BUSTER POSEY and Madison Bumgarner. Matt Adams and Trevor Rosenthal. Eric Hosmer and Yordano Ventura. Manny Machado and Zach Britton. The first two already have World Series rings with San Francisco, the second two helped lead a new wave of Cardinals into another World Series appearance 12 months ago, and the last four are all key contributors to the rousing successes in Kansas City and Baltimore this season. While 26 of baseball's 30 teams have hit the road, those eight players are still playing in the postseason.

Bill Campbell, a broadcaster who covered some of the greatest moments in Philadelphia sports history, died Monday at Cooper University Hospital in Camden. He was 91, and his career touched parts of nine decades. Mr. Campbell was a broadcaster for the Philadelphia Warriors/76ers, Phillies, and Eagles. Among his most famous broadcasts: the Eagles' NFL championship win over Green Bay in 1960 at Franklin Field and Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game for the Warriors - still an NBA record - in 1962.

THREE KEY PLAYERS Ryan Howard. Just about everything the Phillies want to accomplish this winter hinges on Howard's future. He is owed $60 million. The Phillies will look to trade him, but could an outright release serve as a much-needed olive branch to disillusioned fans? Cole Hamels. Three teams have the prospects and the mind-set to execute a Hamels trade: the Cubs, Red Sox, and Dodgers. The Phillies will listen, but that does not make such a deal probable. Trading Hamels would admit a rebuild of at least two seasons, something the Phillies are reluctant to push.

THE DAMAGE is done, but the wounds are fresh from the Phillies' latest battle with irrelevance. The pain for fans will not fade until they know, finally, what moves the Phillies will make to correct consecutive 73-win seasons. It was their worst 2-year run since 1996-97, when managers Jim Fregosi and Terry Francona dealt with the Gregg Jefferies debacle. The pain will linger for quite a while. The players might expect change; ace Cole Hamels said as much after his last start, on Sunday.

COLE HAMELS left Citizens Bank Park for the final time this season with a fat lip. He took a hard one-hopper off his face earlier in the day. "Sometimes," he said, "that happens. " It was the perfect souvenir from a season that was statistically the best of his career, but also forgettable since he had little to show for it when it all mercifully came to an end yesterday afternoon in South Philly. In the midst of retiring 20 straight Braves batters - and 24 of the final 25 he faced - Hamels took a comebacker off the bat of Tommy La Stella off his face to begin the second inning.

Jimmy Rollins grabbed a microphone Sunday, minutes before the start of a 2-1 Phillies loss to Atlanta, and scanned Citizens Bank Park. He saw a stadium emptier than usual for a season finale. He saw his teammates, who were paid more than any Phillies team ever. Yet they slogged to a 73-89 season, the team's identical record from last season. The shortstop had to say something at this burial. "Before we're done this year, we'd like to say thank you for showing up," Rollins told the fans.

It was a beautiful day for baseball, unless, of course, it was that brand of baseball the Phillies have tortured their fans with the last two seasons. Not even clear skies and comfortable temperatures could erase the stench that has saturated Citizens Bank Park for far too long. There was no formal state-of-the-team address by general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. or acting team president Pat Gillick before or after the season's final game. None was needed. We've known for months that this was another lost season for the team with the third-highest payroll in baseball, and we've been assured for quite some time that the general manager will remain in charge of personnel operations going forward.

PEOPLE LOSE jobs when teams finish in last place. The first casualty of the 2014 Phillies season is the man who has ran their draft room for a dozen years. The Phillies announced that assistant general manager and director of amateur scouting Marti Wolever will not be back in 2015. Wolever, among other duties, ran the team's amateur draft each year. "There's nothing easy about the decision we made, but we're trying to get better and we're trying to make changes," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

MIAMI - At this point in the season, small victories are really all the Phillies can hope to achieve. They showed up to Marlins Park yesterday afternoon, for the road finale of the season, with the chance to accomplish two things in one game: clinch a season that wouldn't finish with 90 losses and avoid securing a final resting place in last place when the 2014 season comes to an end on Sunday. Modest goals, sure. But reachable, if not somewhat insignificant. The Phillies haven't finished a season with 90 or more losses since 2000, also the last time they finished in last place in the National League East.
