Ryan Howard has been a complete bust since signing his extension. Injuries, inability to hit lefties, plummeting OPS, shoddy defense, albatross of a contract, base-jamming "speed", etcetera. His latest ailment will keep him out of action for 6-8 weeks (at least we get to watch Darin Ruf). WSBGMs warned everyone of this upon Amaro's jumping of the gun to sign Howard before it was necessary. He's a large bodied man and swift decline and nagging injuries are a common theme among other like bodied individuals. I know as Phans it is difficult to hear/read the truth, but dammit we told you so! In other news, the Phillies won again and John Lannan didn't pitch like a steaming pile if poop. Go Phillies!
