Watching Roy Halladay shake off his manager's hook in the ninth inning left Shane Victorino in wonder. But later, just thinking about it made him upset. "He's an absolute gamer," said Victorino, the Phillies' centerfielder. "That's why it makes it more frustrating that we lost. " Halladay threw 132 pitches, the most by any pitcher in the majors this season and one shy of his career high. He pitched a complete game and allowed just two runs. The Phillies still lost to Pittsburgh, 2-1. "We couldn't get no runs, of course," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

Neither Roy Halladay nor CC Sabathia will last much beyond two innings Thursday. But that doesn't mean all of the luster from the Phillies' Grapefruit League opener will be diminished. It's a rematch of the World Series. Halladay is scheduled to make one of the most anticipated spring debuts in Phillies history. And, well, it's finally some actual baseball after weeks of workouts. Yesterday, pitching coach Rich Dubee mapped out the Phillies' pitching plans for the first week of Grapefruit League play.

LET'S HOPE Roy Halladay doesn't try to imitate the stance of the bobblehead featured on MLB.com on Thursday.   According to the site, the figurine in the photo was never really offered. The site used the wrong photo of the item, taken from a prototype. But that won't stop us from poking fun at the flawed bobblehead. First off, Halladay is righthanded and his glove is on the wrong hand. Also, the ball is in his left hand, but he's using a left-leg kick. Finally, the beard is light brown, but the hair on its head is black.

The Phillies' Roy Halladay has been named The Sporting News' National League Pitcher of the Year in a vote by the players. Halladay, in his first season in the NL and with the Phillies, led the big leagues in complete games (nine) and shutouts (four), won 21 games in the regular season, struck out a career-high 219 and pitched a perfect game against the Marlins. This likely is the first of several awards Halladay will collect for his performance. Halladay was the only Phillie honored.

When Roy Halladay is at his best he can frequently help overcome the offensive inefficiency of the Phillies. These days if the righthander isn't totally on his game, winning can be an iffy proposition. For the second straight outing, Halladay wasn't his usual dominating self, and coupled with another lackluster offensive effort it equaled the end of the Phillies' modest two-game winning streak. Halladay allowed three runs in seven innings as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Phillies, 5-1 on Friday in the first of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

MILWAUKEE - When Roy Halladay first arrived at Phillies spring training, those around him in the clubhouse marveled at his work ethic. What time did he get here? 5:30 a.m.? Seriously? Halladay was busy. He followed the same demanding workout routine he had for years with Toronto - except many were noticing only now because he was on a winner, a big-market team with plenty of attention surrounding it. This was lost in the commotion: Quietly one day, Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee introduced Halladay to a split-finger grip for his change-up.

On paper, this seemed like a serious mismatch. In this instance, the paper didn't lie. The Phillies vs. the Washington Nationals? Sure, that one looks lopsided, but not as much as the Phillies against John Lannan. Or Roy Halladay against the Nationals. With Thursday night's 7-3 win over Washington at Citizens Bank Park, Halladay improved to 5-1 this season, and he is now 10-1 lifetime against the Nationals. Lannan, who was sent to an early shower, allowed six runs, all earned, in two-plus innings to take the loss.

