The long-running Lance Parrish saga will reach some sort of conclusion, not through contract negotiations but through an arbitration hearing, tomorrow in Tampa. That was confirmed late yesterday by Phillies president Bill Giles and other sources close to the situation. "I've talked to my lawyers, and at this point, we will go to the arbitration hearing Thursday in Tampa," Giles said. "Nothing should develop now until the hearing on Thursday.

Former Phillies general manager Pat Gillick said yesterday that he would consider returning to another team to oversee baseball operations, according to a report by Buster Olney, of ESPN The Magazine. Gillick, 72, who served as an adviser for the Phillies this year, left his GM post after the team won the World Series. Before his time in Philadelphia, Gillick served as general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays from 1977 to '94, and the team won championships in 1992 and 1993.

A particular meteorologist delivering the morning weather forecast on Israeli radio always ends with wishes for a good day. Now, almost as an afterthought, he's begun to add, "Just let it be a quiet one. " Every listener in Israel knows it isn't the wind he's referring to. From conferences to school outings, from family picnics to job-related travel, what Israelis universally refer to as "the situation" has become a variable always to be factored...

CLEARWATER, Fla. - A year ago Sunday, Maikel Franco stuffed a red duffel bag with his baseball belongings. He walked to the Carpenter Complex as a minor-league player, the result of overswinging to impress Phillies officials in spring training. His time, they told him, would come. Franco became Sal Rende's pupil once again. The hitting coach at triple-A Lehigh Valley met with Franco and outlined his goals. Better pitch selection. More patience. Knowing the situation , a word Franco constantly repeats from his established corner of the clubhouse at Bright House Field.

Marty Biron, who signed with the goaltender-heavy New York Islanders on Wednesday, sees his situation as an opportunity, not a hindrance. The Flyers did not re-sign the free agent, who was their starting goalie the past two-plus seasons. Biron is the third NHL goalie under contract to the Islanders. Rick DiPietro is signed through the 2020-21 season and Dwayne Roloson signed a 2-year deal earlier this month. DiPietro only played five games last season because of a knee injury. "We were thinking outside the box and tried to make it work with the Islanders," Biron told Newsday, a Long Island-based newspaper.

Bobby Seale, the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, says he's been financially lean since a bad barbecue rib deal in Ohio two years ago. The still-unresolved episode, which resulted in a grand jury indictment in Ohio on charges of passing bad checks, led to Seale being arrested and jailed Thursday after his car rear-ended a fire truck in Germantown. For the first time yesterday, Seale agreed to discuss his legal and financial problems. His lawyers have advised him to keep silent about his troubles, but Seale said he's in such straits that he's calling friends across the country to help him out financially.

During his brief, but very necessary respite from coaching the 76ers, Larry Brown found himself in a bustling bookstore in the suburbs, watching in fascination as a clerk ever so carefully wrapped his purchases for Christmas. "They were being so nice, so careful, taking so much time," Brown recalled, "I looked at my wife Shelly and said, 'Pat Croce put you up to this.' " Whether giving the 60-year-old coach two full days off before the 25th game of an 82-game schedule was the team president's, general manager Billy King's or Brown's, it appears to have served its purpose.

Mo Reilly has known where she wanted to go to college for some time. Yesterday, the first day of the early signing period, the 6-foot senior forward from Paul VI made it official, signing a letter of intent to play basketball at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn. "I'm so excited. I've really anticipated this day," Reilly said. "When I went up there, I really liked the coaches and the players. The whole situation just fit me. " The Pioneers, who lost to eventual national champion Maryland in the first round of the NCAA tournament last March, won their first Northeast Conference championship last season and are picked to repeat this season.

