IT WAS AN interesting hypothetical, given the subject's recent play. And it's a topic that could pop up again should any of the NFL's other 31 teams lose their starting quarterback to injury and lack a better option. Toward the end of his news conference yesterday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly was presented with this scenario from a reporter: Considering how well backup quarterback Mark Sanchez has performed in the preseason and training camp, how would the Eagles react if a team called with interest in making a trade?

SAN FRANCISCO - The rumors of Cole Hamels' departure will not soon subside. The ace lefthander cannot be traded until November. Whether or not to deal Hamels to replenish a depleted pool of young talent will be the winter's most significant dilemma. Hamels has made his intent clear: He wants to remain in Philadelphia. But he wants to win, and contention could take the Phillies years to recapture. "For me the idea is to try to turn it around rather quickly," manager Ryne Sandberg said.

On Thursday, the Phillies turned soon-to-be free agent Roberto Hernandez into two minor leaguers to be named later because a contending team was short a starting pitcher. The Los Angeles Dodgers pursued Hernandez after they realized Josh Beckett's hip injury was going to put him back on the disabled list. Another team's injury became the Phillies' gain, even it turns out to be minimal. Yesterday, another contending team may have lost a pitcher. Detroit's Anibal Sanchez left his start in Toronto with an apparent arm injury.

Gov. Christie will travel to Mexico early next month on a trade mission intended to strengthen New Jersey's economic ties to the Latin American country, his office announced Thursday. The three-day visit - Christie's first international trip of his second term - will "promote increased trade, economic growth, job creation, and higher education" in New Jersey and Mexico, the governor's office said in a statement. It will include a meeting between Christie and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Christie's office said.

TWO WEEKS ago, with the days leading up to baseball's non-waiver trade deadline winding down, Antonio Bastardo said he honestly hadn't given much thought to being traded and he wasn't worried about it one way or another. But less than a week after the deadline passed, with some time to reflect on it more, Bastardo may be just as confused as anyone else is that he's still a member of the Phillies. Prior to last night's game at Citizens Bank Park, Bastardo said he'd probably be better off had he been traded as opposed to wasting away with the Phillies.

When a decaying wooden ship was discovered in the World Trade Center excavation pit four years ago, it posed a mystery. Where did it come from? How did it get there? Was it wrecked? Or was it sunk intentionally for landfill? Archaeologists, maritime experts, and tree-ring researchers last week announced their conclusions: The ship, believed to be a Hudson River sloop, was built shortly after 1773 in the bustling port of Philadelphia. The wood from the ship was matched not just to Philadelphia, but to the same sort of oak trees that were used to build the old State House, where the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.

WASHINGTON - The four TVs in the visitors clubhouse at Nationals Park were black minutes before Thursday's trade deadline, to muffle the last rumors. Marlon Byrd retreated to a small room to digest video. A.J. Burnett and Jonathan Papelbon commandeered a table in an adjacent cafeteria to watch MLB Network as blockbuster deals without Phillies manifested. This marked one of the busiest deadlines in baseball history; 37 players moved in 12 trades. When 4 p.m. passed without a Phillies transaction, it was not an indictment of Ruben Amaro Jr's inability to trade.

NEW YORK - Just before ducking into the visiting radio booth yesterday morning - a half-hour before the matinee with the Mets and about 29 hours before today's trade deadline - Ruben Amaro Jr. spotted a couple of reporters. The Phillies general manager playfully raised his eyebrows and rubbed his hands together, as if he was hatching a secret plan. The details of that (imaginary?) plan is the great mystery, of course, as Amaro declined comment twice before his team wrapped up a three-game series at Citi Field.

SO THIS IS how it ends. With a whimper, not a bang. All summer long, and really, late in the spring, today was the day that it all could restart for the Phillies. They would trade that core they held onto for too long, pay off chunks of those big salaries Ruben Amaro Jr. awarded to the aging, homegrown guys and the long-in-tooth veterans he collected and valued like an antiques collector collects and values old lamps. And the refurbishing project long anticipated and long delayed would begin in earnest.

NEW YORK - If Ruben Amaro Jr. was still on the fence about being a buyer or seller, then Trade Deadline Eve should have helped sway the thinking of the Phillies general manager. Amaro's problem: No general manager in baseball history has ever been able to trade his entire team in one day, and club president David Montgomery and his silent partners probably are willing to eat some of those beefy contracts, but they'd never be willing to swallow the entire $180 million cow. So instead, Amaro hopped on the team charter after the Phillies' latest embarrassing effort - a mind-numbing, 11-2 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field - and headed for Washington, where this wretched season will continue Thursday night after the 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline has passed.
