CLEARWATER, Fla. - Andy Oliver's self-critique of his third straight scoreless outing this spring was "not that good. " The Phillies pitcher was not satisfied even though he allowed no hits and struck out a pair of batters in two innings Wednesday in a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Oliver has not allowed a run in six innings this spring. The lefthander has struck out four batters and scattered two hits in the best spring training of his career. "Overall it was all right," Oliver said.

Weak offense With the M*A*S*H* list growing by the minute inside the clubhouse - Maikel Franco left early yesterday to have a root canal - it was easy to miss the fact that the Phillies had four hits to go alongside a goose egg on the home half of the scoreboard entering the ninth inning. Non-roster first baseman Chris McGuiness singled in the ninth inning but the Phillies lost to Detroit, 6-0 at Bright House Field. It marked the fourth time in the last five games the Phillies scored fewer than three runs.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - While Freddy Galvis enjoys his first spring as a starter and Darin Ruf tries to take advantage of a chance for more playing time, and pitchers such as Phillippe Aumont and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez attempt to get something out of their gifted-yet-flawed arms, the Phillies veterans continue to be somewhat out of place in Camp Clearwater. They all said the right things upon checking into Bright House Field in the last 3 weeks - except for lefthander Cole Hamels, in an interview published just before camp - but they undoubtedly would rather play for a team with serious World Series aspirations than for an organization that committed to a rebuild this offseason.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The other spring training opens for the Phillies Sunday morning at the Carpenter Complex, and, given the state of the team, it is the more important one. For the first time in this century, the Phillies arrived on the Gulf Coast of Florida as neither contenders nor pretenders. The proclamation from team president Pat Gillick in the offseason was that the Phillies are officially rebuilding. Depressing as that is for the fans, it has an entirely different meaning for the long list of minor-leaguers reporting for Sunday's first full-squad workout.

It's dainty when parked along the perimeter of a poncho and rough-and-rugged indie when it's fashioned into a leather skirt. The trendlet What else, but fringe? Designers are effusively shearing suede into thin strips and stringing teeny, tiny beads (or sometimes bold baubles) onto angel hair pasta-size twine to make the fringe snazz up our spring silhouettes. The ticklish-to-the-touch tassels are at their most modern as pendants on cleavage-grazing necklaces. Where's it come from?

Friday was the first day that NJSIAA baseball teams could begin practice, and we're guessing that not many teams in South Jersey had outdoor workouts. The snowstorm of Thursday wasn't very field-friendly. The season begins April 1, so every day leading up to it is important, but at least in the beginning, those days will be taking place indoors. And that goes to show what people from South Jersey, and really, the entire Northeast have to go through to play baseball or softball.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - About a half hour after J.P. Crawford joined a group of minor leaguers taking infield work just outside Bright House Field, Aaron Nola finished his morning workout at the Carpenter Complex. Although minor league camp doesn't officially open until tomorrow, the Phillies' top two prospects were already in attendance and getting their work in early. There had been some speculation that Nola, the team's first-round pick last June, could get an invitation to big-league camp.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Aaron Harang's debut in a Phillies uniform will be delayed for what the 36-year-old righthander deemed "maintenance" reasons. Harang was slated to start Wednesday's game against the New York Yankees in Tampa but instead will miss his turn in the rotation. He is tentatively set to start Monday's game against the Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota. "That's the plan, for him to miss one start and then be ready," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He's taking care of some things and it should allow him if all goes well in the next couple days, for him to be ready for that next start.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The first time he stepped into the batter's box in a game in five months, Ryan Howard didn't stay there long. The 35-year-old first baseman dug in, swung at the first pitch and singled to left field. Two innings later, he battled 21-year-old righthander Luis Severino to a full count. The eighth pitch of the at-bat found a home in right field, permitting Freddy Galvis to score and ensuring Howard a positive Grapefruit League debut. A half hour after he was replaced by Darin Ruf to start the sixth inning, Howard broke his media silence.

The sun will set at 7 p.m. Sunday, and astronomers are calling for a 100 percent chance of an equinox in a little over two weeks. So why is the atmosphere stuck in January? After the second ice-shellacking in two days Tuesday, the National Weather Service was warning of the possibility of several inches of snow from Wednesday night into Thursday. "I'm very confident Thursday is going to be a difficult day," said Walter Drag, a lead forecaster at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly.
