Ryan Howard recently fired agent Larry Reynolds, but it remains unclear who his next agent will be. The buzz in baseball Saturday had Howard strongly leaning toward Leon Rose, the agent who represents former 76ers guard Allen Iverson, LeBron James and other basketball stars. That buzz continued yesterday, with another baseball source saying Rose would be pairing with Howard. But Rose, who would be representing a baseball player for the first time, said yesterday that he hadn't spoken with Howard.

In an expected move, the Phillies have declined their $4.5 million option on J.C. Romero's contract, making the veteran lefthander a free agent. Romero, who will be paid a $250,000 buyout, logged only 53 1/3 innings over the last two seasons after posting a 2.75 ERA in 59 innings in 2008. "No clue," the 34-year-old said Saturday night when asked of his chances of returning. "I'm blank right now. Don't know what's going to happen. " Romero said he thinks he has many years remaining in baseball.

The Phillies moved closer to clinching their fifth consecutive National League East championship by defeating the Florida Marlins, 3-1, this afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies' magic number for clinching the NL East is 3. The Phillies have now won 96 games. Kyle Kendrick took a no-hitter into the fifth in his first start in 22 days. He pitched five effective innings, allowing one run on two hits, but had to come out, given the time between starts. He struck out six and did not allow a walk.

On a night when manager Charlie Manuel planned to send Brad Lidge in for the save, the importance of getting the Phillies' star closer back on track might have increased dramatically. Righthander Chan Ho Park suffered a hamstring injury on his final pitch of the seventh inning, and the immediate prognosis is, at best, a concern. Park, who is 2-2 with a 2.57 ERA since joining the bullpen in mid-May, said he felt his right hamstring "pop" on the play. Manuel indicated that the veteran righthander could be sidelined for a significant stretch of time.

WHAT WE KNOW: Charlie Manuel and Rich Dubee will have plenty more options than they did for most of last season, when young relievers Antonio Bastardo and Michael Stutes were forced into the fire after injuries struck Jose Contreras, Brad Lidge and, for a stretch, Ryan Madson. The ninth inning wasn't a problem last year, and it shouldn't be one this year with Jonathan Papelbon replacing Madson. The 31-year-old former Red Sox closer relies primarily on a wicked fastball, occasionally offset by a splitter.
