Charlie Manuel's decision to allow Roy Halladay to throw 132 pitches in a complete-game loss to the Pirates on Tuesday prompted some questions about the righthander's workload this season. He has thrown more pitches and more innings in his first nine starts than in any other season. Manuel acknowledged that he and pitching coach Rich Dubee need to monitor their usage of Halladay, who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Red Sox. "His next outing, I don't want to see him throw 125 pitches, because I feel like over the course of a year, it can definitely wear him down," Manuel said.

There are many theories on why Phillies ace Curt Schilling is on the disabled list with a sore right shoulder. They all seem to lead back to the tremendous workload he has carried since returning from shoulder surgery in May 1996. "He's pitched almost 900 innings on a post-op shoulder," Phils trainer Jeff Cooper said after Schilling was placed on the disabled list Friday night. "He's had back-to-back 250-inning seasons. It might be time to put him in the shop and clean him up. " Yesterday, manager Terry Francona acknowledged that Schilling had carried a heavy load.

Based on what Terrell Owens has done in practice this week, it seems unlikely that the wide receiver will have the same workload in Super Bowl XXXIX that he did before he went down with a fractured right leg and severe ankle sprain in December. "He probably went about a third of the plays," coach Andy Reid said following practice yesterday at the University of North Florida. "We gave him a little more work than we gave him the last couple of days, and we'll give him more tomorrow depending on how he feels.

As Brad Lidge made the long walk from the bullpen to the pitcher's mound for the ninth inning of Sunday's game against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park, the crowd's reaction seemed a combination of encouragement and trepidation. No doubt, the perspiration on many of the fans was from more than just the hot, sunny day as Lidge prepared to protect the Phillies' one-run lead. The first stress alert came when Josh Thole began the inning by floating a single over the head of second baseman Wilson Valdez.

Jake Diekman has a number in mind. The Phillies lefthander understands why he may not reach it. When the team's brain trust informed some of their young relievers they would not pitch with the same frequency in September, it was not punishment. So Diekman, who needs nine more appearances to achieve his 75-game target, is willing to adapt. "If you need a day off," Diekman said, "you just need to tell them. " That is a culture the Phillies are happy to create among their burgeoning arms.

Citing an increased workload in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the American Civil Liberties Union of Philadelphia said this week that it was temporarily delaying a lawsuit against Chester County over free speech and religion. Stefan Presser, legal director of the ACLU, said the proposed lawsuit, which would seek to remove the Ten Commandments plaque that hangs on the county courthouse in West Chester, eventually would go forward. "Since Sept. 11, the world has changed a little bit and we've been absolutely swamped," Presser said.

Johnny Cueto, right, has been one of the top righthanders in the league this season, but the 24-year-old rarely lasts longer than six innings. Mike Leake is a 22-year-old rookie who recently has shown signs the workload may be taking a toll. Depending on two pitchers that young in October could be risky. Bronson Arroyo is a solid professional who is heading toward his seventh consecutive season with more than 30 starts. He was an NL all-star in 2006 and pitched in 10 postseason games for the Red Sox, eight of them in relief, before going to Cincinnati.

EYE IN THE SKY SAVES MEN AT SEA An eagle-eyed British Airways flight attendant helped to save three American fishermen when she happened to glance out a window and spotted their ship blazing 34,000 feet below in the North Atlantic. Jane Savage told reporters that she was on a flight from London to New York on Friday when the clouds suddenly parted to reveal smoke rising from the water. She told the pilot of the Boeing 747, who tuned to an emergency channel, picked up an automatic SOS beacon and contacted U.S. authorities, who sent a helicopter to pluck the men from a life raft 100 miles off Massachusetts.

Thoughts thought while considering that Jack Paar's best joke Monday on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" referred to an edition of "Late Show with David Letterman," which most "Tonight" viewers wouldn't have seen for themselves: Laryngitis may have kept Johnny Carson from speaking when he showed up on Letterman last week, but he said plenty. Everybody is making a big deal about "The Arsenio Hall Show" and "L.A. Law" calling it quits after this season. What about the fact that Chuck Woolery's "Love Connection" won't be "back in two and two"?

