Before Ryan Howard's twin brother sued him for $2.8 million; before his father, who helped manage the Phillies slugger's money, allegedly requested a $10 million separation payment; before Howard claimed his parents and brothers conspired to defraud him, Howard planned a mansion with eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The sprawling Florida home was a place for the family - especially Corey, Ryan's look-alike confidant who moved from St. Louis to Philadelphia in 2008 to live with Ryan.

DENVER - The youngest position player on the Phillies' 40-man roster was inserted into the lineup two Fridays ago and has since played every inning of every game. Thirty-eight plate appearances helped make up Maikel Franco's first nine days as the team's everyday third baseman. The nine-game sample offered more positives than negatives and, most important for the Phillies' future, plenty of the promise the 22-year-old third baseman had displayed the last few seasons in the minors.

T HE TEXT buzzed Ruben Amaro Jr.'s phone sometime in mid-afternoon yesterday, after he issued a couple of mea culpas on the radio and before appearing in front of reporters and television cameras inside the visitor's dugout at Citi Field. "Dad, what did you say about the fans?" Andrea Amaro asked. "Sweetheart, I'll talk to you later," the Phillies general manager texted back to his high school-aged daughter. "I'm going to go and apologize now. There was a little bit of a misunderstanding.

HERE IS WHAT I know, from years of experience: Progress is like a freight train. It starts off slow enough that if you miss it at the beginning, you can sprint down the platform and jump onboard. But if you do not start running until you see the caboose, then you probably will end up face-down in the gravel next to the hobos who skipped gym class. If the smoke signals billowing out of Citizens Bank Park are to be believed, the Phillies still don't even understand that there is a train.

Plenty of business needs to be resolved in these final seven weeks of the Phillies' season. Some of it is being conducted right now down in Clearwater, Fla., a fitting location, considering the 2013 season has been relegated to a second spring training of sorts. Two players - Ryan Howard and Roy Halladay - making more money than two entire teams - Miami and Houston - are trying to get healthy. The recovery of Howard's surgically repaired left knee is considered as important as any plate appearance the Phillies will have in the big leagues between now and the Sept.

This may sound odd, but the Phillies need to be more in a rush to hire rather than fire right now. It's time for a new club president to take a long look at all that needs to change. Current president Pat Gillick was unavailable for comment Wednesday and it's reasonable to believe that he was in the process of completing a deal to bring on Andy MacPhail as his replacement. CSNPhilly reported Monday that the Phillies have targeted MacPhail, a baseball lifer with an impressive resumé as a general manager and team president.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - For $414,000, the Phillies apparently are willing to see what's left in Luis Castillo's 35-year-old body. The Phillies agreed to a minor-league deal with Castillo, the former all-star and Gold Glove second baseman who was unceremoniously cut by the Mets on Friday, according to a report by CSNPhilly.com, citing anonymous sources late Sunday night. Castillo is due $6 million in the final year of a four-year, $25 million deal, but the Mets will be on the hook for everything but the major-league minimum.

Here is Rich Hofmann's view on the Ryan Madson signing, posted yesterday on his blog, The Idle Rich, at www.philly.com/theidlerich .   NOBODY WILL need to hold a benefit for Ryan Madson. If reports are accurate, he is in the process of doing a 1-year, $8.5 million deal with the Cincinnati Reds. He is safely in the 1 percent. Again, no tears. But how did this happen? How did he and agent Scott Boras miscalculate the market so badly? I still would love to know how the whole Phillies thing went down.

This was simply a night of missed opportunities for the Phillies. In a game when Atlanta's pitching appeared vulnerable, the Phillies couldn't take advantage of 12 hits in a 5-2 loss to the Braves Sunday at Citizens Bank Park. Braves righthander Jair Jurrjens pitched 61/3 innings and allowed one earned run on eight hits while striking out two. In other words, he wasn't his sharpest, but he kept getting out of jams. Jurrjens threw 91 pitches, just 54 for strikes, but he kept his team in the game.

A scattered 26,162 fans - many decked out in Baltimore Orioles orange - welcomed the Phillies back to town Wednesday in the team's first game after a disastrous road trip. Ever since the October day when Pat Gillick expressed the team's plan to rebuild, everyone in baseball has known the Phillies would struggle this season. But this poorly? If they hadn't already, the depths of the 2015 Phillies' ineptitude set in during the last nine games. A 19-3 loss Tuesday in Baltimore, the organization's most embarrassing defeat in years, clinched the franchise's first winless eight-game road trip since 1883.
