There was more intrigue than in the latest Robert Ludlum novel. There were more meetings than at the Pentagon, more rumors, gossip and whispering than at a political convention. It was just the Phillies going through the annual rite of spring known as the roster shuffle. But unlike in recent springs, when the period was marked by blockbuster trades, the Phils were tormented by indecision. The Phils did decide to send Jeff Stone back to Portland, but their anguish centered on their pitching staff.

The Portland Trail Blazers earned their 11th straight playoff berth the old-fashioned way: by going to Clyde Drexler with the game on the line against the New Jersey Nets. Drexler scored 25 of his season-high 34 points in the second half and hit five free throws in the final 26 seconds to lead Portland to a 109-105 win over the host Nets yesterday in East Rutherford, N.J. "Those are the situations you live for," said Drexler, who hit eight of 10 shots from the field after intermission.

As expected, Milt Thompson has been recalled from Portland and will be available for tonight's twi-night doubleheader against the Pirates. Seldom-used first baseman Francisco Melendez has been optioned back to the Beavers. The lefthanded hitter batted .250 in eight at-bats. Thompson, who batted better than .300 three times in his seven previous minor league seasons, was hitting .357 with 21 stolen bases in 40 games at Portland. The presence of Thompson could presage another wave of lineup juggling.

The Sixers tonight welcome the NBA's hottest team and hottest player to the Spectrum. The Portland Trail Blazers had won nine games in a row before last night's 127-117 loss to the host Detroit Pistons. They have won despite the fact that their starting center, Sam Bowie, is out for the season with a broken leg and their leading scorer, forward Kiki Vandeweghe, is out with a bad back. And they've won without any sort of contribution from their No. 1 draft pick, Jacksonville guard Ronnie Murphy, who just returned to the roster after a month-long suspension for being too fat. "How many teams have lost their starting center and another player who has averaged almost 30 points a game?"

On April 4, John Felske told Fred Toliver the good news: He had made it into the Phillies five-man rotation. On April 4, John Felske also told Fred Toliver the bad news: The first four members of that starting rotation were heading for Philadelphia. Guess who wasn't? Yes, it was Fred Toliver's great fortune to be able to return to the fabulous Pacific Coast League and pitch - as opposed to hanging around the big leagues and vegetating. That was the way it was explained to Toliver by John Felske, anyhow.

Team president Bill Giles says the Phillies are "90 percent certain" to move their triple-A franchise from Portland to Scranton, Pa., next season, a Portland newspaper reported yesterday. Giles, who was in Portland to scout the Pacific Coast League team, said he had made an oral commitment to Scranton that if the city built a stadium and was able to get into the triple-A International League, the Phillies would move their Portland club there. The Portland Beavers have been affiliated with the Phillies for four years.

It's been six years - six years - since Phoenix has won a basketball game in Portland. Eighteen times the Suns have tried and 18 times the Suns have failed to best the Trail Blazers on their home court. Their most recent attempt was on Monday, when the Blazers defeated the Suns, 100-98, in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Portland now has won four of its six meetings with Phoenix this season, but all of the Blazers' victories have been close. Two were by two points, one was by one point and one was by eight in overtime.

ALMOST A WEEK later and Clint Dolezel is still fuming. A scuffle during Saturday's win over Portland was made even worse, the Soul's coach contends, by two undeserved ejections. One of the players tossed was Soul wide receiver Marco Thomas, who Dolezel said wasn't even part of the fight. The other player, Portland's Quincy Butler, was so irate over his ejection that he threw his helmet toward the padded sideline wall at Wells Fargo Center. Problem is, Butler missed the wall and hit a spectator sitting at field level.

THE ARENA Football League's Portland Thunder waived defensive back Quincy Butler Monday, two days after he flung his helmet into the Wells Fargo Center stands. Butler was ejected in the third quarter of the Thunder's loss to the Soul on Saturday and appeared to be trying to throw his helmet against the sideline wall in frustration. Instead, he hit an unidentified female spectator who left the seating area shortly after the incident. Butler, 31, is no misguided kid. Though he was in his first AFL season, he spent time with several NFL teams after finishing his career at TCU in 2005.

THE ARENA FOOTBALL League prides itself on fan interaction. But this is not what the league had in mind. Following his ejection for a third-quarter fight on Saturday night, Portland defensive back Quincy Butler unintentionally threw his helmet into the Wells Fargo Center stands and hit an unidentified female spectator. It was unclear whether the woman was injured, though she did leave her seat shortly afterward. Just moments before, Butler tangled up with Soul wide receiver Ryan McDaniel, who was blocking Butler downfield.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tightening up their perimeter defense is one of the 76ers' top goals on their West Coast trip. "Golden State, Phoenix, Portland . . . we are going to have to get better guarding the three," coach Brett Brown said. "And that's a real learning opportunity. " Before Monday's NBA games, the Sixers (4-25) had surrendered the most three-point attempts per game (25.4) in the league. However, they were eighth in three-point percentage defense (33.7), meaning that opponents had missed a lot of shots.

His necktie loosened, 76ers coach Brett Brown took a deep breath Monday night and cracked a slight smile. Brown's team had just hung with Portland, one of the league's best teams. The Sixers stayed competitive even though they didn't hit a single three-pointer and grabbed just seven offensive rebounds. It was their 14th straight defeat. One more and the Sixers will tie the franchise's all-time mark for the longest losing streak to start a season. But Brown said he saw some light.

Nerlens Noel is showing signs that he can be a solid player in the NBA. But the 76ers rookie is likely to have ups and downs for the rest of the season. Noel showed both extremes in the span of 48 hours. On Friday, the 6-foot-11, 217-pounder was relegated to bystander status in a home loss to Phoenix. He made his lone shot and scored all three of his points early in the first quarter before disappearing for the rest of the game. Then on Saturday, the rookie remained active and finished with career highs of 17 points and 12 rebounds in a 91-83 loss to the Knicks.

THESE DAYS in America you can do all sorts of things legally, if you don't mind leaving home. For example, if you want to cavort with prostitutes, we have a state for that. If you want to smoke marijuana, we have two states for that, Colorado and Washington, and may soon have more. And if you are gay and happen to live in a state that still has laws against same-sex marriage, you can travel with your beloved to one of 32 states that now permit same-sex ceremonies. But, if you are afflicted with a terminal illness that entails the near-certainty of a lingering, painful death, your options are much more limited.

JACK RAMSAY was a member of the 76ers' family for 6 years. In his first 2 years with the club, he served as general manager and the team won the NBA championship in his first year. After coach Alex Hannum left for greener pastures, Ramsay wore two hats for another 2 years, serving as head coach and general manager, before just coaching his last 2 years before bolting for Buffalo in 1972. Throughout his time with the Sixers, Irv Kosloff was the team's owner. They formed a bond.
