Mike Adams underwent three surgeries since he last pitched on three consecutive days. That was August 2012, before surgery to remove a rib that corrected thoracic outlet syndrome, before multiple tears in his right shoulder were repaired, and before surgery for a sports hernia. That is why Ryne Sandberg made an interesting observation about his 35-year-old righthanded reliever. "He seems to be more effective when pitching more often," Sandberg said. So the Phillies manager entrusted Adams with another tight eighth-inning situation in Sunday's 1-0 win. Adams retired Jayson Werth on a weak grounder to first base.

An estimated 70 percent of U.S. households live paycheck-to-paycheck, but that doesn't mean they can't save for retirement. That's the argument of David Laibson, a Harvard University economics professor who was at a Pension Research Council conference Thursday at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The trick is to enroll workers automatically in retirement-savings plans. "When you auto-enroll, they stick with it," Laibson, who studies behavioral economics, said during a break at the conference, which continues through noon Friday.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens looked back at his career and forward toward changes he would like to see made in the Constitution during an hour-long talk Monday at the National Constitution Center. Stevens, 94, who became a liberal pillar on the court, had high praise for Justice Sonia Sotomayor's dissent on the recent decision upholding a voter-enacted law in Michigan law barring the use of affirmative-action policies in state schools. He argued that such policies might gain more popular support if political leaders explained that they were needed to create a more cohesive society.
