Lefthander Jesse Biddle said he finally felt like his old self on the mound Wednesday, and the results backed him up. Biddle, the Phillies' first-round draft choice (27th overall) in 2010 from Germantown Friends, made a breakthrough start for high-A Clearwater. It was just his second appearance since June 23, when he was shut down for a "mental break. " He threw five no-hit innings for the Clearwater Threshers in a 4-0 win over the Daytona Cubs. "It was a good start, and I am excited," Biddle said by phone Friday.

DURING SPRING training, Roy Halladay regularly reported to work at Bright House Field hours before the sun rose each morning. The dedication to his craft continued into the season. He was meticulous in his routine. Almost every minute of his day was accounted for and had a purpose. Step in his direction when he was making his way from a bullpen session to the weight room and you'd see the steely look of a guy you really didn't care to interrupt. But then one day in Clearwater, a video-game commercial featuring the pitcher and a Carlos Ruiz pillow began airing regularly.

Roy Halladay went to a baseball game March 31 with his son. He wore a hat to Tropicana Field in Tampa, Fla., watched one of his former teams play, and that is how the first Major League Baseball season in 17 years without him commenced. A few fans there noticed Halladay, one of this generation's greatest pitchers, forced into early retirement by a bad shoulder. He managed to conceal his presence. "You don't tweet you are going to the game," said Halladay, a social-media star who ditched his stoic persona once he stopped playing.

AMONG THE never-ending games of what-if played repeatedly over the last few summers here, the what-if-Pat-Gillick had stayed game probably does not get enough plays. At the very least, it is far less popular than the what-if-they-had-picked-Mike-Arbuckle-as-GM game. And yet there is far more evidence to make the case that things would have been different if Pat remained general manager than if Mike was made one, evidence supplied in his previous stops in Toronto, Baltimore and Seattle.

TORONTO - Four and a half years ago, the Toronto Blue Jays had an opportunity to reshape their franchise with one move. They had Roy Halladay, arguably the best pitcher in baseball, as a trade chip. On Dec. 16, 2009, Toronto sent Halladay to the Phillies for three prospects: pitcher Kyle Drabek, catcher Travis d'Arnaud and outfielder Michael Taylor. On the surface, it looks as if that trade worked out about as well for Toronto as a second trade the Phillies made that day: Cliff Lee to Seattle for three prospects, none of whom is in the major leagues (or appears close to getting to the majors in 2014)

The penultimate pitch Cliff Lee threw in Arlington, Texas, was an 86-m.p.h. cutter that did not cut. It floated into Edgar Renteria's swing, and Lee slammed his left fist into his glove. He knew. The ball landed just beyond the left-field wall for a three-run homer in Game 5 of the 2010 World Series. For the second consecutive season, Lee failed to secure a World Series ring. That was a Monday four Novembers ago, the last time Lee threw in the ballpark where he will begin 2014, a season that promises professional and personal drama for the lefthander.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - After finding a seat on top of a picnic table outside the Phillies clubhouse at Bright House Field yesterday morning, Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt quickly repositioned himself. He said something about trying to avoid the sun. In the 20 minutes that followed, Schmidt explained why he was wary of the sun and why he was unable to perform his regular duties as an on-field guest instructor this spring training, too. Schmidt, 64, was diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma in August and underwent two surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the months that followed.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Justin Upton popped a David Buchanan sinker into the sky, and the 24-year-old Phillies righthander shouted as he descended the Champion Stadium mound. Shortstop Freddy Galvis captured the lazy fly ball. Buchanan, an improbable entrant in the fifth-starter competition this spring, completed three scoreless innings Tuesday against a stacked Braves lineup. He was disappointed. "You never like falling behind [the hitters] because you never want to get hurt," Buchanan said.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - David Buchanan was one of the final players added to the Phillies' spring-training roster this winter. Two months later, the 24-year-old righthander is competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, at least until lefthander Cole Hamels is healthy and strong enough to pitch again. Buchanan helped himself yesterday afternoon, blanking the Braves for three innings in the Phillies' 9-1 loss. Facing most of Atlanta's regular lineup - B.J. Upton was the only name missing - Buchanan limited Atlanta to a hit and a walk.
