Pho has become a thing, all right. Add a new Lower Northeast Philadelphia branch of South Philadelphia's Pho Ha Saigon to the mix. The new location (575 Adams Ave., 267-538-5600) is a contemporary Vietnamese BYOB with a ballroom-size dining room and an easy-on-the-budget menu of large-portioned dishes as well as the signature soup. A takeout counter is on the way, too. The same family also is behind the two-week-old Pho 20 in Chinatown (234 N. 10th St., 215-413-2020), a more spartan BYOB that replaced the long-running Charles Plaza.

A GRUESOME double-stabbing in the shadows of a small East Germantown tavern yesterday sent shockwaves through the upper reaches of the music industry. De'Von "Day Day" Pickett, a veteran road manager who worked with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Kanye West and Britney Spears, died after being stabbed numerous times in the torso about 2:30 a.m. while brawling with another man in front of the Che Bar & Grill, on Stenton Avenue near Johnson Street, police said. Pickett and a co-worker, Eric Parker, in Philly to help Minaj prepare for an upcoming tour, had visited the bar at the end of a long night on the town, choosing it because they were friends with one of the employees, a police source said last night.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels didn't come out and demand a trade - it's pretty difficult for him to do so only 2 1/2 years since signing a 6-year, $144 million extension with the Phillies. But in his first comments of the spring, in an interview with USA Today published Wednesday , Hamels made it clear he'd rather he pitching for a team other than the Phillies in 2015.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Ryan Howard has not spoken publicly since the end of last season, not since a recently settled monetary dispute with his family became known to the masses, or since general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. openly admitted that he told the aging slugger the rebuilding Phillies would be better off without him. Ryne Sandberg spoke on the phone with Howard about a month ago. Howard, the Phillies' second-year manager said, "was very positive" in...

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels, the longest-tenured Phillies starting pitcher since Steve Carlton, told USA Today on Wednesday that he hopes to be traded. "I just want to win. That's all. That's all any competitor wants," Hamels told the newspaper a day before the team's first spring training workout for pitchers and catchers. "And I know it's not going to happen here. " Hamels, who debuted with the Phillies in 2006 and guided them to their first World Series triumph in 28 years in 2008, said he wants "to be in the playoffs every year.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It will be difficult to have a handle on just how far Cliff Lee has come from his injury-riddled 2014 season until he takes the mound regularly in games every 5 days. But after throwing a bullpen session on Day 1 of camp yesterday, when pitchers and catchers took part in the first official workout of the spring, Lee said he was back to his "normal" self. "I feel normal," Lee said. "I don't know if that's good or what. But that's what I feel like. " The 36-year-old lefthander hasn't taken the mound in a big-league game since last July 31. If he's able to stay healthy this season, he could be gone before that date - Major League Baseball's trade-deadline day - comes back around this summer.

SO, DID you hear the big news? Ben Davis has been added to the Phillies' broadcasting booth. Oh, and the other big news? The Eagles cut James Casey. OK, OK. Here's the part that struck me the most about Sam Hinkie's trade yesterday of Michael Carter-Williams for yet even more draft picks: His boss isn't flinching. And Josh Harris is willing to take all the public-relations hits that his general manager can dish out with one after another unpopular, eyes-to-the-future deal.
