CLEARWATER, Fla. - As the sterling major-league career of Roy Halladay concluded in September, Ethan Martin's entered its nascent stages. The 24-year-old righthander bounced between the rotation and bullpen, pitched to a 6.08 ERA on a moribund team, and endured difficult baseball lessons. One of his first realizations was to steer clear of Halladay. Do not engage Halladay unless he initiates it. Halladay was not rude; he just channeled all of his energy toward his next start. Halladay's failing right shoulder and back robbed him of another season.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Earlier this week, a potentially awkward moment unfolded in the corner of the Bright House Field locker room that is home to an assortment of minor leaguers, most of whom will depart camp well before the Phillies head north for the season. One of those players, a 23-year-old outfielder named Zach Collier, was approaching his locker after that day's workout when he noticed a stranger sitting in his chair. Collier hesitated, as if contemplating how to proceed.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay is no longer walking around with the laser-like focus of a finely tuned professional athlete set on beating everyone to the ballpark each morning for a meticulously planned and regimented workout. He's sleeping more. He's coaching his two sons' baseball and basketball teams. Halladay, the former Phillies ace who retired 2 months ago, said he probably lost 10 pounds this winter. "The weight training is different," Halladay said with a laugh yesterday.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Roy Halladay pulled a chair to the corner of the Phillies clubhouse reserved for players with jersey numbers in the 60s or 70s - the veterans hanging onto major-league hopes and the prospects experiencing their first taste of the life. Halladay wanted to see No. 70. Jesse Biddle, 22 and lifelong Phillies fan, listened while the rest of the room emptied for the day. "There are a lot of things you want to learn from a guy like that," Biddle said. "He's a Hall of Famer.

Boy, the way the Phillies played. Their lineup was a hit parade. The bullpen really had it made. Those were the days. CLEARWATER, Fla. - It was three long years ago that the Phillies opened spring training by trotting out their entire starting rotation, declaring that each and every one of the pitchers was good enough to be the opening-day starter. Joe Blanton was not, of course, but nobody in the organization wanted to hurt his feelings, so he, too, was invited to the crowded news conference, along with the well-decorated quartet of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, and Roy Oswalt.

IT SEEMS eons ago, but just two full autumns have passed since Ryan Howard crumpled to the ground on his way to the last out of what was, statistically at least, the best season of a 5-year string of division titles. So much has changed since that 102-win season. So many have gone. And one player, the one who sat so dejectedly at his locker that night, has, for much of the time since, disappeared. The Phillies started 45-year-old Jamie Moyer in the World Series they won, and couldn't get past the first round despite the healthy arms of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt in 2011.

A DAY BEFORE the process that would involve publicly exchanging numbers, Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies avoided arbitration altogether by coming to terms on a 1-year, $7.675 million deal last night. The contract includes award bonuses. Kendrick, 29, who can become a free agent after the 2014 season, was 10-13 with a 4.70 ERA in 30 starts in 2013. "I'm glad we got something worked out," said Kendrick, who already has begun working out regularly at the Phillies' facilities in Clearwater, Fla. "I'm looking forward to getting the season underway.

Roy Halladay got 16 years of relative fame from a career in major-league baseball, but when it came time to reflect and say farewell to a professional life that spanned nearly half his time on earth, Halladay was accorded just a half-hour before being preempted. That's no knock on either Comcast SportsNet or the MLB Network, both of which cut away from Halladay's retirement news conference on Monday; Comcast to bring you Chip Kelly quoting Winston Churchill and the MLB Network to continue talking about whatever it is they talk about there between November and February.
