CLEARWATER, Fla. - We made our first attempt at projecting the Phillies' 25-man Opening Day roster a little more than 2 weeks ago. The most significant development that has occurred since then is the lack of significant developments, specifically with regard to injury. Last year at this time, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jose Contreras were headed toward season-opening disabled-list spots. In 2011, the health of Utley and Brad Lidge dominated the news cycle. This year, spring training has been light on the kind of drama that can diminish a team's chances before the season even starts.

With just hours to go before Major League Soccer's roster compliance deadline, the Union made two significant moves. Forward Chandler Hoffman, the team's first-round draft pick in 2012, is headed to the Los Angeles Galaxy in exchange for a conditional SuperDraft pick in 2014. Later Friday, the Union released third-string goalkeeper Chase Harrison. The team opens its season Saturday as it hosts Sporting Kansas City at PPL Park. "Chandler and I had an honest conversation about where he stood and we decided that this trade gives him an opportunity that he would not have had within our team this season," Union manager John Hackworth said in a statement issued by the team.

It appears this much is clear when it comes to the 76ers: The new ownership, led by Josh Harris, is willing to do pretty much anything it can to make this organization relevant again. It proved as much when, after the team tickled the fans' fancy with a two-round playoff run last season, the front office blew up the roster and landed a prized possession in Andrew Bynum. The claim was that the move was done because the roster that took them to a Game 7 against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals had maxed out. It was a gutsy move, but one that proved to the city that the owners were all in - that winning now was the goal and that taking risks wasn't going to be something that restrained their decision-making.

The Eagles announced Chip Kelly's coaching staff Friday, all at once, as they'd said they would do. Twenty-one names are on the list, including that of Shaun Huls, the "sports science coordinator," which sounds a little BALCOesque, but Huls' bio says he comes to the Eagles from a position as strength and conditioning and combatives coordinator for Navy Special Warfare. So, if hand-to-hand fighting breaks out in the middle of the third quarter, the Eagles presumably will be covered. Five members of the new staff are following Kelly from the University of Oregon.

THE EAGLES have been slow to join the 3-4 defense party, but it sounds as if they are headed that way under new coach Chip Kelly. As everything continues to remain a state secret, we are only going to find out when we find out. But with more and more teams headed that way, there seems to be an unstated-but-growing consensus in the NFL that the 3-4 gives you more options against the variety of wide-open offensive attacks that are now the standard....

The 76ers' steadily worsening record was not enough to prevent fourth-year guard Jrue Holiday from being named by coaches as one of the seven Eastern Conference reserves for the NBA All-Star Game next month in Houston. Holiday became the second Sixer in the last two years to make the all-star team. Andre Iguodala, traded to the Denver Nuggets over the summer, was a reserve last season, when he became the first Sixer since Allen Iverson in 2006 to make the team. "On behalf of our entire organization, I would like to congratulate Jrue Holiday on being named a member of the 2013 NBA Eastern Conference All-Star team," Sixers managing owner Josh Harris said.

The Philadelphia Wings head into the 2013 season with newly acquired transition player Paul Rabil, who is widely considered to be the best lacrosse player in the world. He was traded from the Rochester Knighthawks as part of a blockbuster six-player trade that sent Wings forward Dan Dawson and defenseman Paul Dawson to the Knighthawks. The team finalized its 23-man roster Thursday. Top returnees from last season include NLL all-stars Brodie Merrill and Max Seibald and NLL rookie of the year runner-up, Kevin Crowley.