WASHINGTON - When the Phillies paid Roy Halladay $60 million to pitch in the spotlight, they never anticipated he'd be so good at avoiding it. The Cy Young winner's debut as a Phillie and a National Leaguer was supposed to be a big deal, transforming opening day into a Halladay holiday, especially for all those red-clad Philadelphians who formed a traffic clot on southbound I-95 Monday morning. Instead, by the time the Phillies' 11-1 rout of the Nationals began, Halladay's name had come off the marquee, supplanted by Donovan McNabb, President Obama, several wounded war heroes, even Bud Selig.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay sat on a counter in the back of the press box at Bright House Field, the backs of his knees draped across the edge of the formica, his legs dangling below. He wore a T-shirt and a hat and he rested his sun-tanned forearms on his thighs. The national anthem played and the crowd cheered and a slender lefthanded pitcher strode to the mound. All of this occurred with a two-tiered terrace of working media standing, blocking Halladay's view of the windows that looked out onto the field.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The toughest part, Roy Halladay said, was the questions he would face after each start. Do you really want to leave? Do you want to go somewhere else? What's it going to be like to leave? Trade rumors followed Halladay throughout his 2009 season with Toronto, just as they have lingered this spring over Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels. Halladay said then he wanted to play for a winner, which is what Hamels told USA Today before reporting to camp. There was a trade market then for Halladay, just as there is one now for Hamels.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Shortly after he arrived Monday at Bright House Field, Roy Halladay met with Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. They spoke, among other things, about the team's rebuilding efforts. Halladay, in his second spring as a guest instructor in Phillies camp, mentioned Game 5 of the 2011 National League division series (when the Cardinals eliminated the Phillies) as a turning point for both his career and the direction of the organization. The two-time Cy Young Award winner and former Phillies ace feels rebuilding is the right move.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Under a faultless sky, on a perfect fall day, Adam Morgan went to the mound Monday accompanied by the applause of exactly 306 fans and took one more step back to where he had once been. The Arizona Fall League isn't a field of dreams, but it is a seeding ground for prospects to grow, for developing big-leaguers to acquire a new skill, and for players who have suffered injuries to reclaim a place in their organizations' plans. Lefthander Adam Morgan falls into the third category.

DURING SPRING training, Roy Halladay regularly reported to work at Bright House Field hours before the sun rose each morning. The dedication to his craft continued into the season. He was meticulous in his routine. Almost every minute of his day was accounted for and had a purpose. Step in his direction when he was making his way from a bullpen session to the weight room and you'd see the steely look of a guy you really didn't care to interrupt. But then one day in Clearwater, a video-game commercial featuring the pitcher and a Carlos Ruiz pillow began airing regularly.

Roy Halladay went to a baseball game March 31 with his son. He wore a hat to Tropicana Field in Tampa, Fla., watched one of his former teams play, and that is how the first Major League Baseball season in 17 years without him commenced. A few fans there noticed Halladay, one of this generation's greatest pitchers, forced into early retirement by a bad shoulder. He managed to conceal his presence. "You don't tweet you are going to the game," said Halladay, a social-media star who ditched his stoic persona once he stopped playing.

THE ONLY MOMENTS when A.J. Burnett appeared limited by his hernia occurred on the base paths. One was in the third inning, another in the sixth, both occasions featuring a gait that suggested soiled trousers. An inguinal hernia is not a pleasant thing, but in a 1-0 win over the Braves yesterday, it did not appear to hamper Burnett where he most matters. In fact, the 37-year-old righthander revealed after the game, the injury may have even helped him by preventing him from lengthening his stride during his delivery, a problem that at times affects his control.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - In other years, Mario Hollands might not be here right now, sitting in a mostly vacant Bright House Field clubhouse as the Phillies put the finishing touches on a Grapefruit League loss to the Braves. Three years ago, the rotation went seven deep: Halladay, Lee, Oswalt, Hamels, Blanton, Kendrick, Worley, all with major league experience. Blanton went down, and in stepped Kendrick. Oswalt hit the disabled list and was replaced by Worley. In 2012, they went six deep.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - As the sterling major-league career of Roy Halladay concluded in September, Ethan Martin's entered its nascent stages. The 24-year-old righthander bounced between the rotation and bullpen, pitched to a 6.08 ERA on a moribund team, and endured difficult baseball lessons. One of his first realizations was to steer clear of Halladay. Do not engage Halladay unless he initiates it. Halladay was not rude; he just channeled all of his energy toward his next start. Halladay's failing right shoulder and back robbed him of another season.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay pulled a chair to the corner of the Phillies clubhouse reserved for players with jersey numbers in the 60s or 70s - the veterans hanging onto major-league hopes and the prospects experiencing their first taste of the life. Halladay wanted to see No. 70. Jesse Biddle, 22 and lifelong Phillies fan, listened while the rest of the room emptied for the day. "There are a lot of things you want to learn from a guy like that," Biddle said. "He's a Hall of Famer.
