St. Louis was missing an all-star corner outfielder in Game 1 of the National League division series, but Charlie Manuel saw little change in his opposition even without Matt Holliday . "When I look down at their lineup . . . almost every guy in their order is hitting from .280 to .300, and they've got a tremendous offense," the Phillies manager said. That's because Tony La Russa was able to replace Holliday - who has tendinitis in his right middle finger - with Allen Craig , a 27-year-old late bloomer much like the Phillies' John Mayberry Jr. Craig, just like Mayberry, took full advantage of playing time during the regular season.

THE PHILLIES AND backup catcher Brian Schneider put the finishing touches on a 1-year, $800,000 contract yesterday, keeping the soon-to-be 35-year-old veteran in the fold for a third season. Schneider, a Lehigh Valley native, made 36 starts for the Phillies last season and the team went 28-8 (.777), including 27-3 (.900) in his first 30 starts. From May 7 through Sept. 6, the Phillies went 19-0 in Schneider's starts. Schneider hit just .176 with a .246 on-base percentage and .256 slugging percentage last season, but the Phillies still managed to win almost 80 percent of those games.

Creepy figurines Tuesday night was Roy Halladay bobblehead night at Citizens Bank Park, coincidentally corresponding with a Halladay start. Before the game, Shane Victorino, David Herndon, and Juan Castro proudly displayed Halladay bobbleheads in their lockers. All things considered, the Halladay bobble bears a decent enough resemblance to the real Halladay. The beard is there. But he looks to be cracking a bit of a smile, which rarely ever happens on the mound. There have been bobbleheads that looked far, far worse.

FOR THE SECOND time in the last week, the Toronto Blue Jays have claimed a Phillies pitcher off waivers. Righthander David Herndon, a former Rule 5 pick who missed most of the 2012 season with an elbow injury, was claimed by Toronto on Tuesday. The 27-year-old Herndon pitched in only five games last year and underwent Tommy John surgery in June. Herndon had a 3.32 ERA in 45 games with the Phillies in 2011, his second full season in the big leagues. In 97 games with the Phillies in the last three seasons, Herndon went 2-8 with a 3.85 ERA. To make room for Herndon, Toronto designated righthander Tyson Brummett for assignment.

Scratch David Herndon from the list of relievers who will be competing for a job in the Phillies' bullpen next season in spring training. Herndon was removed from that competition after being claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday. The 27-year-old righthander pitched in only five games in 2012 before being shut down at the end of April because of an elbow injury. His season was officially ended by ligament transplant surgery on his elbow in June. He probably will not be able to pitch until at the least the middle of next season.

There was a meeting before Charlie Manuel benched Shane Victorino. It happened Thursday night after a Phillies loss. Victorino had started 70 of the team's first 71 games, and in his last one he popped out in the eighth inning to strand the potential tying run on second base. He was booed as an ordinary season slogged to another day - until Manuel told him he would not be a part of Friday's action. "There was no apparent reason," Victorino said. The manager was more revealing.

The meeting started at 1 p.m. Tuesday and did not end until almost 4 o'clock. It included Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., manager Charlie Manuel, and the entire coaching staff. By the time it was over, the players were already on the field going through some of their pregame routines in preparation for the start of a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies. John Mayberry Jr. was feeding a pitching machine as Juan Pierre practiced bunting. Backup catcher Brian Schneider was playing catch with Roy Halladay as the Phillies pitcher continued his rehab from the right shoulder injury that placed him on the disabled list last month.

BALTIMORE - It does not take a genius to know the Phillies require reinforcements for their depleted bullpen. Charlie Manuel intimated Friday the front office is actively searching for just that. "We're trying to do some things," Manuel said. The Phillies have just two righthanded relievers before Jonathan Papelbon. One is the much-maligned Chad Qualls, who has a 5.32 ERA and allowed 29 hits in 22 innings. The other is Michael Schwimer, who has all of 222/3 major-league innings to his name.

Charlie Manuel was not surprised to hear that Carlos Ruiz was trailing in the all-star voting for catchers. Yes, Ruiz led the National League in batting average and ranked fourth in on-base percentage and third in slugging percentage entering Tuesday. But fans had voted more often for St. Louis' Yadier Molina, San Francisco's Buster Posey, and Atlanta's Brian McCann. "From the national standpoint, they probably don't know Chooch is this good," the Phillies manager said. "He probably doesn't have the exposure like the other ones have.

His teammates would have to wait one day for the celebratory cigars because Jimmy Rollins never came to Citizens Bank Park on Monday. Instead, he spent the night with his wife, Johari, and their newborn baby girl. Rollins, 33, became a father for the first time. In baseball terms, that meant a lineup shuffle for Charlie Manuel. He left the lineup on his desk for longer than usual, with hopes Rollins would appear. But the baby was born in the "wee hours" of the morning Monday, so Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said it was best for Rollins to rest.

Even the off days are difficult ones for the Phillies right now. Instead of rest and relaxation, the Phillies had to do some roster juggling Thursday as they prepared for the start of Friday's three-game series against the San Diego Padres. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the team is "probably going to make some changes over the next few days," but he refused to comment on the Twitter revelation from recently demoted reliever Michael Schwimer that the team has promoted infielder Hector Luna and pitchers Jake Diekman and Raul Valdes from triple-A Lehigh Valley.
