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.

Mike Grace ranked among the National League leaders in wins, winning percentage and opponents' batting average against when he was placed on the disabled list with shoulder problems on June 7 last year. Based on the way he pitched in his first rehab start for Double A Reading against Trenton last night, there is a chance he could be activated before the first anniversary of that dark day a week from Saturday. Grace, who was on a pitch count, went four innings and threw 58 pitches, 33 for strikes.

Ken Weinstein wasn't sure how well the idea of gathering and training a force of residential developers to recycle housing in Germantown would play to the neighborhood. Nor was the developer certain that he could interest enough people in his idea, which included a revolving loan fund of $2 million to get Jumpstart Germantown off the ground. Since he announced his plan in March, Weinstein has taken 108 "mentoring" applications from experienced and would-be developers around the area, and 75 of them have completed nine-plus hours of training with experts in the field.

The player they call Ghost became more interested in hockey because, as a kid, he used to tag along to figure-skating practices attended by his big sister, Felicia Gostisbehere. That same big sister - a one-time Olympic hopeful whose promising skating career was cut short because of hip surgery - is a major reason Shayne Gostisbehere had such a smooth recovery from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. "Her dreams were cut short," said Shayne Gostisbhere, the swift-skating, unassuming Flyers rookie defenseman who has taken the NHL by storm, "but she helped push me toward mine.

A thousand years ago, 1978 to be exact, I traded a suburban apartment complex we called "Plywood Village" for a first-floor apartment in a rehabbed 19th-century hotel in Hartford, Conn., a few blocks from the state Capitol. I'm not sure who had been living in the Hotel Capitol before the rehab, but they likely were not well-to-do. I later completed a demographic study of the building on the way to a doctorate in history I was working toward but didn't finish because I moved to Philadelphia.

THERE WAS a somewhat familiar figure roaming around the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday. When someone is 7 feet, 3 inches tall, you always give a double-take, and this time, it was because of Zydrunas Ilgauskas. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star was a guest of the 76ers, and for quite good reason. Ilgauskas was saddled early in his career with fractures to the navicular bone in his foot. It is the same injury Sixers center Joel Embiid is dealing with, following his second surgery, which will cause him to miss his second straight season.

WHEN AN NBA player gets word that he is being sent to the Development League, the news isn't usually greeted with the reaction both Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall had Wednesday, when they were informed they would spend time with the Delaware 87ers. For the two veteran guards, it means they are getting closer to full recoveries from the torn ACLs both suffered in January. The 76ers announced before their game against the Toronto Raptors that the two had been assigned to Delaware to continue their rehab.

A second South Jersey community is balking at plans by real estate developer J. Brian O'Neill to locate a drug and alcohol treatment center in its midst. Unlike in Haddonfield, his dispute with Gloucester Township has landed in court. O'Neill wants to establish a Recovery Centers of America facility in Gloucester Township near the Blackwood campus of Camden County College. The township recently rejected O'Neill's proposal for a 37-bed residential treatment facility on Peter Cheeseman Road, saying the property is not zoned for a drug center.

SAM BRADFORD is less than two weeks away from playing in his first NFL regular-season game in nearly two years. I was curious what he is feeling right now as he tries to move on from back-to-back ACL tears and the back-to-back rehabs that accompanied them. Excitement? Relief? Worry? Cautious optimism? "It's nothing but excitement for me," Bradford said yesterday. "I've been excited this whole preseason. Excited just to get back on the field. I was excited for Baltimore and I was even more excited to be out there for Green Bay for three series.

No word on what precise malady or addiction he seeks to address. "[Josh] has . . . brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear," Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say. "Josh [has] checked himself in to a long-term treatment center. For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery.

NEITHER BILL DAVIS nor DeMeco Ryans can guarantee that Ryans and his repaired Achilles' tendon will be 100 percent by the time the Eagles open their season Sept. 14 in Atlanta. Davis, the Eagles' defensive coordinator, didn't say so, but this uncertainty might have played at least a small part in the team's decision to sign Ryans' inside-linebacking understudy, Mychal Kendricks, to a four-year, $29 million contract extension on Monday. "You know, I don't know. Those are tough injuries to get 100 percent," Davis said yesterday, when asked about Ryans' timetable.

Now that Joel Embiid has had surgery, the 76ers will try to find different ways to rehabilitate his right foot, general manager Sam Hinkie said Wednesday. Five doctors were involved Tuesday in bone-graft surgery to repair the navicular bone in Embiid's foot. The recovery time for the 7-foot center is five to eight months. But Hinkie confirmed Embiid would miss the entire season. "One of the things that we have in our favor is that we have a new set of people that we can throw at this problem and they can be involved," Hinkie said.
