CLEARWATER, Fla. - More than a few heads surely turned here at 1:29 p.m. Sunday when the seven-hole hitter for the Boston Red Sox stepped into the batter's box for the first time. Blake Swihart is the touted catching prospect the Phillies are said to covet in a potential trade involving ace Cole Hamels. The 22-year-old's name constantly surfaces in trade speculation, and will likely continue to do so until the July 31 trade deadline passes. But while it was a bit curious that Swihart was the catcher sent on the more than two-hour trip to start against the Phillies at Bright House Field, there was nothing to it, according to the Red Sox. "So, Blake's here because of the rotation that we've been looking for with position players the last four to five days," Boston manager John Farrell said before the game.

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.

Chip Kelly broke more than two months of public silence Wednesday and committed to Sam Bradford as the Eagles' quarterback while trying to silence speculation that the team is pursuing Marcus Mariota. "Let's dispel that right now. I think that stuff is crazy," said the Eagles coach, who called Mariota the best quarterback in the draft. "We will never mortgage our future to go all the way up to get somebody like that because we have too many other holes that we are going to take care of. " He apparently does not think one of those holes is at quarterback after acquiring Bradford on Tuesday, surrendering Nick Foles, a 2016 second-round pick, and a 2015 fourth-round pick.

FOR MAYBE 30 minutes there, Eagles fans were elated. An NFL Network graphic said that in addition to exchanging Nick Foles for Sam Bradford, their team was swapping first-round picks with the St. Louis Rams, moving up from 20th overall to 10th. This happy news was tweeted forth across the land, over hill and over dale, sometimes accompanied by a screen-grab. It had to be the first step in a double move to draft Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, right? Suddenly, the possible trade Philadelphia had been obsessing over for months seemed very tangible.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - I said this a couple of days ago, but it's worth reiterating in the wake of yesterday's news that Cliff Lee will attempt to pitch through a flexor tendon tear: What's done is done. The Phillies cannot panic and trade Cole Hamels for the best offer currently on the table, because those offers will get better. They have to get better. Maybe not to the point where the Phillies would like, but certainly better than a month ago, when Ruben Amaro Jr. said he'd received bids from four teams, none of which came close to his asking price.

The Eagles traded Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams on Tuesday in a perplexing move that brought former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford to Philadelphia after two major knee injuries and also required the Eagles to surrender their 2016 second-round pick. The official transaction included Foles, a 2015 fourth-round pick, and a 2016 second-round pick for Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round pick. If Bradford does not play 50 percent of the snaps, the Eagles will receive a fourth-round pick in 2016.

It is the longest-running mystery in Philadelphia sports history, and now the part of Sherlock Holmes is being played by Chip Kelly. The coach and his team are in search of that elusive Vince Lombardi Trophy, a sterling silver football award that stands 22 inches, weighs seven pounds, and has never been hoisted by a man in an Eagles uniform. The suspense is killing Eagles fans, the majority of whom were not alive when the franchise last won an NFL championship by beating Lombardi's Green Bay Packers in 1960 and many of whom wonder if they'll still be breathing when the team celebrates its next title.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Ruben Amaro Jr. walked into Charlotte Sports Park yesterday morning flanked by head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan and media-relations staffer Craig Hughner. Most combinations of people hold little meaning to be derived, but spend enough time watching baseball's rhythms from field level and you'll learn there are some that portend news. So when Amaro summoned reporters to the Phillies' dugout, there were only two questions left to ponder: Who is it? How bad is it?

The Eagles have a proposed trade in place that would send Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, according to two NFL sources. The trade cannot be finalized until Tuesday, when the new league year opens at 4 p.m. The blockbuster move sends the Eagles' all-time leading rusher to Buffalo for the 24-year-old Alonso, who played under Eagles coach Chip Kelly at Oregon. Kelly spoke at a fund-raiser in Cherry Hill on Tuesday night, but when reporters asked about the McCoy trade, Eagles vice president of team security Dom DiSandro ushered him out the back door.