Three weeks into DeMarco Murray's demotion, it's no longer surprising when he is not the Eagles' leading ballcarrier. But his role has never been as minimal as it was in the 40-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, when Murray played only eight of 64 offensive snaps and touched the ball twice. This is not what Murray expected when he signed a five-year, $40 million contract in March. It's not what the Eagles expected, either. It's the situation they are in, though, because coach Chip Kelly has made clear that he won't try to placate the high-priced running back.

The increasing questions over how Chip Kelly - no, Duce Staley - plans to distribute snaps at running back may be moot this Sunday, in particular at the top if Ryan Mathews is sidelined with a groin injury. Mathews didn't practice on Thursday. He has taken a curious route to being questionable for the Cowboys after having perhaps his best game of the season in the Eagles' loss to the Panthers on Oct. 25. On Tuesday after a light practice, Mathews told reporters that he would play in Dallas.

Chip Kelly said Monday that Ryan Mathews suffered a groin injury in the Eagles' 27-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers, which affected the running back's playing time. Mathews had six carries for 97 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown rush during which he apparently ran with the injury. That was Kelly's explanation for running backs coach Duce Staley limiting Mathews' workload. "Ryan was hurt yesterday," Kelly said. "When I talked to Duce about it, and we talk about it all the time, Ryan hurt his groin on a 22-yard run before he broke the long run and really couldn't go. Duce was monitoring him on the sideline, what he could do and what he couldn't do. So I think Duce does a great job with those guys.

DeMarco Murray's on-again, off-again practice schedule is not his decision. It's Chip Kelly's decision. Kelly made that clear on Friday, when he said he's trying to manage Murray's workload after the high-priced running back led the NFL in carries last season. Kelly said Murray is not injured. "He's coming along," Kelly said. "He's done a lot of different things. We're trying to get him acclimated. He also carried the ball more than anybody in the National Football League last year, so we are trying to integrate him into what we are doing.

PHOENIX - While he was with the Phillies and publicly pleading for a new home, Jonathan Papelbon maintained that he didn't check other teams' box scores to monitor closers around the majors. But if he did so over the last two weeks, he might have come away a tad jealous of a former teammate. The resurgent Phillies have kept Papelbon's successor busy. In only his first 12 games as the team's closer, Ken Giles was afforded six save opportunities. Papelbon, conversely, entered in save situations a mere 17 times over 100 games before he was traded to the Washington Nationals on July 28. Given the second-place Nationals' recent struggles - they entered Monday's series opener at Dodger Stadium with three wins in their last 10 games and six in their previous 17 - Papelbon came into the week with only two save opportunities with his new team.

Cary Williams is tired and says he isn't the only one. The Eagles cornerback isn't tired from the games. He's tired from the daily grind of practice and the pace coach Chip Kelly demands when the team is preparing. Williams made his assertion that the coaching staff didn't look out for the well-being of the players on an afternoon when the Eagles pulled out another crazy win to improve to 3-0, and an afternoon in which the highlight play of the day for Washington came as former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson beat Williams on a deep post route for an 81-yard touchdown.

In many instances, the charm of watching smaller-enrollment schools is seeing an athlete or two carry a heavy workload, because of a lack of depth or that player's extraordinary ability. Once in a while, one of those herculean workloads is handled by both teams, and that was clearly the case in a winner-take-all contest Saturday night. In a game in which both offenses were at peak form, Gloucester outlasted host Pennsville, 48-42, to clinch the West Jersey Football League Classic Division football title.

IF THEY GAVE out an award for such a thing, Antonio Bastardo would be the MVP of the Phillies' bullpen. So it was with mild alarm the other day when Charlie Manuel indicated he would shut down Bastardo for a little while. Nothing serious, the manager insisted, the kid's prized left arm is just a little tired. Bastardo, pitching in his first full major league season, had thrown 53 1/3 innings and opponents were hitting a miserable .110, best mark of any National League reliever.
