WASHINGTON - As Ruben Amaro Jr. and various members of his front office emerged from a tunnel at Nationals Park early Tuesday evening, you half-expected them to recoil in pain at the sudden burst of sunlight. The group had spent much of the previous 3 days hunkered down at the team hotel, laying the groundwork for one of the more dramatic afternoons in recent club history. By the time the annual non-waiver trade deadline arrived, the Phillies had parted ways with two-thirds of their outfield, exchanging Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino for a well-regarded prospect, a young major league reliever, and a part-time major league outfielder, along with a couple of minor league projects.

BOSTON - The Los Angeles Dodgers are stocking up for the stretch run with some new, expensive players who couldn't help the Boston Red Sox make it to the postseason this year or last. The Dodgers officially acquired first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, pitcher Josh Beckett, and injured outfielder Carl Crawford from Boston on Saturday, hoping to boost their playoff hopes by taking on the underperforming and high-priced stars who failed to thrive in a fractious Red Sox clubhouse. Boston also sent infielder Nick Punto and about $11 million in cash to Los Angeles in the nine-player trade that was the biggest in Dodgers history.

Markieff Morris wants out of Phoenix. The Suns power forward said he feels disrespected by the way the team handled the July 9 trade of his twin and former teammate, Marcus Morris, to the Detroit Pistons. Now he is demanding a trade of his own. The North Philadelphia native, who starred with his brother at Prep Charter and Kansas, is determined to be dealt. "One thing for sure, I am not going to be there," Morris said Tuesday after a morning workout at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia.

When will the idiots who write your editorials come to realize that our government and our politicians in Washington are there for one purpose and that is to serve the constituents with laws that will benefit their constituents and protect their way of life. Call it protectionism, trade legislation, or whatever; this is what these people were elected to do. They are not elected to protect the Japanese, the Koreans, the French or the Germans, as has been happening during the last 10 years.

Cincinnati's Barry Larkin met with general manager Jim Bowden for about two hours yesterday to consider the shortstop's request for a trade. Afterward, Larkin reiterated his desire to play for a contender, but Bowden said any trade was a "dead issue" right now. Larkin asked for a trade about two weeks ago because the Reds are rebuilding, according to Bowden. The Reds talked to four clubs but could not make a deal, he said. Montreal placed pitcher Mike Maddux on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained tendon in his right elbow.

Florida Marlins pitcher Alex Fernandez hopes to return from off-season shoulder surgery by the summer, but it may just be a showcase for a trade. A memo from team president Don Smiley said the Marlins would try to trade Fernandez, Gary Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla and Charles Johnson to trim the payroll from $33 million to $16 million next year. Fernandez is in the second year of a five-year contract that guarantees him $7 million a season. Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra missed Boston's game against Kansas City with a strained right shoulder.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said there was "no chance" he would trade for Florida Panthers goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck. "He hasn't exactly done a lot for them this season, has he?" Clarke asked yesterday. The Panthers, 18-36-12, are winless in their last 12 games. Vanbiesbrouck, who stoned the Flyers in the 1996 playoffs, has a 2.89 goals-against and a .898 save percentage. Of course, given Clarke's record on being truthful with reporters, the Beezer is probably lugging his equipment through Philadelphia International Airport as you read this.

The Soul acquired wide receiver Chris Horn from the Arizona Rattlers yesterday in a trade for defensive lineman Jonathon Engram. Horn, 30, played in the preseason for the NFL's Carolina Panthers but was released before the start of the season. The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder also played for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2003 and '04. A former star at Rocky Mountain College, Horn played two seasons with the Rattlers starting in 2001. In 28 games, he caught 134 passes for 1,675 yards and 37 touchdowns.

Dallas Mavericks forward Roy Tarpley said he is prepared to accept his one- game suspension, amid reports trade talks were under way before his Tuesday night shouting matches with coach Dick Motta. "I'm going to try not to overreact and to take my medicine like a man," Tarpley said yesterday from his home minutes after owner Don Carter telephoned him with news of the suspension. "If they think this is what's best, I'll live with it. I still don't think I did anything wrong, but I have to deal with it. " Meanwhile, Tarpley's agent, George Andrews, said he is preparing to file a grievance with the NBA Players Association.

