The Ryan Howard Delusions

Ryan Sandberg on not playing Darin Ruf in the second game with the Angels in Anaheim last night: "I can see what [Ruf] can do on the defensive side of things. I think he's fine in left field. I think he's very good at first base, but with the situations...

Outfield Shakeup In Near Future As Darin Ruf Is Activated While Sizemore Deadline Looms
