LAKELAND, Fla. - There were times over the last four seasons, Cedric Hunter said, when he questioned his future in baseball. Hunter spent the last four seasons in minor-league outposts such as Columbus, Memphis and Akron. Chances appeared bleak that his major-league career would extend past the six at-bats he had in 2011. He wondered if the game was passing him by. "As players, we all go through that stage," Hunter said. "And I felt like I needed to go through that to bounce back and motivate myself to get here.

IT IS SAID that if this rebuild is going to work, the 76ers must get a superstar. Or two. Or three. They've put themselves in a pretty good position to fill those holes via the draft. Perhaps one is Joel Embiid. Maybe Jahlil Okafor. Possibly June's draft yields a Ben Simmons, and he goes on to stardom as a 6-10 point guard. And maybe they find a legitimate scorer in free agency, and good luck on a trade. But if the NBA, and all of professional sports, teaches us anything, it is that nothing is guaranteed.

HERE ARE a couple of examples of the daily emails I get regarding the Sixers: * "When is the organization going to fire Brett Brown? The man probably has the worst record in pro sports history over a three-year period. His substitutions are baffling, his play-calling head-scratching and his defense is awful. And while they're at it, get rid of Sam Hinkie, too. " On the other end of the spectrum there is this: * "When is management going to give Brett Brown a true NBA roster to work with?

THE EAGLES, who underwent a significant roster purge a year ago, quickly followed by a free agent binge, are at it again, under new management. How many purges and binges and binges and purges before the roster develops serious body-image issues? Across the land, Eagles fans are ecstatic, because the most disappointing figures from last season's train wreck will officially be gone when the league year starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday - DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso, in trades with the Titans and the Dolphins.

GOALKEEPERS (3) Andre Blake (6-foot-1, 170 pounds, age 25) After appearing in just seven games over his first two seasons, this former overall No. 1 MLS SuperDraft selection from Connecticut is ready to assume the starting role. Also a member of the Jamaican national team, he is as athletic as any keeper in MLS. Matt Jones (6-3, 180, 29) The Union acquired the English-born keeper via loan from Belenenses of Portugal's Primeira Liga. He was on loan last year to C.D. Tondela, also in Portugal's top division.

There is no question a new vibe surrounds the Union as they enter their seventh Major League Soccer season. That's good news to the loyal fans since the old vibe had gotten stale. The last two years have featured consecutive trips to (and losses in) the U.S. Open Cup final. But the deep runs in those tournaments couldn't mask the disappointment during the MLS seasons, especially last year. The Union, who open on Sunday at F.C. Dallas, have qualified for the postseason just once, and that came in their second season, 2011.

WASHINGTON - The 76ers have a huge void at the shooting guard and small forward positions. Brett Brown was asked Monday if he wants to use to the extra roster spot to address that need. The Sixers have had 14 players on their roster since they waived shooting guard/small forward JaKarr Sampson on Feb. 18. The maximum number of players on an NBA roster is 15. "That's been discussed for a while," the coach said before the game against the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - This edition of spring training, the 70th consecutive held here by the Phillies, will be a time for prospect gazing. On a practical level, however, the Phillies have no more arduous task over the next six weeks than to build something that resembles a major-league bullpen. There are 23 relievers in camp, which begins Wednesday when pitchers and catchers are required to report at Bright House Field. None of those relievers are locked into a specific job. It is a unit that could be among the worst in the franchise's history.

40-MAN ROSTER Pitchers Elvis Araujo LHP The rookie pitched his best after the all-star break until a groin injury prematurely ended his season. Alec Asher RHP He is the sort of pitcher who will become familiar with the roads between Philadelphia and Allentown. David Buchanan RHP A 2.01 ERA in his final four starts could not mask the gore. Buchanan's 6.99 ERA was the highest for a Phillies pitcher with at least 15 starts since 1930. Jimmy Cordero RHP He is mentioned as a potential future closer because he throws 100 mph, but the strikeout-to-walk ratio must improve.
