With his team holding down last place in the National League East, Ed Wade might not be the most popular man on the Philadelphia sports scene right now. But his popularity among his peers is on the rise. The Phillies' general manager has spent much of his time the last week taking phone calls from counterparts who covet pitcher Andy Ashby. "There's significant interest," Wade said yesterday. "We've said no a couple of times already. " Wade would not discuss the teams that are hot for Ashby, but acknowledged that the interest was reflected in the scouts who turned out for the righthander's most recent start, Sunday in Baltimore.

Rumors of Shaquille O'Neal being traded now involve the Miami Heat, and team president Pat Riley did nothing to dispel those rumors yesterday. A report out of Los Angeles said the Lakers, now convinced that trading O'Neal is a necessity, have narrowed down the list of potential trade suitors to about five teams, the Heat being one. The reported offer from the Heat would involve Lamar Odom, Brian Grant and possibly a first-round draft pick....

DEAR ABBY: I'm going through a divorce and have decided not to begin dating until it's final. I told myself I would politely explain this to any gentleman who asks me out, but no one has - and I'm a little bothered by it. No one approaches me at all. I don't wear my ring and I consider myself to be a very attractive person. I'd like it if a guy approached me and made the first move. I'm worried that when I'm ready to date, it won't happen. I understand that approaching a stranger is a little unnerving, but I'm beginning to take it personally.

Either deal will create a stronger operation, and result in some loss of jobs. Philadelphia had the rare treat this week of having two major-league corporations come on bended knee to seek its blessing for their plans to wed homegrown Conrail. The city has no formal say over which of the two suitors - CSX Corp. or Norfolk Southern Corp. - will win, but that didn't seem to slow the public-relations duel. Conrail executives prefer CSX, and are trying to win shareholder and federal approval for a friendly merger.

In last week's episode of How the Zirconium Sparkles, we saw the engagement of winsome Miss QVC and doddering old CBS broken off when ardent young Comcast Corp. dangled an even bigger dowry in front of Miss Q. But when we left them Friday, Miss Q was playing coy about accepting young Comcast's $2.2 billion offer. Gossip had it that she was floating not-so- delicate hints that her hand could not be had so cheaply. Tune to the ongoing saga this week and every week for answers to such burning questions as: Will new suitors appear?

Even though American Home Products Corp. has been jilted at the merger altar a third time, the drug industry expects the company inevitably to ascend from bridesmaid to betrothed. But who will be waiting for American Home at the end of that aisle lined by joyous, matchmaking investment bankers? The field of potential suitors is increasingly wide open in a merger-crazed industry that has already seen two mega-mergers announced this year. "The list of usual suspects is pretty long," said Alex Zisson, an analyst at Chase H&Q in New York.

Can arranged marriages work? That's the question Fox poses with Married by America, a new reality series the network calls "a bold new experiment in matrimony. " The flashy, perhaps flash-in-the pan, show features five contestants - three comely brides-to-be and two handsome grooms-in-waiting. In the first week, which began with a two-hour special Monday night and continues with a one-hour installment at 9 tonight, "suitors" are being selected for each bride and groom.

Enda Walsh's Penelope is really only peripherally about that long-suffering classical icon of marital devotion. In Inis Nua Theatre Company's production, she wanders in and out of a sliding-glass door far above her final four suitors, never saying a word. They're stuck at the bottom of an empty swimming pool with a defunct barbecue grill, makeshift wet bar, and only themselves for company. One by one, between brawls, they pitch their woo to the lady upstairs through closed-circuit television camera.

There is a story behind Group Motion's performance of Labyrinth - In the Fourth Court. It's printed in the program. The hour-long theatrical dance is supposed to be based on an Afghan folktale about a narrow-minded king who locks up his daughter inside a labyrinth-like castle, and the seven suitors who try to find the hidden entrance and win the princess. Don't dwell on it. It's not that important, really. All you actually have to know is that the seven dancers portraying the suitors represent a warrior, a thinker, a builder, a sage, a lover, a child and a medium (who comes to the door expecting nothing)

It occurred to me while watching David Souter's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month that he was living up to his name. I felt about him the same way I used to about amorous male suitors - you should forgive the pun - who looked sincerely into my eyes and said "Trust me. " Oh, what a con. I know everyone was dazzled by Souter's brains and chagrined at how likable he seemed in contrast to the dour impression initially created...

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Trade speculation surrounding Cole Hamels will persist until the Phillies pull the trigger on a deal. That may not come until closer to baseball's July 31 trade deadline. But according to Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. on Sunday, one club has in the last couple of days "stepped up and has shown more particular interest" in the prized lefthander. Such a vague comment could be taken a multitude of ways but is certainly notable on a weekend when one potential Hamels suitor lost its ace and a published report pegged the New York Yankees as another.

A $13 million-per-year closer, no matter how effective or how controversial, is a superfluous asset on a rebuilding team whose strength is its young bullpen arms. It is no secret the Phillies have long sought suitors for Jonathan Papelbon, entering the last of the four-year, $50 million deal he signed in November 2011, the richest for a major league relief pitcher. Less than four weeks before the start of spring training, they may have found one. The Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers, according to Yahoo Sports!

The first major free-agent domino fell Monday when Russell Martin signed with Toronto for five years and $82 million, a contract that forces other teams to pursue their needs at catcher through a trade. No other starting catchers are available in free agency. The Pirates, Martin's former employer, traded for the Yankees' Francisco Cervelli, but both they and the Cubs are searching for a starter. They will look toward Arizona, which has reportedly made Miguel Montero available.

IN ITS BID to buy Philadelphia Gas Works, Connecticut-based UIL Holdings Corp. keeps promising that Philadelphia will love UIL once we've had the opportunity to examine its proposal. But UIL's public promises stand in stark contrast to the things they say in private, when the public's not paying attention. Those statements make clear that UIL's bid for PGW is a bad deal - bad for workers, bad for customers and bad for the city. Consider the following: * While publicly promising to protect jobs at PGW, UIL can actually cut the current PGW workforce by 300 jobs over the next three years.

The agent for newly acquired Flyers free-agent center Vincent Lecavalier said the appeal of the franchise had much to do with the player's decision to move to Philadelphia. Lecavalier, after being let go through a compliance buyout by the Tampa Bay Lightning, agreed to terms of a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Flyers on Tuesday. He can't technically sign the contract until Friday. "We could have had a much more significant contract if he made the decision solely on money," agent Kent Hughes said Wednesday in a phone interview.

  The University of Pennsylvania Health System's tentative deal to acquire Chester County Hospital in West Chester may be a move to block competitors from gaining control of a lucrative patient market, health-care experts say. "I suspect that part of the reason was they didn't want it to fall into somebody else's hands," said Mark V. Pauly, a health-care economist at the University of Pennsylvania. Pauly said he had no inside information. The two organizations said Friday that they had signed a nonbinding letter of intent, allowing Penn to delve more deeply into Chester County Hospital's weakened financial condition and work more broadly with the hospital community on a merger agreement.

NEW YORK - Twinkies, Wonder Bread, and Devil Dogs are likely to return to shelves in coming months, but probably not under the same owners. Hostess Brands Inc. said in bankruptcy court Friday it was narrowing down the bids it received for its brands and expected to sell off its snack cakes and bread to separate buyers. The testimony came from an investment banker for Hostess, which is liquidating. A likely suitor has emerged for the namesake Hostess brand, which includes Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Ho Hos, along with Dolly Madison cakes, which includes Coffee Cakes and Zingers, said Joshua Scherer of Perella Weinberg Partners.
