A still-raw senior and some social media-driven motivation helped Norristown clinch the Suburban One League American Conference boys' basketball championship. Josh Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound senior whose first real taste of organized basketball came this season, scored 19 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and blocked 3 shots as the host Eagles crushed Wissahickon, 69-48, Tuesday night. Johnson and company were bent on gaining revenge after bowing to the Trojans, 55-54, in Ambler last month.

A few days ago, Florida's Anibal Sanchez asked his manager if he knew which game Roy Halladay was scheduled to pitch in Wednesday's doubleheader. Why? "He wants to face Halladay," Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez told reporters. "He was asking four or five days ago if we knew where Halladay was going to pitch, in the first or second game. And he said when we find out, he wants that game. He's up for the challenge. " Sanchez has been Florida's best starter not named Josh Johnson (who currently resides on the disabled list)

EVEN BEFORE Juan Pierre agreed to a 1-year deal with the Miami Marlins over the weekend, there were plenty of reasons why the veteran outfielder was not going to be a member of the Phillies in 2013. Now, that list is one line longer. According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel , Pierre's deal is worth $1.6 million, a significant raise for a player who made the Phillies' Opening Day roster after signing a minor league deal that ended up paying him $800,000 for the season. Without a doubt, Pierre was one of the few pleasant surprises that Charlie Manuel and Ruben Amaro Jr. enjoyed during their trying 2012 campaign.

FOR YEARS the Eagles have touted the silver lining to Andy Reid's playbook. Only Bill Belichick has more wins than Reid since 1999. Reid's 10 playoff wins are the most in Eagles history and rank him 11th all-time. No coach in Eagles history has won more games or achieved a higher winning percentage. Yet what do we say? That we would trade all of it for one Super Bowl championship. One friggin' parade. We used to say the same thing about the Phillies before 2008, but the truth is that these last four seasons have been far more fun than frustrating, have made South Philadelphia a place to be on spring, summer and autumn nights far more often than a place to be avoided.

THE MIAMI MARLINS' spending spree a year ago didn't work, so now they're trying another payroll purge - trading away their biggest stars in one blockbuster deal. Rebranded in a new ballpark at the start of 2012, the Marlins were up to their old ways Tuesday, swapping top names for top prospects. Miami sent All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, lefthander Mark Buehrle and ace righthander Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays, a person familiar with the agreement said. The person confirmed the trade to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams weren't officially commenting.

The Texas Rangers won the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes, acquiring the Chicago Cubs ace for two minor leaguers moments before Tuesday's trade deadline. Kansas City reliever Jonathan Broxton also went from an also-ran to a contender, going to the Cincinnati Reds. Matt Garza and Josh Johnson stayed put for now as the window closed for clubs to make trades without having players pass through waivers. Four days after the AL West rival Los Angeles Angels acquired former Cy Young Award winner Zack Geinke, the Rangers obtained Dempster for infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks.

JAMIE MOYER turned in a vintage performance in becoming the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league game. The 49-year-old Moyer (1-2) threw seven masterful innings and Dexter Fowler hit a two-run homer, helping the Colorado Rockies hold on for a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. The former Phillie was sharp all evening as he picked up his 268th career win, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer for 34th on the career list. Relying on a consistent cutter and mixing in a 78-mph fastball, the cunning lefty gave up just six hits and two runs - both unearned - as he kept the Padres hitters at bay and off balance.

MIAMI - The Florida Marlins played mostly with a distinct home-field disadvantage during their 19 seasons inside a made-for-football stadium that changed names six times. And still they managed to win as many World Series as the Phillies have claimed in 129 years. Ozzie Guillen, a coach when the Marlins won it all in 2003 and now the manager of the new-look and newly named Miami Marlins, was quick to defend the accomplishments of the franchise last week as the buzz about the team's new home - Marlins Park - intensified.

The Miami Marlins added a succession of all-stars in the last week, with lefthander Mark Buehrle the latest. After passing a physical, he signed a $58 million, four-year deal reached Wednesday, capping a whirlwind spending spree by the heretofore frugal Marlins. Along with Buehrle, the Marlins signed NL batting champion Jose Reyes and closer Heath Bell, and the three contracts totaled $191 million. Buehrle bolsters a rotation that struggled without ace righthander Josh Johnson, who made just nine starts before being sidelined for the season by right shoulder inflammation.
