RYAN HOWARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ryan Howard and the Shift: An Analysis

PHOTO: AP The Big Piece. Ryan Howard has given us plenty of great moments over the years–from game winning monster home runs to “get me to the plate, boys”. Ruben Amaro Jr. awarded him with a monster contract that has since been proven to be one of the biggest mistakes he’s made as Phillies GM due to a tremendous drop in production from the lefty slugger. But this isn’t...

A commentary on character...and Ryan Howard

Now that Monday's loss to the Braves has mostly scabbed over, I wanted to look back at the game through a different lens. Monday could have been a harbinger of things to come and a loss that will send the Phillies down an inevitable losing path or it could be used as a character builder. Supposedly high character teams would view such a devastating loss as an opportunity...

Three Phillies Make the List of Highest Paid Athletes

The Philadelphia Phillies have a pretty big payroll; this much we know. Their $180,052,723 payroll is good for the third highest in baseball. So with a high payroll comes some pretty high individual salaries, of course. Some of those contracts are among the highest in all of sports. ESPN.com recently posted a list of the top 25 highest paid athletes in the world and three Phillies...

Howard with a Howard, Oh Yeah!

You know it's a good day when Ryan Howard notches a Howard.  That's right, the stat's namesake earned himself his first strikeout, error, homerun game of the season and naturally the Phillies won.  Not only did the Phillies win, they swept the series from the Marlins and are now 6-6 on the year.What else is good?*Chase Utley is batting .500, word.*Wil Nieves had more...

Cole Hamels to return to Phillies April 22nd?

The Philadelphia Phillies have been waiting on Cole Hamels to return to the rotation from a biceps injury, and his return could be coming very close. According to reports, Hamels could rejoin the Phillies’ rotation on April 22nd. That return date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it certainly is an encouraging sign to see dates beginning to pop up. Cole Hamels pitched 6 strong for...

Ryan Howard: Phillies have played very well this year

The Philadelphia Phillies have started the season 3-6 and are in last place in the NL East. Considering they finished the 2013 season with a 73-89 record, very few people are surprised. One person isn’t discouraged by the slow start, however. A certain optimist actually thinks the Phillies are playing well. You know him as […]

Ryan Howard thinks that the Phillies have played well this year

“In all actuality we’ve actually played very well this year. I disagree with everybody else. Our record doesn’t necessarily reflect that right now, but, you know, we’ve played well. We had three real bad games. So the only thing to do is go out there and try to win again.” -Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard, just hours before the Brewers beat the Phillies 6-2 to sweep...

Ryan Howard: Let’s Not Panic Yet

Ryan Howard has not had the most impressive start to the season. Through eight games, Howard is hitting just .212 with an NL leading 13 strikeouts. Although he says the leg is healthy, Howard has been able to muster just one home run heading into Thursday’s game. When being asked if he’s at all worried about how he has played, as well as the team, Howard shot back a bit: “Its...

First Howard of the Season

You might think that we here at WSBGMs would be celebrating the Phillies first win of the season.  We are.  But, more importantly, we are celebrating the first Howard of the 2014.  Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants' Brandon Belt on belting a homerun, striking out, and committing an error all in the same game.  Doubtful he remains on top all season long, but for...

Ryan Howard suffering from spin Slidis Unrecognitis Syndrome

Ryan Howard has reportedly been diagnosed with Slidis Unrecognitis Syndrome. SUS is a condition in which a baseball player is unable to recognize a slider and in serious cases removes the ability of a player to recognize the type or location of any pitch. Howard's SUS existed his entire life but remained dormant until the 2010 season.  Of course I’m kidding here, but the...
