As if the Phillies didn't have enough problems, yesterday they lost the services of rightfielder Von Hayes and shortstop Dickie Thon. Hayes was injured in a freak accident in his Delaware County home Thursday afternoon and placed on the 15-day disabled list. Thon was suspended for three games and fined $1,000 by the National League for making physical contact with home-plate umpire Terry Tata in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The suspension began last night. Hayes suffered a severe cut on the little finger of his left hand on a physical-fitness machine in his basement.

Sorely missed and still a little sore, Von Hayes, the Phillies' leader in RBIs and home runs, was back in the lineup for last night's game against the Chicago Cubs, which was postponed because of rain at 11:02. The game will be made up today as part of doubleheader, starting at 5:35 p.m. Bad luck for the Phillies. Good luck for the Cubs. At 9:04, when the rain delay began, the Phils were leading, 2-0, with one out in the top of the fifth. Marvin Freeman, the Phillies starter, was pitching wonderfully.

Who says Phillies fans are heartless? Sure, they booed and badgered Von Hayes all last season. But that's all in the past. They love Hayes now. Why, the mere mention of his name at an off-season banquet is enough to spark a tremendous ovation. Of course, this probably has something to do with the December trade of Hayes to the California Angels. On Tuesday, Phillies fans crowded into brightly lit dining rooms in Trenton and Allentown for an off-season glimpse at their heroes.

Late tomorrow afternoon, Phillies general manager Lee Thomas will board a plane at Philadelphia International Airport. Destination: Chicago. Mission: Impossible? "I'm not going there to sit in a hotel room," Thomas was saying the other day as he prepared for baseball's annual winter meetings. "I'm not going just to sit in on the sessions. "We're going to try to make an effort to get something done. " Winter meetings in the first week of December are as much a seasonal rite of the summer game as spring training and the Fall Classic.

The home run is such an outstanding feature of baseball, one that gets right to the big-league game's urban core: Knock one out, and you've taken it downtown. The Phillies have hit only 11 homers this season, but two of them came in yesterday afternoon's 4-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Riverfront Stadium, which is just across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati. Von Hayes, the lefty who was mired in frustration after Monday night's loss to the Reds, snapped a 2-2 tie with one out in the seventh when he lifted a 1-2 pitch from southpaw reliever Tim Birtsas over the right-field fence for a bases-empty home run. Two batters later, John Kruk, another lefthanded hitter, took a two-out, full-count Birtsas fastball downtown, or at least into the right-field bleachers.

The condition of Von Hayes' bruised and sore right foot appears to be serious. Yesterday, he did not dress and Phillies manager Nick Leyva said there was virtually no chance that the rightfielder, who leads the Phillies in homers and RBIs, would play in the three-game home series against the Montreal Expos that begins today. Leyva said his worst fear was that the Phillies will need to put Hayes on the 15-day disabled list. Leyva and general manager Lee Thomas plan to discuss that possibility today after talking to physicians.

You can say what you wish about the Five-for-One Man, Von Hayes. But there is one thing you can't deny: This guy definitely gets around. Hayes has orbited the baseball field so much as a Phillie, they ought to make him an honorary member of NASA. Last spring training, he was a first baseman. This spring training, he checked in as a leftfielder. Now, it appears, he is about to be pointed toward yet another destination. Would you believe right field? His latest Phillies tour guide, Nick Leyva, says he is strongly considering moving Hayes from left to right.

Von Hayes was the last remnant of a bygone Phillies era, an era of pennants and thrills and cheers. And now he's gone. Once, Hayes played in a World Series with Pete Rose and Steve Carlton. He played with Tug McGraw and Mike Schmidt, not to mention Fred Toliver and John Wockenfuss. He saw Dave Stewart come and go. He watched Pat Corrales get fired as manager with the Phillies in first place. He remembers when Jeff Stone and Joe Cowley and Phil Bradley were all going to be The Answer to all the Phillies' troubles.

It is quiet, and at first glance, things look pretty much the same. The first official spring training workout for Phillies pitchers and catchers isn't until tomorrow. The rest of the squad isn't due for another week. Ground crews leisurely turn and smooth the dirt at the Carpenter Complex. Workers touch up the paint at Jack Russell Stadium. These are humdrum routines, played out each spring. As usual, small groups of early arrivals dot the palm-fringed landscape. Here, Gus Hoefling works out a few pitchers.

