Charlie Manuel said two months ago that he'd probably be back with the Phillies before the start of spring training after being fired as the team's manager in August. Now, it appears it will soon become official. WPEN-FM (97.5) reported Wednesday that Manuel has accepted an invitation to rejoin the team. Citing a source, CSNPhilly.com said that the winningest manager in club history would be a senior adviser to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. That report said Manuel would work with minor-league hitters, evaluate minor-league players, and handle some scouting assignments.

Mayor Nutter yesterday appointed one of his top Cabinet members, senior adviser Terry Gillen, to head the Redevelopment Authority. He also placed himself on the board of the RDA, which works to revive blighted areas. Nutter's announcement came days after city officials said accounting problems at the RDA may have contributed to a multimillion funding gap for property acquisitions that were part of former Mayor Street's Neighborhood Transformation Initiative. Last week, the city said that anti-blight program NTI may be up to $30 million short for planned property acquisitions.

Jimmy Rollins predicts the Phillies can win 100 games this season. The franchise record of 101 was set in back-to-back years in 1976 and '77 under Danny Ozark. There also is the city record, held by the 1931 Philadelphia Athletics, who went 107-45. And senior adviser Pat Gillick says this team "on paper" is better than the 2001 Seattle Mariners, who won 116 games. Gillick was the Mariners' GM at the time. For those who get paid to prognosticate, or at least entice you to make a wager, the expectations are apparent, too. Website BetUs.

WASHINGTON - The White House on Sunday warned Republicans that a "my way or the highway" approach would spell the GOP's defeat in the budget negotiations and told its Democratic allies that they, too, will have to bend on President Obama's delayed spending plan, set to be released this week. White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said the White House was willing to work with rank-and-file Republicans to come up with an outline that both jump-starts the economy and reduces the nation's red ink. Yet Pfeiffer also told the GOP that stubbornness among their party's leadership would only yield public embarrassment of the sort the GOP faced last year when voters rejected Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's economic proposals and gave Obama a second term.

In a statement released this week, the Inspector General's Office said Michael P. Kelly did not misuse agency funds on gifts or unfairly promote Audrey Lim, a former member of his senior staff.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman secured unanimous ownership support for the pending labor deal, then apologized to everyone hurt by the long lockout and said he isn't going anywhere. The league's board of governors met in a Manhattan hotel Wednesday and overwhelmingly approved the agreement that was reached early Sunday on the 113th day of the lockout. Bettman felt the full brunt of anger, especially from fans, during the four-month dispute that kept hockey off the ice. But he was contrite in announcing the latest step by the owners.

PHOENIX - Officials in Phoenix and a developer who was poised to demolish a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home have reached an agreement that will put any work on hold while a search continues for a buyer, a city official confirmed Wednesday. The agreement with the developers who bought the 1952 home delays for nearly a month any demolition, said Brendan Mahoney, a senior adviser for Mayor Greg Stanton. The deal allows time for a potential sale to buyers who will preserve the 2,500-square-foot house, and also protects the developers, who contend they were issued a valid demolition permit that the city said was issued in error.

NORFOLK, Va. - After Mitt Romney decided on a running mate, Paul Ryan's carefully planned transition from congressman to vice presidential candidate began - in deep secret. Almost a week ago, Ryan was sneaking through Chicago's O'Hare airport in a baseball cap and sunglasses and flew to New England. A Romney adviser's 19-year-old son picked up Ryan and drove him to a private meeting in his parents' dining room where the deal was sealed. By Friday afternoon, Ryan was cutting through the Wisconsin woods behind his home to evade a reporter on the street out front, and heading to North Carolina.

DEANS, FACULTY, STAFF, parents and graduates: It is my honor to address the 666th graduating class of the School of Hard Knocks.   Graduates, you have labored hard to achieve your dream. The sheepskin (kind of awful, when you think about it) proves you have survived four years of rigorous academic challenges and intense games of beer pong to earn your degree, which you have been told is the key to employment and a bright future. That's the story you have heard, and for some of you it will be true, but not for all — not as long as the Philadelphia Housing Authority is hiring.
