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 have already dealt LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles, and Evan Mathis might be next. Mathis' name has surfaced in trade discussions, as NFL.com first reported, and Eagles coach Chip Kelly did not exactly shoot down the rumors when asked on Thursday. "I think in the last week, I think every person on this team was talked about on trade blocks," Kelly said. "We've had discussions about everybody and everything. As we put together models, there wasn't anybody who was untouchable.

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.

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.

" Meanwhile, Tarpley's agent, George Andrews, said he is preparing to file a grievance with the NBA Players Association.

Officials at the Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades discovered just how much of a millstone the institution's name could be when it looked as if it might cost them millions. Philanthropist Henry M. Rowan had promised the Delaware County school $5 million if the post-secondary institution could match the grant with additional donations. When board members began calling potential donors, not only was the private school unknown to many, its name clouded its mission. Then a branding expert delivered more bad news.

BEN REVERE had been back in town from spring training for only a few days and was about to take the field for pregame batting practice on Opening Day when a reporter told him he was on the trade block. "Right before the first pitch," Revere recalled Wednesday afternoon. "I'm like, damn. OK. But that's the way it is. It happens to everybody. " Revere, 27, already has been traded once (by Minnesota to the Phils, for today's opposing starter, Vance Worley) and understands the sport he plays is also a business.

Inquirer columnist Bob Brookover was on the just-completed six-game road trip with the team. This is the second in a series of stories about the Fightin Phils. HARRISBURG, Pa. - The terminology tends to dehumanize the process. We call them "prospects" and describe them as being "down on the farm.

It took the best part of an hour, but a debate eventually broke out among the six Democratic mayoral candidates Monday night. The first inkling they might harbor conflicting views came with former City Councilman James F. Kenney's mention of Selma, Ala., and a need to be sure Philadelphia's police know the history of the civil rights movement. That was enough raise State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams' pulse and voice. "That is insulting to a generation who know the significance of Selma," said Williams, who then derided one of Kenney's signature legislative achievements, the reduction of penalties for possession of marijuana.

The Eagles needed to wait four hours to make a pick Saturday. They traded their fourth-round pick to the Detroit Lions for a 2016 third-round pick, a move that coach Chip Kelly called a short-term sacrifice for a long-term gain. The Eagles already entered the day without a fifth-round pick, so they needed to wait until the sixth and seventh rounds to complete their draft. They added defensive backs JaCorey Shepherd (Kansas) and Randall Evans (Kansas State) in the sixth round, and defensive lineman Brian Mihalik (Boston College)

MIAMI - Ryan Howard's major league service time reached 10 years Saturday, ensuring the longtime Phillies first baseman the same 10-and-5 no-trade rights afforded to second baseman Chase Utley. While an achievement in itself, the significance of Howard's reaching 10 years in the majors, at least the last five with the same team, probably ends there. It is not believed his no-trade rights would be an obstacle to a deal if a trade partner was found, which is still a long shot considering his albatross of a contract and lack of productivity.

With construction going on around the city and building projects on the rise, six of Philadelphia's building-trades unions settled contracts Thursday designed to make them more marketable in the suburbs. "We are trying collectively to become more competitive in the counties," said Emily Bittenbender, chief executive of Bittenbender Construction L.P. and chairwoman of the General Building Contractors Association (GBCA). Most Center City projects are built by contractors using union labor, but union construction projects are less prevalent in the suburbs.

WHILE MUCH of the fan focus in Philadelphia has been on the possibility of the Eagles trading up to get Marcus Mariota, many of the phone calls that are being made by NFL teams this week have to do with a desire to trade down. Teams aren't thrilled with the quality of talent in the first round. While Chip Kelly may disagree, neither of the top two quarterbacks – Mariota or Jameis Winston – is considered a can't-miss prospect. "I think both of them are going to be projects that you're going to have to work with," said former NFL executive Bill Polian, who now works as an analyst for ESPN.

When Chip Kelly lays his head down at night and counts seconds between snaps, what quarterback does he dream of? Of all the reasons given for why the Eagles could trade up and draft Marcus Mariota in Thursday's NFL draft, Kelly's seemingly unwavering belief that his former Oregon quarterback will be a transformative player is at the crux of any plausible argument. "He might be the fastest guy on the field, but his mind is even faster," Kelly said of Mariota in January before the national championship.

Pull off fast track Check Up blogger Daniel R. Hoffman notes some damaging information coming out about the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, including the potential for less access to affordable medicines ("Self-dealing physicians and a bad trade deal," April 21, Philly.com). But there is even more cause for alarm to those of us in the religious community: The fast-track process means the voices of most people impacted by its provisions will not be heard. That means less deliberation, feedback, and understanding of possible environmental damage.
