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.

It's not officially over for Cliff Lee. All he needs is a miracle, and he could be back throwing on a mound near you before the end of the summer. Even he concedes that is unlikely. "It's fairly likely it will remain the same," the Phillies lefthander said Monday at Bright House Field after the team placed him on the 60-day disabled list and announced that he will attempt a third rehab of his aching left elbow. Surgery has been recommended, but that would end Lee's season and tenure with the Phillies.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On each of the last two mornings when Phillies pitchers gathered to play catch, Cliff Lee was absent. The discomfort in his pitching elbow had progressively worsened, so the 36-year-old lefthander weighed his options. Late Monday afternoon, the Phillies announced that Lee will try for a third time to non-surgically rehabilitate the tear in his common flexor tendon. Season-ending surgery, not recommended last summer, was endorsed by doctors after the latest setback.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The latest news on Cliff Lee wasn't really news, in a way, because nothing has been new regarding the lefthander's $120 million arm in the last 10 months. Lee has had a sore elbow since last May, when the pain was enough to cause him trouble when he turned a door knob. He's had a sore elbow since grabbing at it during his last regular-season start in Washington on the last night of July, hours after baseball's trade deadline. He's rested it. He's rehabbed it. Twice.

When developer Ken Weinstein meets with prospective tenants for his commercial buildings, he says, the first question they ask is "about the condition of Germantown," the historic Northwest Philadelphia neighborhood where decades of disinvestment continue to take a toll on housing. Weinstein, whose focus as a commercial redeveloper makes him acutely aware how blighted blocks can affect nearby businesses, said Monday that he was launching "Jumpstart Germantown," an effort to push residential redevelopment "to where it should be. " The plan, expected to get underway in April, is to "unleash a force of small residential developers to renovate properties throughout the neighborhood," he said.

At one of the six baskets ringing the court at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Joel Embiid rolled through a succession of post moves with assistant coach Billy Lange. There was Embiid, spinning left to set up a baseline fadeaway. There was Embiid, pivoting right for a short hook shot. There was Embiid, nimble and fluid and on the move within full view of a contingent of media members standing a few feet away.

Passengers at five busy transit stations will face detours when the Gallery shopping center in Center City closes for renovations. But frustrated officials at SEPTA and PATCO can't alert riders to coming changes, because, they say, they've been unable to get information from Gallery manager Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT). "We really don't know anything," said PATCO spokeswoman Fran O'Brien, who said PREIT officials had said only that they were in the process of finalizing development plans.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. Falls Township, Bucks County, may not be that well-known throughout the far-flung Philadelphia region. But its Fairless Hills and Levittown sections certainly are. The township came first, back in the early days of European settlement, and it was here that William Penn built Pennsbury Manor, which he occupied from 1683 to 1701. The village of Fallsington is here, too, with its "wonderful, old historic houses," as Martin Millner, of Coldwell Banker Hearthside in Yardley, describes them.

In a bedroom lay a white silk pillow - yellowed with age and emblazoned with the screaming eagle emblem of the Army's 101st Airborne Division. On the walls were pictures and plaques telling the story of a World War II veteran; in another room was an adjustable hospital bed and, on a windowsill, a worn Bible. That October day, Jim Bennett was looking for an investment, a house to buy, rehab, then rent or resell, as he has done with about 500 others over more than 20 years. But Bennett found much more at the two-story rowhouse on Winton Street in South Philadelphia.
