MIAMI - Derek Dietrich lowered his shoulder into Carlos Ruiz, and the Phillies catcher's mask went flying as two bodies smashed Saturday night. Ruiz thudded to the ground with the ball secured in his mitt. The Phillies dugout erupted as a stoic Ruiz shuffled toward them. He could still take a hit. "They were excited about Chooch," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "He's a tough guy. " Ruiz has provided the Phillies so much in 18 years, ever since he signed in Panama for $8,000 and earned $31 million in the majors.

If the goal was to inspire young people to become union carpenters, it was working. "I'd like to build skyscrapers," said Darell Young, 18, a junior at Strawberry Mansion High School, who came with a busload of classmates to the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters' show-and-tell on steroids at the union's training center in Northeast Philadelphia. Young and his friends walked through 96,000 square feet of carpentry shops. They watched the union's top apprentices competing as they finish a four-year program of classroom training and hands-on experience.

ON A COUPLE of different occasions this offseason, Howie Roseman has said that a looming spike in demand for quarterbacks factored into the Eagles' conversations as they decided whether to pay the price the Browns were asking in exchange for the No. 2 pick, which the Eagles needed to draft the quarterback they desired. The line of argument goes something like this: In addition to the usual uncertainty that a handful of teams face at quarterback, a slew of longtime fixtures at the position are in the stage of their careers where any season could be their last.

LET'S CONSIDER, "What if?" As in, "What if the Eagles stood pat for the 2016 draft? What if they never made the two big trades and simply drafted 13th?" And, so: A retro mock draft. It's impossible to completely put the horse back in the barn. The team's salary structure was altered the day it began delousing itself of the Chip Kelly era, trading Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, DeMarco Murray and Mark Sanchez for picks. Its needs changed, too, some of which were filled before the draft; Sanchez and Maxwell, for instance.

The Eagles, through their long and somewhat tortured history, have been familiar with strange situations at the quarterback position. It is that spot on the football depth chart where otherwise reliable decision-makers - including coaches, team executives, and the players themselves - come up with some head-scratching stuff, and never more than when a team is about to switch from one savior to the next. Just recently, the handoff from Michael Vick to Nick Foles was messy; as was the one from Donovan McNabb to Kevin Kolb; and, reaching further back, who else but Buddy Ryan could have used three quarterbacks in the same series (Ron Jaworski, Randall Cunningham, and Matt Cavanaugh in 1986)

CHICAGO - Over the course of his 12 NFL seasons, Kurt Warner found himself replaced as a starting quarterback, at various times, by Marc Bulger, Eli Manning, Josh McCown and Matt Leinart, with the Rams, Giants and Cardinals, respectively. Yet Warner never asked to be traded. "They're paying me $18 million to be here. When I signed that contract, I believed it was to be the starting quarterback, but now, I'm going to have to earn the right to be the starting quarterback," Warner said, when asked how he would react in Sam Bradford's situation.

This would seem to be exactly the sort of thing the Eagles were trying to avoid when Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson met with Sam Bradford before last Wednesday's minicamp practice, to deliver in three-part harmony the news that they had traded up to second overall in the draft to get a quarterback, and to reassure Bradford that he was their 2016 starter. Welp. Maybe a follow-up meeting or two would have been in order, because by Monday morning, agent Tom Condon was calling Roseman with news of Bradford wanting to be traded.

The five days that lapsed between the Eagles' trade for the No. 2 draft pick and Sam Bradford's reported request to be dealt would have been more than enough time for agent Tom Condon to gauge the market for trade partners. All he needs is one team. Otherwise, Bradford's hard-line stance, if true, would be ill-advised. But even if Condon has a suitor, he has to convince Howie Roseman that Bradford is prepared to hold out. It is the quarterback's only leverage, but it does have additional weight because of the importance of the position.

(In the agenda, the Daily News will examine a major issue of the day in Philadelphia sports. We will frame the question and look at it from multiple angles, bringing you opinions from a sports staff unmatched in its experience. The Agenda will run occasionally, only in the Daily News). Les Bowen: I would press for a meeting to try to smooth this over. Take Sam out to dinner. (Jeffrey Lurie knows a nice spot in Fargo, N.D.). Reiterate that he's the QB in 2016, the team should be decent, if Bradford is healthy and productive he'll either be here again as the starter in 2017 or get a bunch of money from somebody else.

The Flyers are a year ahead of schedule. By using a late-season surge to earn a surprising playoff berth and then extending Stanley Cup favorite Washington to six games, young players Shayne Gostisbehere, Nick Cousins, and Brandon Manning gained unexpected and invaluable experience. In addition, Vinny Lecavalier's retirement assures them of $2.25 million in increased salary-cap space and could help them land a much-needed top-six forward in the offseason free-agent market. The Flyers (41-27-14)
