NEW YORK - When Eric J. Foss, Aramark's chief executive, huddled for about 20 minutes Thursday morning with traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange waiting for the first trade of the Philadelphia company's new shares, that may well have been the longest break he's had in the last week and a half. Foss and other Aramark executives have been to nine cities in the last eight days, meeting with more than 200 institutional investors to drum up interest in Aramark, which was going public for the third time.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The two men spoke loudly enough in the ninth-floor hallway so everyone could hear. A day's worth of trade rumors at these winter meetings spiraled around the Phillies, and team executives found them humorous. They planned a skit. "We can't trade Cole," Ruben Amaro Jr. said to Scott Proefrock, his top lieutenant. They both smirked. "No," Proefrock said, "we're trading Lee!" The Phillies do not possess many tradeable assets in their quest to remedy a 73-win team; Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee are two of the game's best lefthanded pitchers and would interest many teams.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Roy Halladay's decline, declaring for free agency and then sudden retirement on Monday was a stark reminder of a glaring hole that still remains on the Phillies' roster. The rotation still needs a replacement for Halladay, and starting pitching depth in general. So when rumors of the Phillies listening to trade offers for Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee swirled through the hallways and conference rooms at Walt Disney World's Swan and Dolphin Resort yesterday morning, it was pretty difficult to take them seriously.

Righthander Brad Lincoln, once a promising prospect after being selected fourth overall in the 2006 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates, has been acquired by the Phillies from the Toronto Blue Jays. The Phillies sent catcher Erik Kratz and lefthander Rob Rasmussen to Toronto in the deal, which was announced Tuesday night. Lincoln, 28, split his time between Toronto and triple-A Buffalo last season. He was 1-2 with a 3.98 ERA in 22 relief appearances with Toronto. Lincoln had 25 strikeouts and 22 walks in 312/3 innings.

NEW ORLEANS - It was a simple question. One that Jrue Holiday quickly answered. Before Saturday's game against the 76ers, the New Orleans Pelicans point guard was asked how long it took to get over being traded by the Sixers on draft night. "You want me to be honest?" Holiday said. "I'd probably say a couple minutes. I love my teammates over there. But they named off [Pelicans players] Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis, at the time there was Ryan Anderson, Jason Smith. " The 23-year-old already had relationships through basketball with Gordon, Smith, and Davis.

TEL AVIV - Mayor Nutter's whirlwind 10-day trade trip to London and this city came to an end Monday with an announced collaboration among Drexel University, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, as well as the possibility of a similar mission to Philadelphia by Israeli entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. The partnership of Drexel, Children's, and Hebrew University had been set in motion prior to Nutter's trip, but the discussed visit to Philadelphia by Israeli entities arose serendipitously during a meeting Sunday of the Philadelphia delegation and Israeli start-ups organized by Pitango Venture Capital group in Herzliya, a suburb of Tel Aviv.

The Flyers bolstered their sagging offense and weakened their penalty-killing unit Thursday, reacquiring feisty right winger Steve Downie by sending forward Max Talbot to Colorado. "We needed something to stir the pot," said general manager Paul Holmgren, whose 3-8 team has scored two goals or fewer in 10 of the first 11 games. Downie, 26, likes to stir things. A physical player, he has been suspended twice in his NHL career, and he is known as one of the league's top agitators.

The Eagles traded nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga to the New England Patriots before Tuesday's trade deadline. Sopaoga was packaged with a sixth-round pick for a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft. Sopoaga, 32, was signed in the offseason to be the team's starting nose tackle. He played eight games, had 18 tackles, and played 39 percent of the defensive snaps. Sopoaga made $3.25 million from the Eagles, including a $2.75 million signing bonus and half of his $1 million salary. Considering the output and the expense, Sopoaga's signing did not work out for the Eagles.

RALEIGH, N.C. - With the Flyers limping to an 0-3 start, the whispers are quickly growing louder and louder that jobs are on the line. No one has ever accused Flyers chairman Ed Snider of being a patient man. Is it possible that the Flyers would consider making a trade first? "I think we just need to breathe a little bit here," Claude Giroux said last night. "It's obviously not the way we wanted to start the season, but we're going to turn it around. There's no doubt in my mind.

PHILADELPHIA Trade unions have taken their dispute with developers Michael and Matthew Pestronk to a new level, producing a sleek documentary that accuses the brothers of safety and health violations at their signature project, the unfinished Goldtex building. The 20-minute documentary, unveiled Wednesday at a campaign-style event at the headquarters of electricians union Local 98, includes videos, photos, and interviews with two unidentified "undercover workers" at the job site, just north of Chinatown.
