CLEARWATER, Fla. — All is quiet at the Phillies complex on the eve of the first formal workout. Most of the pitchers and catchers are here. Some threw long toss. Others spent the morning in the weight room.

Jonathan Papelbon just finished tossing with Joel Pineiro and will address the media shortly. Papelbon, not surprisingly, has drawn a large media crowd from Boston and New York.

Roy Halladay, per usual, got his work in early. He left around 10:30 a.m. in one of his latest projects. Halladay is a car enthusiast and dabbles in restoring muscle cars.

Yes, he's smiling.
