Today's coverage for you to digest while you wonder how many aces the Phillies would have had to trade for Carmelo...

-- Cliff Lee is fine, and he spent a few minutes reassuring everyone as such.

-- Bob Bookover goes Inside the Phillies and notes this is a reminder of the risks the Phillies have taken with large contracts -- and that nothing is ever guaranteed.

-- Within today's notebook, we outline the spring rotation and what it could mean for the regular-season order.

-- Back home, Frank Fitzpatrick details financial troubles of the Philadelphia Athletics Historical Society as its members age. It would be neat if the Phillies stepped in and made some sort of donation or contribution drive around the time Oakland comes to town in June.
