CHICAGO - Two former stars took center stage on Friday afternoon at the National League's oldest ballpark. Ryne Sandberg, the Phillies interim manager who spent most of his Hall of Fame career thrilling the masses at Wrigley Field, returned home and received the red-carpet treatment seldom afforded an opposing figure here. Most in the crowd stood and applauded as Sandberg, in a road gray Phillies uniform with that familiar No. 23, emerged from the visiting dugout to exchange his lineup card at home plate.

TWENTY-FOUR hours after sitting in front of television cameras to talk about an elbow injury that would shut him down for the remainder of the season, and one that could put 2014 in jeopardy, too, New York Mets rookie Matt Harvey sent out a curious tweet. "Thank you everyone for the kind words and support," Harvey wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday. "I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1. " Where did the optimistic turn come from? Harvey, who has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, had a talk with Doc. Not a physician or surgeon experienced in arm injuries, but Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay.

ROY HALLADAY'S second major league start 3 months after shoulder surgery is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon against the Cubs. Once again he will have the slight advantage of facing a watered down major league lineup. But If he exhibits the same control of his pitches as he did in Sunday afternoon's start against Arizona, he is again likely to post encouraging numbers and fuel what is shaping up as a lively civic debate: Should the Phillies try to re-sign the man who gave them a discount during his peak years?

A LITTLE BIT of run support was all the Doc had ordered. Roy Halladay returned to a big-league mound a bit earlier than expected as he joined the Phillies following a historic 18-inning loss Saturday night in which yesterday's scheduled starter was used in relief. Halladay had been scheduled to make a rehab start yesterday at Double A Reading. The two-time Cy Young Award winner outpitched Arizona ace lefthander Patrick Corbin in the Phillies' 9-5 victory yesterday afternoon. Halladay walked off the field after a scoreless sixth inning to his second standing ovation of the afternoon, his pitch count at 94. The 36-year-old's day was done after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs on four hits and two walks, with two strikeouts.

He was not overpowering and needed some great defense, including a home run-saving catch, but overall, Roy Halladay made a successful return to a major-league mound on Sunday. Making his first Phillies appearance since May 5, Halladay allowed two runs in six innings during a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park. The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw 94 pitches, 55 for strikes, with a fastball in the high 80s for much of the day. Halladay, who underwent shoulder surgery on May 15, surrendered four hits while striking out two and walking two. "I feel like I am getting stronger and I look forward to continuing to build," said Halladay, 36. Halladay originally was supposed to make his third minor-league rehabilitation start Sunday at Reading.

YOU HOPE he's right. You hope yesterday was the start of an inspiring renaissance for Roy Halladay, that the arm slot in his surgically repaired shoulder allows him to utilize the knowledge and skill that created his Hall of Fame resume more than his fastball ever did. You hope too that he's right about that fastball of his finding the 90s once again, if not by the end of this baseball season, by the start of the next. Ah, but what price do you place on that hope? Do you wish to lace more of the future of the Phillies to that hope, especially after what you saw in yesterday's emergency start?

Centerfielder Roger Bernadina has made a good first impression since the Phillies signed him Wednesday after his release from the Washington Nationals. He hit a solo home run Saturday during an 18-inning loss to Arizona. Bernadina came back Sunday to contribute two sensational catches and a two-run double as the Phillies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-5. In the third inning, he leaped over the wall to rob Matt Davidson of a two-run homer. "For a second, I thought the ball was over my head and thought the ball kind of beat me and I kept going," Bernadina said.

Roy Halladay did not resemble a pitcher ready to retire major-league hitters during his second rehab start Tuesday at single-A Lakewood. With every five days, the chance to make an impression for his next employer - whether it be the Phillies or someone else - dwindles. The Phillies will not rush the recovery from shoulder surgery. They will send Halladay to double-A Reading on Sunday for his third minor-league start. The Phillies have an opening in their rotation Sunday and interim manager Ryne Sandberg said the starter was "undetermined.

A NIGHT AFTER giving his opinion of the Phillies recent managerial change, Roy Halladay spent close to 3 minutes talking about the issue again, in an uninterrupted session inside the dugout before batting practice. He spoke in support of Charlie Manuel, calling him "the best [manager] I've ever been around. " It cost Manuel his job, but the issues that have plagued the underachieving Phillies underneath the surface, beyond the nine innings they play each night on the field, slipped out in Halladay's comments the night before, and a couple of times before that, too, since Ryne Sandberg took over for Manuel last Friday.

If baseballs at Citizens Bank Park had been hit with the same ferocity as the recent comments in circulation, Charlie Manuel still would be in the Phillies dugout and Ryne Sandberg would be coaching third base. Don't be fooled by the laid-back deliveries of the things being said in the wake of Manuel's dismissal from the managing job he held so successfully for nine years. It's like being bitten by a tick. You may not immediately notice, but the pain caused by the words can still be searing.
