Bill Giles swung out onto the concourse at Dodger Stadium from the private box from which he had just witnessed the Phillies nail down a 3-0 Opening Day win, a win made possible by an overpowering pitching performance by Curt Schilling. When reporters approached, the Phillies president smiled and clamped his hand over his mouth like the speak-no-evil monkey. Giles realized, of course, that the newshounds wanted to know about the negotiations for Schilling's contract extension, talks that seem to have gone on longer than it took to get the Blue Route built.

Former Phillies pitcher Curt Schilling announced Wednesday that his cancer is in remission. "As of yesterday I am in remission. Start the 5-year clock!" he wrote on Twitter. Schilling, 47, said in February that he had an undisclosed form of cancer. He underwent at least two surgeries in addition to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. On Facebook he wrote, "To the many, many amazing folks at Dana-Farber [Cancer Institute], [Brigham and Women's Hospital] and [Massachusetts General Hospital]

WOE TO Curt Schilling , who is auctioning off his household items Saturday in Medfield, Mass., to satisfy creditors from his failed video-game company, 38 Studios. Fortunately for us vultures, all of the items he is set to auction were put online. The weirdest item? Two promotional baseball caps for the movie "Flubber," signed by star Robin Williams . The saddest? All of the toys. Even the stuffed animals have to go, Curt? His movie and TV preferences are interesting.

IF CURT SCHILLING really does run for the U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts left open by the death of Ted Kennedy, it will be the race that launched a thousand quips. That much, at least, became crystal clear as the Boston Globe collected Red Sox reaction to the political musings of their former teammate. "He would be good at filibustering," general manager Theo Epstein wrote in a text message. Most of the players preferred not to have their names attached to their zingers.

Schilling vs. the Trolls Former Phillies pitcher Curt Schilling , furious, took up arms against two men he said were marauding his daughter Gabby via Twitter. On Feb. 25, he'd congratulated Gabby for getting to pitch for the Salve Regina University Seahawks softball team in Newport, R.I. The social-media reaction, mostly happy, included some gross and indecent messages. Schilling outed the messagers as one Adam Nagel of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, N.J., and another man later identified as Sean MacDonald.

Curt Schilling was unusually pensive before last night's start. Where were the wisecracks? Where was the opinionated commentary that resonates through the clubhouse, regardless of the topic or time of day? After losing his previous two starts and giving up 10 earned runs in 11 innings, Schilling had his game face on early. The man-on-a-mission approach - not to mention a blazing fastball - helped the righthander post his first victory in 15 days as the Phillies held off the Houston Astros, 5-1, at the Astrodome.

Had things gone differently, Curt Schilling's dramatic strikeout of Larry Walker in the fifth inning last night might have gone down as the most memorable vignette of this Phillies season. With runners on second and third, two out and the Phils leading by a run, Schilling iced one of the sport's most deadly hitters with four 98-m.p.h. fastballs, an extraordinary feat considering the season Walker is having, not to mention his .433 batting average with two out and men in scoring position.

It is, by now, the dance of the dumbfounded. A Phillies batter swings, takes a few small steps while briefly watching the ball's flight, flips his bat in disgust and, head down, spins toward the dugout. Increasingly, as after last night's 3-1 loss to Chicago at Veterans Stadium, these now-familiar steps are followed by the sound of Philadelphia, a throaty boo. Afterward, in a sparsely populated clubhouse where questions about the long-vanished offense easily outscore the answers, there is little sound but the muted voices of frustration.

Pete Incaviglia's left knee is sore. Really sore. But his swing is healthy. Really healthy. Incaviglia knocked in three runs and Curt Schilling pitched 8 1/3 solid innings as the Phillies defeated the Houston Astros, 6-2, before 31,146 fans at Veterans Stadium last night. The crowd gave the Phils a single-season Veterans Stadium attendance record of 2,777,967, topping the old mark of 2,775,011 set in 1979. Schilling was hit on the right calf by Eddie Taubensee's liner with one out in the ninth.

