Connally High School in Austin, Texas, was a five-tool talent who scouts envisioned chasing down fly balls in center field and burning up the base paths at Citizens Bank Park. Just after 1 p.m. yesterday, scouting director Marti Wolever selected Golson with the team's first pick, 21st overall. The Phillies had gotten the man they wanted.

The next closest, entering last night's games, trailed by 18 points. Marson can't explain it. "I don't know," he said. "I'm just trying to have good at-bats and see the ball. "And have fun. " Marson, who turned 22 on June 26, is having plenty of fun in what is becoming a breakout season. Entering last night, he led the league in walks, with 60. He was tied for fourth with a .323 batting average.

OVER THE LAST 3 years, Ruben Amaro Jr. has established himself as an aggressive player in major league baseball's trade market, peddling high-ceiling but unproven minor league talent for name-brand stars like Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Hunter Pence. But as the Phillies general manager formulates his offseason game plan in the wake of a disappointing loss to the Cardinals in the National League Division Series, his attention will once again turn to the very first deal he ever swung.

You gotta believe Max St. Pierre provides inspiration for all those guys who spend years toiling in the minor leagues. St. Pierre, at age 30, was called up from triple-A Toledo on Wednesday after spending 14 seasons - a span of 978 games - as a minor-leaguer. He is the backup catcher for the Detroit Tigers, eager for his first big-league at-bat. "I'm still, like, dreaming," St. Pierre said in the visitors' clubhouse at Target Field before Detroit's game against Minnesota.

Say this for John Mayberry Jr.: The young man knows how to catch your attention. Whether he is denting the roof of the tiki bar beyond the left-field seats in Clearwater's Bright House Field with a spring training blast or homering in his first major-league game, in Yankee Stadium, Mayberry has a powerful bat, and he knows how to swing it memorably. Because of that skill, one that righty bench options Eric Bruntlett and Chris Coste possess in more, ahem, modest quantities, many Phillies fans have campaigned for the 25-year-old Mayberry to remain with the team.

Teams officially can expand their rosters today, and the Phillies yesterday announced four additions for the stretch run: Catcher Lou Marson. Outfielder Greg Golson. Lefthander J.A. Happ. Righthander Adam Eaton. Eaton and Happ were no surprise. The Phillies promised Eaton that he would be recalled once they optioned him to the minors July 28. He pitched poorly (0-5, 7.02 ERA) in a combined seven starts for single-A Lakewood, double-A Reading and triple-A Lehigh Valley, but is back and will be a long man. Happ deserved a spot because he pitched well in two starts for the team in July.

A longtime National League scout with knowledge of the players the Phillies are trying to acquire says the club should bypass the trade market and promote Carlos Carrasco from double-A Reading. The scout, who requested anonymity, acknowledged that Toronto's A.J. Burnett and Seattle lefthander Erik Bedard would be "a tremendous upgrade to their club right now. " But the scout has watched the hard-throwing Carrasco several times over the last few years and believes the 6-foot-3, 215-pound righthander has a chance to be a frontline major-league starter.

Two of the top prospects in the Phillies' farm system these days are centerfielder Greg Golson, 22, and catcher Lou Marson, 21, both of whom are playing in double-A Reading. Golson, the team's first-round pick in the June 2004 draft, is hitting .331 with five homers, 25 RBIs and 14 stolen bases in his first 40 games. Marson, the team's fourth-round pick in 2004, is hitting .325 with one homer and 25 RBIs in 34 games. "Defensively, Golson could play center field right now in the big leagues," Phillies minor-league director Steve Noworyta said.
