All your Phillies coverage from today's Inquirer to read while you wonder what a phone call between Charlie Manuel and Albert Pujols would be like...

-- It was another pinch-me moment for this franchise, Bob Brookover writes, and the pitchers took the stage doing their best Beatles act.

-- In the made-for-TV introduction, one thing was clear: the pitchers aren't exactly ones for building up the hype around them.

-- Charlie Manuel does not want his contract extension to be a distraction. So is opening day a deadline for a new deal?

-- In today's notebook: It could have been awkward with Joe Blanton on stage, but the fifth starter handled himself well, even cracking a few jokes at his own expense.
