The Philadelphia Phillies are a mess.  They have an aging team of former stars, but beyond that, they have injuries everywhere you look.  Every piece of good news is overshadowed by bad.  While Roy Halladay is progressing, Ryan Howard may not play again this season. Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly says Phillies' GM Ruben Amaro Jr. is not certain whether Ryan Howard will be able to come off the DL this year.  In fact, Howard has yet to swing a bat since undergoing knee surgery.  The season is quickly winding down, and Howard would have to make significant progress quickly if he was going to return. “I have no idea when or if he is going to be back this year,” Amaro said. “If he’s 100 percent and doing baseball activities, it’s possible. But there’s no reason to rush him back.” Howard underwent surgery on July 10th to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.  He has been on the disabled list since the beginning of July.  Initially, the team thought he just had a knee sprain, but it turned out to be worse when they sent him for an MRI.  The injury has cut short yet another season in Howard's unpredictable career. The three-time All-Star played 152 games in 2011, then he torn his achilles in the playoffs that year.  He played just 71 games last year, and to this point, he has only played 80 games this season.  It seemed Howard may have been getting his swing back before his hurt his knee.  He was hitting .266/.319/.465.  Unfortunately, this will be another setback and will make it even more difficult to get back to his MVP ways.
