Question: I recently rented an SUV from Enterprise in Tenafly, N.J. A manager and I walked around the car before I left the lot. Neither of us saw any damage. A week later, when I returned the car, a regional manager, who was taller than both myself and the store manager, noticed two outward-facing dings in the roof of the vehicle. He even asked if anyone had gotten mad and punched the roof, or carried any cargo that could have caused the damage. The store manager who had missed the damage on the first inspection had to climb up into the car to get a look at the top; at that point, he said he never could have missed it. Enterprise wants us to pay for the damage.

Jeff Trout tries never to miss a Los Angeles Angels game since his son, Mike, is a fixture in the outfield. And Jeff Trout enjoys seeing his old manager, Charlie Manuel, guide the Phillies, a team the elder Trout has been following his entire life.

Zack Wheeler left the New York Mets and their fans hovering around the panic button Wednesday morning. The franchise's best pitching prospect hurt himself hitting. A routine session in the batting cage led to tightness in Wheeler's right side, forcing the Mets to pull the plug on his starting assignment less than 90 minutes before a 12-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. The Mets were calling the injury a mild right oblique strain. General manager Sandy Alderson told reporters there was no timetable yet but said the decision to sit Wheeler was "mostly precautionary at this point.

THE SOUTH STREET jewelry-store owner was shaking in the darkness, a pillowcase over his head and his body tied up by a team of armed, masked men. The bandits then ordered Mustapha Abdallah, 27, owner of VIP Jewelers, to kneel and say a Muslim prayer, according to a store manager, who declined to give his name to reporters yesterday. They wanted him to say the prayer "to finish him off," the manager said. They wanted to scare him into giving them the keys to the store, he added.

Charlie Manuel said two months ago that he'd probably be back with the Phillies before the start of spring training after being fired as the team's manager in August. Now, it appears it will soon become official. WPEN-FM (97.5) reported Wednesday that Manuel has accepted an invitation to rejoin the team. Citing a source, CSNPhilly.com said that the winningest manager in club history would be a senior adviser to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. That report said Manuel would work with minor-league hitters, evaluate minor-league players, and handle some scouting assignments.
