RYAN HOWARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Offense erupts to back Nola as Phills sweep Cubs

On a Sunday afternoon in late July in front of a sold out crowd, Ryan Howard homered and the Phillies’ offense scored 11 runs on 17 hits with a 22-year-old future ace on the mound, making only his second Major League start. It felt like 2006 all over again, except the 22-year-old was Aaron Nola, not Cole Hamels, and the sold out crowd was there to cheer on their hometown Cubs,...

You remember the offseason that was. It was the offseason in which the Phillies said outright they’d be better off without Ryan Howard.

There are several variations of “the talk.” As a young adult, it may be about when two people love each other very much. As someone who is just graduating from college, it likely pertains to what you are going to do with the rest of your life.