Raul Ibanez remained in the Phillies lineup Friday night despite a .169 batting average and an 0-for-26 slump that included a hitless seven-game road trip. (Ibanez went 0 for 4 in the game, and his average dropped to .161.) Whenever a player of an advanced age - Ibanez is 38 and a little more than a month from 39 - struggles, it's natural to wonder whether his problems are simply a by-product of getting old. Asked about this issue, manager Charlie Manuel had an amusing answer.

Tell us what you have in the way of unusual, obscure and just peculiar sports memorabilia. So, whatcha got? Perhaps your grandfather passed down to you a piece of the goalpost from the Eagles' win in the 1960 championship game, or your great-grandfather had a collar that was once worn by Connie Mack. Or, perhaps it was something you came into possession on your own: a cancelled check endorsed by Wilt Chamberlain or a bar tab signed by one of the old Stanley Cup champion Flyers.

Von Hayes excused himself for being tired. The Camden Riversharks manager was coming off a tough weekend series in Lancaster, and that had little to do with the play on the field. The Riversharks bused 80 miles to Lancaster, and this being the independent minor leagues, with no funding from a major-league parent club, they took that journey six times rather than book a hotel. Round trips for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night games. Leave around 1:30 in the afternoon, get back around that time the next morning, and do it three straight days.

1990: Lenny Dykstra turned into the kind of leadoff hitter the Phillies felt they had acquired the previous season from the New York Mets. The guy known as "Nails" batted .325 and led the National League with a .418 on-base percentage. He tied for first in the league with 192 hits and stole 33 bases. In their first full season without Mike Schmidt, the Phillies couldn't find anyone to drive Dykstra home with consistency. Von Hayes led the team in RBIs that season with only 73. But Dykstra, when healthy, showed he could be one of the majors' best table-setters, and would have an even better season in the World Series year of 1993.

Michael Jack Schmidt strongly backed Charlie Manuel's benching of Jimmy Rollins last week. In fact, the three-time MVP thinks Manuel's action may have a positve trickle-down effect. "No hustle, no play," Schmidt wrote in a column for the Associated Press. "Charlie Manuel wrote it in stone for all of you. From this day forward, any player who doesn't run hard on a for-sure out is fair game. "That might even mean you, Manny [Ramirez]. Terry Francona might now be held to a higher standard.

Julio no longer down by the ballyard After 26 years of haunting the Phillies, Julio Franco has retired from baseball at the age of 49. Franco, who last played in the majors in 2007, announced his retirement on Wednesday while playing for the Quintana Roo Tigers of the Mexican League. He played 23 seasons in the majors for eight teams and became the oldest player to hit a home run, last season at age 48. His first career hit was as a Phillie in 1982. The organization sent Franco to the Cleveland Indians in the infamous five-for-one trade that brought Von Hayes to Philadelphia.

Sports pages, talk radio and bars are full of arguments about overrated and underrated athletes. Two Philly-area sports journalists are in the fray with new books. ESPN's Sal Paolantonio , an Inquirer alum (and author of the seminal Frank Rizzo bio from 1991), is a couple of months from unleashing The Paolantonio Report , which dissects pro football teams and athletes, based on his interviews with experts. The 1985 Chicago Bears went 15-1 and won the Super Bowl, but were nonetheless overrated, according to Sal Pal. Any Eagles in there?

To Phillies: VON HAYES For a time, it appeared that the Phillies would get exactly what they expected from Hayes. In 1985, he became the first player in history to hit two homers in the first inning of a game. In 1986, he batted .305 with 107 runs scored, 46 doubles, 98 RBI and finished eighth in the NL MVP balloting. For that, he was given a then-princely 3-year, $3.9 million contract. Although he made his only All-Star team in 1989, he never approached that level of success again.

The Baltimore Orioles continued their off-season shopping spree yesterday, signing free-agent catcher Javy Lopez to a three-year deal worth a reported $22 million. Baltimore already had signed shortstop Miguel Tejada, the 2002 American League MVP, to a $72 million, six-year contract. Lopez, 33, hit .328 last season for Atlanta, with 43 home runs and 109 RBIs - career highs. Bledsoe-to-Schilling handoff. Newly signed Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is buying the 20-room, 26-acre estate in Medfield, Mass.