It would be no stretch to call John R. Coleman a jack of all trades. Mr. Coleman, who was indeed best known as Jack, did time as a trash hauler, sandwich maker, and ditch digger. Most remarkably, he did it all incognito during his term as president of Haverford College. Mr. Coleman, 95, who turned his undercover work into a well-known book, Blue Collar Journal: A College President's Sabbatical, died late Tuesday at a Washington hospital after a long bout with Parkinson's disease, a son said Wednesday.

The Keystone State's candidates for the U.S. Senate fired volleys at each other Tuesday at campaign events on opposite sides of Philadelphia. As a start to her fall campaign, Katie McGinty rallied at a labor hall with union workers and top Democrats, talking about creating equal pay and investing in education. "It's time for Pennsylvania to have a strong voice," said the 53-year-old former chief of staff to Gov. Wolf. She also sought to link her Republican opponent, Sen. Pat Toomey, with presidential nominee Donald Trump.

By Charles Wowkanech If you're someone who believes that unions are not as important as they once were, it's time to reconsider. It's not just a coincidence that the drop in union membership over the last 50 years corresponds directly with a decline in the middle class' share of national income. Whether you are a union member or not, this should be worrisome. Besides stagnant wages for most working people, the trend of rising income inequality reduces educational opportunity, stifles upward mobility, and distorts the power dynamics of our society.

It took a while, but with their trade of Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday, the Eagles finally completed their journey back to 1999. They have invoked that year, a transformational one for their franchise, often since April, when they acquired the No. 2 pick in the draft with the intention of selecting quarterback Carson Wentz. The situations, 17 years apart, stand as perfect mirror images, Andy Reid-Donovan McNabb the model for Doug Pederson-Wentz. Bradford, for all the lip service the Eagles played to competing for a division title this season, was merely an obscuration to that vision.

As Philadelphians honor the contributions and achievements of the American worker on Labor Day, consider the story of the International Typographical Union, one of the oldest such organizations in the country. Many early settlers counted the new world's lack of the printed word as a benefit. "I thank God, there are no free schools nor printing. . . . God keep us from both," professed William Berkeley, a colonial governor, in 1671. For these logophobes, Philadelphia was no respite.

The Eagles planned to enter the season this week with Sam Bradford as their starting quarterback until Howie Roseman walked by a television on Tuesday and saw a news alert that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a significant knee injury. That started conversations that eventually led the Eagles to send Bradford to the Vikings on Saturday in a blockbuster trade that brought the Eagles a 2017 first-round pick and 2018 conditional fourth-round pick while potentially changing the outlook of the season and accelerating the timetable of rookie Carson Wentz.

The presidential election is fast approaching, and the candidates are bashing international trade. Both are opposed to the latest trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Donald Trump would go so far as to jack up tariffs on China and Mexico. The candidates are wrong to trash trade. They should embrace it. We do run a trade deficit with the rest of the world - we import more combined goods and services than we export - but this isn't costing us lots of jobs. Indeed, after you tot up all the positives and negatives from trade, it is an unambiguous net positive for the economy and our national security.

By Desmond Lachman In assessing U.S. economic prospects beyond November's election, it bears emphasizing how precarious the state of the global economy appears to be. While the U.S. economy might be reasonably healthy, the rest of the world is decidedly not. This would underline the need for steady U.S. world economic leadership. It would also argue strongly against any U.S. action that might hasten the move to beggar-thy-neighbor policies around the world that would be detrimental to both U.S. and global economic prosperity.

WASHINGTON - In a stark reversal, Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) said Wednesday that he would oppose a major international trade deal whose prospects he once hailed, changing course as he faces a tough reelection and simmering voter anger against such pacts. Toomey, a staunch free-market conservative, has promoted the benefits of international trade, and voted last year for a measure seen as crucial to completing the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) between the United States and 11 Pacific Rim nations.