KENJON BARNER isn't carrying a Chip on his shoulder. Barner is the Eagles running back who played for Chip Kelly at Oregon - setting the school's single-game rushing record in 2012 with 321 yards on 38 carries against USC - then ended up joining Kelly with the Eagles, when Kelly traded with Carolina for him near the end of the 2014 preseason. But Kelly is gone; Barner is still here, working in new coach Doug Pederson's scheme; and so far, Barner seems to be flourishing. He sparkled Wednesday, given extra reps with fifth-round rookie Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps)

CSNPhilly.com happily reported Thursday that first-half television ratings for Phillies games were up 22 percent over last year, when the ball club was more unwatchable than the 1987 movie Ishtar . This was great news for the website's parent company, because no one on the planet has a more vested interest in the Phillies' television ratings than Comcast. The cable giant has 100 million reasons per year over the next 25 years to cheer for good ratings on Phillies games. It should also please the mother of all cable companies that there are plenty of reasons for us to keep watching when the season resumes Friday with the start of a three-game series against the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's quite a lot that can be solved (or ignored) now if you simply decide to trust the other person. Neglect can be a good thing if what you're neglecting is no longer necessary. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Who do you need to get to know better? Likely it's someone behind-the-scenes who understands what you don't and can impart knowledge and insight. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even the most seemingly not-creative aspects of your life are sources of inspiration.

NEW YORK - Union coach Jim Curtin has an interesting way of choosing who takes penalty kicks - he doesn't make the choice at all. It could be interesting if two players want to take the kick, but Curtin says it all sorts itself out. During Saturday's 3-2 loss to New York City FC at Yankee Stadium, Roland Alberg took penalty-kick matters into his own hands, or, rather, feet. After Fabian Herbers was taken down in the box, Alberg immediately grabbed the ball and set it down, leaving no doubt who would take it. There was no debate with anybody.

A 32-year-old Oxford Circle man has been arrested and charged with assault and related offenses after he allegedly threatened his estranged wife with a gun Tuesday night and then holed himself up in his house with their 5-year-old son, police said Wednesday. Police said the wife, 25, went to her husband Stanley Rykowski's house on the 5800 block of Penn Street to talk to him about custody of their child. After first seeing her husband at the back of the house, before he ran back in, the woman knocked on a front window of the house, police said.

The Eagles, through their long and somewhat tortured history, have been familiar with strange situations at the quarterback position. It is that spot on the football depth chart where otherwise reliable decision-makers - including coaches, team executives, and the players themselves - come up with some head-scratching stuff, and never more than when a team is about to switch from one savior to the next. Just recently, the handoff from Michael Vick to Nick Foles was messy; as was the one from Donovan McNabb to Kevin Kolb; and, reaching further back, who else but Buddy Ryan could have used three quarterbacks in the same series (Ron Jaworski, Randall Cunningham, and Matt Cavanaugh in 1986)

TO LONGTIME 76ers fans, it was a sight to see. Julius Erving graciously and, as always, eloquently speaking to the media when Allen Iverson joined the session and the two shared a couple of bearhugs before Doc planted a kiss on Iverson's forehead. It was a look into the past. Into what had been a great franchise on a night when the bridge from past to present continued to be constructed. The team hosted the Sixers Youth Foundation gala Thursday night on the floor of the beloved Palestra, a charitable event with the proceeds benefiting area kids who are less fortunate.

Attytood SUPER SATURDAY? Really? Saturday's mish-mosh of primaries and caucuses has to go down as one of the most boring and predictable days of the 2016 campaign so far. On the GOP side, Donald Trump won the states where people think Barack Obama was born the Antichrist or in Kenya or both (Kentucky, Louisiana) while Ted Cruz rules the Bible Belt; the fist-shaking prairie populists voting for Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side are drowned out by near unanimous black support for Hillary Clinton in the South.

Question: I'm in the middle of a messy divorce, six months after my son - conceived after years of IVF - died at birth. I've also just started a new job with a lot more responsibility, and am living in temporary accommodations since my soon-to-be-ex is in the marital home. I'm constantly either furious or in deep, black grief. It's exhausting. My counselor says I need to take better care of myself. I agree, but I don't know how. If I take some time off, or go on vacation, or treat myself, it won't change the reality - my son will still be dead, and my marriage will still have collapsed.
