The weather outside was frightful. The forecast was even worse. Lenny Dykstra, as fidgety in his spacious Main Line home one recent day as he is working a pitcher on an endless summer night, couldn't wait. Couldn't wait for the flight that since has transported him to the sunshine of Clearwater, Fla. 34617. Couldn't wait to bury the ghosts of the past two seasons, a tempestuous time littered with injuries and controversies. Couldn't wait, like a little kid on Christmas morning, to tear into the 1993 season and discover what wonders might be in store.

Looking for a reason to believe in these 2001 Phillies? You won't find it in the starting pitching over the last three days. Over that span, Robert Person, Bruce Chen and Randy Wolf - three pitchers who are being heavily counted on this season - were tagged for 22 hits and 15 earned runs in 10 2/3 innings, and manager Larry Bowa isn't happy about it. Ah, but it's only spring training. It doesn't matter. Hakuna matata. No worries. It will all be different when the regular season starts.

On Thursday, I will board a plane for a delightful string of days in balmy Florida. I love the beach, but I won't have a single bathing suit stowed in my suitcase. The purpose of my annual mid-March getaway is twofold - I go to Clearwater to watch baseball games, as many as I can fit into eight days. And I go to hang out with my dad, who taught me everything I know about being a Phillies fan. I tease him for his mercurial feelings about Phils manager Charlie Manuel and the terrible handwriting he uses when pinch-hitting for me at keeping score, as I do every game.

CLIFF LEE, arguably the most important player on the 2015 Phillies roster, given his salary and on-field impact, remains on track to be ready to return when the Phillies open camp in Clearwater in February. Lee underwent an MRI on Friday at the Rothman Institute that yielded "positive results," the Phillies said in a news release Wednesday. According to the team medical staff, Lee's flexor tendon is "healing well. " Lee will begin a full throwing program in November. Lee, 36, was limited to 13 starts this season after two separate stints on the disabled list because of an ailing left elbow.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Spring training is to the regular baseball season what Johnny & the Doo-Dads are to the Rolling Stones. It is a warm-up act, a space filler, a revving of engines before the green flag, a teaser for what is to come. Nothing is won in spring training and nothing is lost, at least from a team standpoint. Players can win or lose spots, but only on the margins of the roster. The regulars get their work in, pack up after a handful of innings, and get out of there before the traffic.

The Phillies invited three players to spring training Friday, including righthander Dave Bush, a Conestoga graduate. In addition to Bush, lefthander David Purcey and catcher Steven Lerud signed minor-league deals with invitations to big-league camp. Bush, 32, likely projects as the top starter in the triple-A Lehigh Valley rotation. Signed late in 2011, he made four starts for the IronPigs. He has pitched in parts of eight seasons with three major-league teams. Purcey, 29, pitched in 33 games with Toronto, Oakland, and Detroit in 2011.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Power is the thing that attracted the Phillies to Art Charles. "Charles is a guy who has big pop," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the day he acquired the 6-foot-6 first baseman from the Toronto Blue Jays for reliever Michael Schwimer. "Whether he's going to be a major-league hitter at some point, we don't know, but we know he has a lot of power. " After watching Charles play for a month at low-A Lakewood, the Phillies are happy with their return so far because he has provided the advertised power and even more.

Relief pitchers Amaury Telemaco and Geoff Geary agreed to contracts yesterday with the Phillies. The Phillies did not offer contracts to Telemaco, Geary and outfielder Jorge Padilla, infielder Lou Collier and catcher Michel Hernandez before Monday's midnight deadline. That made them free agents. The Phillies signed Telemaco to a one-year contract worth $600,000 plus bonuses. Geary will make $320,000 if he pitches in the majors. Padilla agreed to a triple-A contract and has been invited to spring training as a non-roster player.
