't one in which younger players could thrive and be themselves. The 2015 Phillies clubhouse officially opened up for business yesterday at Bright House Field in Clearwater, when pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report.

COLE HAMELS does not equal Jonathan Papelbon. There, I got that off my chest. I felt the need, since the two men tend to say things that lump them together. There's a huge abyss between Hamels and Papelbon, though. Hamels is a quirky but intelligent interview. Papelbon is, well, just quirky. And that's being kind. From his rambling defense of gun ownership following the Boston Marathon bombing ("Obama wants to take our guns"), to his "I didn't come here for this" comment amid a slumping July, to his unfavorable comparison of his newer club to his old one on a Boston radio station recently, Papelbon is, in the words of former closer and current Red Sox broadcaster Dennis Eckersley, "A whole different kind of crazy.

IF YOU'VE BEEN monitoring those dreaded weather forecasts, the prospects didn't look very promising for yesterday's opening round of the 113th U.S. Open. The worst-case scenarios bordered on dire. Merion's East Course had already absorbed 6-plus inches of rain since Friday. And most of the weather computer models were predicting even more, from a storm that included threats of hail and perhaps tornadoes. Seriously. Forget about keeping this treasure of a golf course playable for the best players on the planet.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Two-and-a-half hours after he knelt behind the mound and thanked God for another opportunity to pitch, Carlos Zambrano posed a question to a visitor, who was standing at his locker. "Have you read the Bible?" the hulking pitcher asked. The visitor nodded. They were alone in a far corner of the clubhouse, one occupied locker in a sea of vacants. Zambrano was seated, his broad shoulders spanning the width of a black leather office chair. "There was a guy who was outside the church, and he was looking for money," Zambrano said.
