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.

The Eagles traded quarterback Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday for a conditional seventh-round pick in a deal that clears the way for Tim Tebow to make the 53-man roster. The trade headlined the eve of cut-down day, when NFL rosters must be reduced from 75 to 53 players. The Eagles informed multiple players that they will be waived, according to sources and reports, and still have a few more moves to make by 4 p.m. on Saturday. The highest-profile move was trading Barkley.

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.

SAN DIEGO - The moment was just as Jake Thompson had envisioned it, even though he first imagined his major-league debut would come with the Detroit Tigers, then the Texas Rangers, and finally, the Phillies. The 22-year-old righthander was traded two times before he reached the majors, where he will debut Saturday as one of the Phillies' top pitching prospects. He considers it good preparation. "I've had a lot of different opinions," said Thompson, who stood in front of a No. 44 Phillies jersey that hung from his locker at Petco Park.

The Union continued the reshaping of their team right up to the deadline of the Major League Soccer transfer window. In a deal that was completed around midnight Wednesday, the Union acquired veteran forward Charlie Davies and a natural third-round selection in the 2018 MLS draft from the New England Revolution for general and targeted allocation money and the Union's first-round pick in the 2018 draft. Coupled with the addition earlier Wednesday of U.S. national team midfielder Alejandro Bedoya, the Union have fortified their team for the MLS stretch run. With 12 games remaining, the Union (8-8-6)

Approaching baseball's non-waiver trade deadline from the high road occupied by contenders is a lot different than climbing up to it from below. The better teams have good seasons in the balance, seasons that could be improved with the right additions, but those organizations are already winners and their general managers are comfortable in their office chairs. That isn't the case for the teams that hold up the few attractive pieces of their rosters like rare produce from an otherwise fallow field, hoping desperately to get the seeds for a better harvest in return.

After weeks of talks with interested teams desperate for pitching in a barren market, the Phillies reached Monday's trade deadline with the realization that they valued Jeremy Hellickson more than anyone else. By not trading the veteran pitcher, they are willing to take a $17 million risk on him. Either Hellickson nets them a high draft pick or becomes one of the highest-paid pitchers in franchise history next season. "We have some younger pitchers that are going to be approaching innings totals for the season that they have never approached before," Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said.

ATLANTA - The last pitch Jeremy Hellickson threw - perhaps of his Phillies career - was a 90-mph fastball that Braves catcher Anthony Recker lashed to left field for a run-scoring single. As Pete Mackanin arrived to snag the ball from Hellickson in the sixth inning of a 9-5 Phillies win, there was a sense that Hellickson had done his job - on many levels. Now, the Phillies wait. Hellickson did not pitch his best game Saturday night against the worst team in baseball. His nine-start streak of pitching at least six innings ended.

ATLANTA - There was no need in Pete Mackanin's mind to consider a contingency plan for Saturday, just in case his scheduled starter was no longer his scheduled starter. The trade market gained momentum on Friday with a deal between the Marlins and Padres that sent two starting pitchers to Miami, which eliminated a possible suitor for Jeremy Hellickson. It could hasten a trade involving Hellickson as other teams pursue backup options. For now, he is still slated to pitch at Turner Field against the Braves.

ATLANTA - This is the time of year on the baseball calendar that generates ambition. Teams in contention covet the better players on lesser teams. Executives swap banter. Scouts whisper to other scouts. So, when Vince Velasquez pitched Friday night in a 2-1 loss to Atlanta with three Texas Rangers officials in the stands and rumors abound, there was intrigue three days before the trade deadline. If the Phillies are to deal Velasquez, they must be overwhelmed by another team's offer, enough to eschew a new regime's public philosophy and sacrifice one of the few true power arms in the organization.

This is the time of year for ambitious phone calls, missed connections, and irrational fantasies. The trade deadline is in 11 days. Other teams have called Matt Klentak, and the Phillies general manager said trade dialogue has intensified in recent days. "Truth be told, a lot of those conversations go nowhere," Klentak said. "None of them have led to anything. Some are fairly superficial. Some are fairly detailed. We'll just continue to take the calls and see what may happen. " The targets are familiar: Jeremy Hellickson, Jeanmar Gomez and Peter Bourjos.

The Phillies played Wednesday for the 96th time this season, and there was greater importance in the pitch-by-pitch results, despite the patience dictated by this whole process. Jeremy Hellickson pitched for something bigger on an otherwise typical summer evening: a chance at the postseason, a more visible stage for the next two months while he vies for precious free-agent money this winter. For eight innings in a 4-1 win over Miami at Citizens Bank Park, Hellickson advanced his future and that of his employer's.

Jeremy Hellickson had to work through his 18th start with the Phillies on Wednesday afternoon, pitching into trouble, pitching out, fighting with his location, always trying to make a great delivery from the stretch. It isn't an easy way to pitch, but being a starter for the Phils can be trying in many ways. Hellickson needed 92 pitches to scuffle through six innings. He gave the team a chance to win, however, which is just about all manager Pete Mackanin can ask of his staff. Hellickson left trailing by a run, but the Phillies tied the game, and then later won it with a pair of home runs to beat the Braves, 4-3, and win their third straight series.
