LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Chace Numata rose from his crouch and approached the mound at FirstEnergy Park. There is little a 21-year-old catcher can say to one of the best pitchers of this generation, yet Numata tried. He patted Roy Halladay on the lower back. Halladay threw eight straight balls in the fourth inning of a dull rehab start with single-A Lakewood. He resembled the drained pitcher seen earlier in 2013, before a surgeon cut into his right shoulder. That was three months ago. Halladay could not command his arsenal.

Phillies righthander Curt Schilling pitched five shutout innings yesterday at Jack Murphy Stadium. The fact that the stands were empty, of course, means little here. But the fact the batting cage was up and the lineup Schilling faced consisted solely of Randy Ready and Tony Longmire confirmed that, yes, it was only a simulated game. Only a simulated game. And, in its own way, the biggest game Schilling had pitched since his electrifying performance in Game 5 of the 1993 World Series.

Phillies righthander Vicente Padilla had been scheduled to return to the Phillies rotation on Friday in Boston. If everything went well last night in Moosic, Pa., that is. It appears it didn't. Padilla, who has been on the disabled list since May 30 with tendinitis in his right biceps, made a rehab start for triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but left the game after just 33 pitches with elbow soreness. He will be evaluated today. There was no other information available, and it was not clear how the soreness might affect his return.

Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley said critics of his summer work ethic are off base and there is no reason for him to apologize for having some fun while spending the offseason in Philadelphia. Barkley, who thought about retiring all of last season because of chronic back trouble, said he worked hard in the offseason, but also had some fun. "I didn't neglect my rehab," Barkley said yesterday. "I told them I was going to Philadelphia and do it, and that was the final decision.

At first it seemed like a great way to promote low- and moderate-income housing: Float millions of dollars in bonds, use the money to make low-interest loans to small private developers and community non-profit groups, then make sure they keep the rents low, from $250 to $350 for a two-bedroom apartment. The goal: to rehab 1,000 properties of one to four units within three years. But 14 months later the official in charge of the Redevelopment Authority's $35 million Small Rental Properties Program admits, "I had no idea it was so complicated.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Joined by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats at the opening of a drug rehabilitation center here, Gov. Christie continued Monday to advocate for treating nonviolent offenders instead of jailing them, saying that changing attitudes on the topic will require political courage. To break a cycle of recidivism for inmates who do not receive treatment, leaders must articulate the problem, Christie said: "We don't have enough people saying it. " While he said some may worry about being seen as soft on crime for endorsing alternatives to incarceration, the Republican governor, a former federal prosecutor, said the approach he advocates isn't lax. "What it does is make you smart about how to deal with the crime issues we have in our country," he said.

Three of the foremost experts on pitchers' arms have examined Cliff Lee's injured left elbow in recent weeks. They all agreed that Lee, who visited Philadelphia on Monday for another doctor's appointment, can follow his original rehab plan. So Lee will not throw until sometime in November. Nevertheless, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. categorized his confidence in Lee's ability to contribute in 2015 as "high. " Skepticism will linger until Lee demonstrates his health next spring.

In midst of the Phillies' struggles, centerfielder Ben Revere finds himself in the race for the National League batting crown. Revere was batting .315 after Monday's game, second in the National League to Colorado's Justin Morneau at .323. Revere insists he isn't consumed with the idea of being in a batting race. "Honestly, I don't pay much attention," he said before the game. "As long as I can help the team win, that is the main thing.

ALLENTOWN - Like the Phillies, Freddy Galvis has had a rough year. The 24-year-old infielder found misfortune even before the season started, and it has not gotten much better since. In late March, Glavis contracted MRSA, a staph infection that can easily lead to other infections, and had to be hospitalized. The Phillies made the decision that he would start the season on the disabled list, putting him behind right from the get-go. "It was really tough because I didn't get to do a spring training," Galvis said.

I VOLUNTEER at a correctional institution for women. During one financial-literacy class, I was struck by something that was disturbing two inmates who were scheduled to be released within the next two years. They were worried about defaulted student loans. Once out of prison, they feared that if they found a job, debt collectors would come after their paychecks. They were concerned that late fees, additional interest and other collection costs would make it impossible for them to get out of default.

ATLANTA - The prize of the pitching market this July, David Price, plays for a team enjoying its best run of the season. There are no guarantees that Tampa Bay will deal Price, and that steers all focus toward Cliff Lee. He will pitch Monday for the first time in two months. More than a dozen scouts are expected at Citizens Bank Park to evaluate how Lee has handled a strained left elbow. Lee will start two games before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. His performances will dictate whether that is enough to entice a contender to offer a suitable package.

With a hoist and a sudden mechanical groan, Dan Webb, 44, stands up in the rehabilitation gym at MossRehab in Elkins Park, grinning from ear to ear. You might say standing is not such a big deal, unless, like Webb, who fell from a tree stand while bowhunting in 2010 and suffered incomplete paralysis of the lower half of his body, you've spent a year of your life in a wheelchair. In his case, it's a very big deal indeed. And Webb, of Warminster - who has been working with exoskeleton technology for two years at MossRehab - can do more than stand.
