CLEARWATER, Fla. - For the third straight offseason, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. revealed his infatuation with pitching by acquiring the best available arm. That's what Amaro did when he pulled off a three-team trade that brought the Phillies Roy Halladay from Toronto after the 2009 season. And that's what he did again when he brought back Cliff Lee as a free agent in December 2010. Those moves were cause for much celebration. In fact, the news that Lee was returning to the Phillies nearly forced Mayor Nutter to come up with a parade route through Center City.

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.

THE PHILLIES will return seven of eight position players - once Ryan Howard recovers - and four of their five starters from last season. But that does not mean the team has not undergone important changes this offseason - the bench and the bullpen have been substantially overhauled. Beginning today, the Daily News will provide snapshots of the key Phillies newcomers as the days until spring training continue to dwindle.. The Phillies also have a large pool of players invited to spring training but not on the 40-man roster who could win jobs - outfielder Juan Pierre and righthander Joel Pineiro among them.

CHRISTINE Flowers: Your column about Joe Paterno said it all perfectly. I heard on the news that they immortalized Michael Jackson at Grauman's Chinese Theater, in Hollywood. His kids were there pushing their hands into the cement. Jackson was accused of many awful things over the years, just because he was different, but he was so big that it didn't matter, and he was never convicted of any of it. The people who loved and cherished him won't let media or anything else get in the way of what is rightfully due him. Joe Paterno was wrongfully accused of something that was not even proven yet. All hearsay.

THE SEA CHANGE is complete. The Phillies may not use the words "all in" the way another organization infamously did, but moves this offseason, combined with those made over the previous 12 months, suggest the days of protecting their future are officially over. No more talk of restocking from within. Ryan Madson was replaced by Jonathan Papelbon, a closer just as old. Freddy Galvis' path to the major leagues is still blocked after Jimmy Rollins was re-upped. Jim Thome and Laynce Nix will probably preclude any prospect from hitting his way onto the team this spring.

Here is Rich Hofmann's view on the Ryan Madson signing, posted yesterday on his blog, The Idle Rich, at www.philly.com/theidlerich .   NOBODY WILL need to hold a benefit for Ryan Madson. If reports are accurate, he is in the process of doing a 1-year, $8.5 million deal with the Cincinnati Reds. He is safely in the 1 percent. Again, no tears. But how did this happen? How did he and agent Scott Boras miscalculate the market so badly? I still would love to know how the whole Phillies thing went down.

Forget about the plan to possibly keep Ryan Madson as the Phillies' setup man. Not that there was much of a chance before, and certainly not now, since it appears he will be closing in Cincinnati. But that doesn't mean Phillies fans should expect to see Kerry Wood wearing red pinstripes on the mound at Citizens Bank Park this year. Several reports had the 31-year-old Madson agreeing to terms with the Reds on a one-year deal worth $8.5 million to $10 million. Madson's agent, Scott Boras, was unavailable for comment.

THE PHILLIES WILL receive two draft picks in June's draft for losing reliever Ryan Madson to the Reds, but won't get a first-round pick in return, under terms of baseball's new collective bargaining agreement. The Phillies will get a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds, and the selection before the Reds' second-round pick. Those picks are currently Nos. 38 and No. 72. Madson is part of a special class of five players designated in the new CBA for the interim year before the new system fully goes into effect next offseason.
