In Philadelphia, the team president won't even give a full vote of confidence to the general manager and manager. In Toronto, Blue Jays general manager Gord Ash holds a conference call with his town's reporters, and reads his list of managerial candidates - or at least most of them. The list, which includes Angels coach and former Phil Larry Bowa, is as interesting for who is not on it as for who is. Jim Fregosi is not on it. Neither is perennially overlooked Chris Chambliss.

Lutron Electronics, the Lehigh Valley-based global giant in home lighting controls, Thursday joined the growing ranks of companies whose consumer gear and services "hear" and respond to voice commands dished to Amazon Echo and Fire TV products. Users who pair Lutron's do-it-yourself Caseta wireless lighting control devices with Amazon's Echo smart speaker or Fire TV (streaming video receiver) will be able to orally cue Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa to switch " 'Bedroom lights full on' in the morning or 'Alexa, lower living room lights to 65 percent' for movie viewing at night," said Neil Orchowski, Lutron product development manager for strategic alliances.

The cost of the 35 food items tracked in our monthly Market Basket survey increased 2.4 percent over the last month and 8.88 percent over the year. The current $48.76 Market Basket total cost for those foods is based on the best price (including sales and specials) found among three stores in the area's major chains. Sale prices on cheese, margarine, mayonnaise, coffee, peanut butter, orange juice, tomatoes, sirloin steak and whole chickens helped to balance increases on other products such as canned peaches, dried beans and cereal.

If you're the Green Bay Packers, you just want to hang on to what you have. If you're the Atlanta Falcons, the New York Jets or the New Orleans Saints, you'll take two of everything. If you're the Eagles, you stay up late tonight and place a 12:01 a.m. call to agent Eugene Parker, who represents Packers free-agent defensive tackle Gilbert Brown, and get Brown a first-class seat on an early-morning flight to Philadelphia. Welcome to Free Agency V. In the next two or three weeks, Super Bowl-obsessed NFL teams are going to make dozens of coveted players like Brown rich beyond their wildest dreams.

If you polled the NFL's head coaches and general managers about free agency, most of them would tell you they despise it. Most of them would tell you they prefer the good, old days, when men were men and teams were built - or destroyed - strictly through the draft and not some rich guy's checkbook. But free agency is a fact of life now in the NFL, and even those who loathe it have learned to cope with it. Friday, the fun starts again. Nearly 350 players will become unrestricted free agents, able to sign with any team that covets them.

Atlantic 10 commissioner Ron Bertovich has confirmed that Virginia Tech is one of the schools his conference is considering as a replacement for Big 10- bound Penn State. But at the same time, he denied published reports that the school already had been extended an invitation to join when Penn State leaves at the end of the current school year. "There have been discussions, but not any invitations," Bertovich told the Daily News yesterday. Quoting anonymous sources, the Dominion Post of Morgantown, W.Va.

Local food prices have dropped sharply this month, all but offsetting the big increases recorded in the last two months' surveys. The cost of our Market Basket shopping list of 35 representative foods fell 6.9 percent from July's levels and now stands 3 percent below those of one year ago. This month's Market Basket cost $47.61, compared with $51.14 last month and $49.07 in August 1987. Some of this month's savings can be traced to lower "regular" prices for flour, sugar, dried beans, cereal, rice, canned soup, peaches and pineapple at two markets we surveyed - in Brookhaven, Delaware County, and in Northeast Philadelphia.

With 3,700 exhibitors spread over 2.4 million square feet of Las Vegas convention space, covering the giant Consumer Electronics Show is a ludicrous mission. So please accept today's "Gizmo Guy Faves From CES 2016" with a giant grain of salt. Kitchen capers. The concept of a "smart" (and pricey, at $5,000) refrigerator with a built-in LCD touch screen for leaving messages and making a shopping list has been floating around for a while. But Samsung's new Internet-connected Family Hub Refrigerator finally plays the game to logical conclusions.

The Eagles' personnel staff continues to explore the availability and signability of several free agents who have yet to land with new teams. Sources said yesterday the Birds have contacted a handful of players, including defensive tackles Tony Casillas (Dallas) and former Eagle Mike Golic, recently released by Miami. Although the Eagles' interest in Casillas is serious, the ex-Cowboy's salary desires and questionable health (reportedly high blood pressure) make him a remote possibility.

THE EAGLES made another move to solidify their defensive backfield Tuesday, signing corner Nolan Carroll to a one-year deal worth $2.36 million that can pay as much as $3 million, a source close to the situation said. Carroll, 29, started 11 games for the Eagles in 2015, intercepting two passes, before suffering a season-ending broken fibula. He is expected to contend with Leodis McKelvin, signed as a free agent from Buffalo, for the starting job opposite Eric Rowe, the team's 2015 second-round draft pick.

So, it's Saturday afternoon and guests are coming in a few hours; the house needs cleaning, the dog needs walking, and you're short half the ingredients for dinner. Aditya Shah has a suggestion: Instacart. The brainchild of Shah's boss, 27-year-old Apoorva Mehta, Instacart is the latest entry into the Internet retail world, offering consumers a way to order groceries online with delivery within one to two hours. The twist is that Instacart has no products or even a delivery fleet of its own - unlike competitors such as Peapod, which has distribution centers and company trucks for deliveries.

THE back-to-school season has become so gadget-centric that it's now the second biggest selling season for electronics buying, after the year-end holidays. "Electronics actually make up most of the $80 billion back-to-school business," Consumer Electronics Association spokesman Jim Barry said recently. "And [it] is such a far cry from the pencils and notebooks we used to consider 'school supplies' back in my day. " Tops on any list for collegiates should be a "smartphone and a notebook computer," said this longtime industry tracker.

NEW YORK - It's graduation season, which means there's no shortage of lectures for new college graduates about the things they shouldn't buy. This isn't one. No matter how tight the budgets of new baccalaureates, some spending is required. Here are a few of the items that should be at the top of every grad's shopping list. Go to lunch: This isn't to endorse eating out when leftovers at your desk will do. But there's great value in calling a senior colleague at work, a recruiter at a place you want to work, or a mentor from a previous job and asking him or her to lunch.

INDIANAPOLIS - Having crossed third base, backup catcher and utility infielder off their shopping list before even picking up their winter meetings room keys, all that's left for the Phillies entourage now is to hum a familiar refrain. It always circles back to pitching, doesn't it? General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has made himself clear. He's looking for relief help, especially arms that can pitch later in the game, when the pressure begins to build. He'd like a starter who could compete for the fifth spot.