The Phillies did some major reshuffling of their beleaguered pitching staff yesterday after No. 2 starter Tommy Greene was placed on the 15-day disabled list, where he joined much of the rotation that was expected to return the team to contention this season. Phils manager Jim Fregosi dropped Danny Cox (2-2, 4.63 ERA) from the rotation and added reliever Curt Schilling (2-2, 3.20 ERA). That left the Phils, 13-19 after last night's loss to the Giants, with a starting five of Terry Mulholland, Kyle Abbott, Cliff Brantley, Schilling and Brad Brink, who was recalled from triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill Greene's roster spot.

SOME NATIONALS fans might not have liked the Jayson Werth giveaway item they got at the ballpark last night. But if they give it some time, it'll grow on them. Growing, after all, is what Chia Pets do best. Last night's promotion, given to the first 20,000 to attend the game against the Diamondbacks at Nationals Park, was a Chia Pet likeness of Werth that grows a full, grassy beard. It ought to look great next to previous Werth giveaway items, including last year's garden gnome.

Shane Victorino was asked Thursday night if he still felt like a Phillie after two full seasons in Boston, including one that ended with a parade down Boylston Street celebrating the second World Series title of his career. The question was intended as a joke in light of the latest Papelgate incident that surfaced Wednesday night in the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. The Flyin' Hawaiian opted to answer seriously and he essentially said something similar to what Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon had told the Boston Globe, which predictably triggered another in a series of controversial episodes involving the highest-paid closer in baseball.

  MONICA LEWINSKY is back, and this time, at least, not as a victim. She ended her 10 years outside the spotlight in the June issue of Vanity Fair with an essay about her life post-White House scandal. She wrote, "I turned 40 last year, and it is time to stop tiptoeing around my past - and other people's futures . . . (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)" So far, it seems to have cost her very little. In fact, showing her brave - if more mature and more beautiful - face is earning her some respect.

Pitchers, catchers, and a bunch of guys the Phillies spent the offseason trying to trade will report to spring training Thursday. Contrary to popular belief, this team is going to be a contender. No, they are not going to be in the National League East race or even fighting for one of the league's two wild-card spots. They will, however, compete for the title of the Most Awkward Spring Training in franchise history. If you think that's an easy pursuit, you must have forgotten some of the absurd things that have happened in the past under the palm trees in Clearwater, Fla. Sure, that first Ryan Howard news conference of the spring is going to be uncomfortable for both him and the media.

CURT SCHILLING took to Twitter hours after appearing on a Boston radio station to tweet he was kidding when he said his right-wing views cost him votes in the recent Baseball Hall of Fame election. Damage control? Let's just say that Schilling, not known as a funny guy, sure sounded serious when he appeared on WEEI yesterday morning. On Tuesday, the former Phillies ace received 39.2 percent of the Hall of Fame votes, well short of the 75 percent needed to get to Cooperstown. The four players who were selected - John Smoltz, Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson and Craig Biggio - all received more than 450 votes.

STANDING IN the Society Hill Sheraton last night as one of the inductees into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame, Darby-born Geoff Petrie had come a long way from his days at Springfield (Delco) High School. Petrie, a 6-4 point guard and shooting guard, graduated from Springfield in 1966 before going to Princeton to play for coach Pete Carril and then to the NBA, where he played six seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers and was an All-Star in 1971 and '74. But before all of that, the 66-year-old Petrie knows that his love of the game was forged in the Philadelphia area.

CURT SCHILLING is still upset that some people think he was being overly dramatic when he pitched while wearing a bloody sock during the Red Sox' win over the Yankees in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS. Yesterday, he tweeted a photo of what his ankle looked like back then. "Found this in an old folder for all you ketchup dinks," he wrote, referring to those who doubt there was real blood on the sock. It's a gruesome picture, and it made us thank God that Twitter wasn't around when Royals star George Brett had to leave Game 2 of the 1980 World Series against the Phillies because of hemorrhoids.

SIX MONTHS ago Curt Schilling announced he had cancer. Yesterday, he said he's suffering from cancer of the mouth and revealed what he believes is the cause: Chewing tobacco. "I'll go to my grave believing that was why I got what I got," he told WEEI-FM in Boston. "Absolutely. No question in my mind about that . . . I do believe without a doubt, unquestionably, that chewing is what gave me cancer. " Schilling said the cancer is in remission. He has, however, lost 75 pounds because he can't swallow.
