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.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The pitch by which he should be remembered was a 78 mph curveball that died in the leftfield corner of Citizens Bank Park on a crisp night in the first week of October. This was the 126th time that Roy Halladay had delivered the ball toward home plate that evening, the 126th time he had glared in at the catcher's mitt, a defiant stare radiating from beneath the bill of his cap, the 126th time that he had channeled every ounce of his energy into desperate attempt to extend his team's season for at least another four games, his deteriorating back laden with the weight of a win-or-go-home Game 5 in the NLDS against the Cardinals.

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.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The night before his father announced his retirement from baseball in a conference room at the Walt Disney Dolphin Hotel, Braden Halladay played a double-elimination tournament Sunday in Tampa. The Dunedin Panthers, a team of 13-year-old boys, were tied in extra innings of the last game. "Don't strike out," Braden told himself. He slapped the pitch over a drawn-in infield for the winning single. Braden tossed his helmet into the sky before he touched first base.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - If the true measure of a man comes from what his friends and co-workers say about him, Roy Halladay is a pretty complete person, let alone baseball player. He is as revered as any athlete to play in Philadelphia in the last quarter century. In the hour or so after Halladay's retirement became official yesterday, an outpouring of support and well wishes found its way to Walt Disney World's Swan and Dolphin Resort, site of baseball's winter meetings, where Halladay said goodbye to the game.
