For an off day, the Phillies were pretty busy: * Scouting director Marti Wolever continued to work on signing shortstop Roman Quinn, the second-round draft pick out of Port St. Joseph (Fla.) High School who is reported to have game-changing speed, before last night's midnight deadline. That came after the Phillies came to terms with power-hitting outfielder Larry Greene late Sunday night. Greene, the team's first pick, was a sandwich selection, 39th overall. The Phillies also officially announced the signing of 31-year-old righthander Dave Bush to a minor league contract.

As part of the deal that sent righthanded pitcher Roy Oswalt and cash consideration to the Phillies on Thursday, the team surrendered J.A. Happ and two minor-league prospects. The Astros acquired outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar, and then in turn dealt Gose to Toronto in exchange for first-base prospect Brent Wallace. Gose, 19, was a second-round draft pick of the Phillies in 2008. This season he hit .263 for single-A Clearwater, where he registered four home runs, 20 RBIs, and 36 stolen bases.

SAN FRANCISCO ? The two biggest Phillies-related story lines to come out of the recently completed Florida Instructional League: Hot prospect Jonathan Singleton's move from first base to leftfield and former first-round draft pick Joe Savery's move from pitcher to first. Singleton is making the transition to outfield partly because he is blocked at first base with Ryan Howard manning that position in the majors for years to come. Singleton, a lefthanded bat, exploded onto the radar this season as an 18-year-old at Class A Lakewood, where he hit .290 with an .872 OPS, 14 home runs and 77 RBI in 104 games.

1. The devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., last week hit too close to home for Josh Fields. The 2004 first-round pick of the Chicago White Sox, who is playing at Lehigh Valley this season, grew up in Stillwater, Okla., and went to Oklahoma State, both of which are about 75 miles from Moore. What scared Fields most is that his mother, Rhonda, was at Moore High School when the tornado struck with winds of 200 to 210 m.p.h. According to The Express-Times of Easton, Pa., she was at the high school to sign paperwork after accepting the job as girls' basketball coach.

On the same day the Phillies signed an 18-year-old outfielder they think can be a star big-league player, they lost a 19-year-old outfielder with that same potential. The player they signed was Larry Greene, the 39th overall pick in the compensatory round of this year's draft. With a midnight deadline looming Monday, the Phillies agreed to a $1 million signing bonus with Greene, according to Baseball America. The player the Phillies lost was single-A Lakewood outfielder Domingo Santana, who was assigned to the Houston Astros to complete the trade-deadline deal that placed rightfielder Hunter Pence in the middle of manager Charlie Manuel's lineup.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jonathan Singleton leaned over the railing on the visitors dugout at Bright House Field and stared. The Phillies were taking batting practice in the stadium where Singleton began his promising 2011 season as a Clearwater Thresher. "Hey, J!" John Mayberry Jr. yelled as he ran past. "How you doing?" Singleton said. By September, Singleton had turned 20, and he was a member of the Houston Astros organization. The former Phillies top prospect, traded for Hunter Pence last July, is enjoying life in an organization emphasizing youth.

BALTIMORE - The Houston Astros have planned a 10-year celebration of their pennant-winning team later this summer and new manager A.J. Hinch can't wait. Not because he wants to see the wide-gaped faces of his young nucleus as they shake hands with Bagwell, Biggio, Clemens and the other Hall-of-Fame-caliber veteran talent that propelled that wild-card team. Because he wants to see what they do to current teammate Chad Qualls after he takes his place among all those graybeards.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - For nine innings yesterday, Pat Gillick and Ruben Amaro Jr. watched their nightmare from the front row. It was 4 1/2 years ago that the Astros officially began a full-scale rebuild by trading away Roy Oswalt and Lance Berkman at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. Over the next few seasons, Houston methodically replenished its stock of young talent with a series of well-reviewed trades and top-10 draft picks. Yet, as Gillick and Amaro sat behind the screen at Osceola County Stadium for the Phillies' Grapefruit League game against the Astros, they watched a team that still has little idea whether it will ever be any good.

1. Nelson Prada, the first-year manager with the Phillies' Williamsport affiliate in the New York-Penn League, has a pretty cool story. Only 37 years old, he is already in his ninth year as a minor-league manager. A native of Maracay, Venezuela, he started coaching at the age of 22 when an injury ended his playing career in the Minnesota Twins' farm system. The Twins offered him a coaching job and he remained in the organization until the end of last season. Prada said he stresses to Latin American players the importance of learning English because it opens doors and makes the game easier.

WASHINGTON - Wow, what a 367-day cycle of life that was for the Phillies. When it started on July 29 a year ago, Hunter Pence was coming and Domonic Brown was leaving, and all was right in the Phillies' world. They had the best record in baseball, and all they needed was a righthanded bat in the middle of the order to fill the void that Brown, John Mayberry Jr., and Ben Francisco could not. Pence was the answer, and no price seemed too high to pay for a team with a World Series-or-bust motto.

HOUSTON - Feeling healthy after sports-hernia surgery and encouraged by his team's offseason moves - not the least of which was bringing back Jimmy Rollins - Phillies rightfielder Hunter Pence looks forward to tackling the great expectations that lie ahead in 2012. "The expectations the Phillies have are to win the World Series," Pence said matter-of-factly over the weekend while on a short break from helping instruct some 160 youths at his annual baseball camp in West Houston.

If the Phillies' priority in the coming years is to infuse younger talent at the major-league level, they will do it with Joe Jordan overseeing the development of the farm system. Jordan was hired as director of player development Wednesday after seven years as the Baltimore Orioles' director of amateur scouting. He replaces Chuck LaMar as the top lieutenant in charge of the minor leagues. "He'll treat people right," said Benny Looper, the Phillies' assistant general manager for player personnel.
