Dugout Digest – the cycle that wasn’t

Ryan Howard nearly hit for the cycle on Sunday. Hell, he should have had it – needing just a double, he hit a ball that fell in front of Rockies right fielder Brandon Barnes and skipped past him, allowing Howard to reach second base. He had it! But the official scorekeeper called it a single and an error on Barnes, leaving Howard with “just” a four hit game, and still needing...

Phillies Avoid Sweep with Wild Win at Coors

The Phillies held on for a wild 10-9 win at Coors Field to avoid a sweep by the Rockies. -Ryan Howard went 4-for-5, coming thisclose to hitting for the cycle. His fourth hit was called a single and an error by rightfielder Brandon Barnes. Close call, but I think it was the right one. Good to see him get his stroke going, but will it last? -Marlon Byrd knocked in two runs, but also...

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...

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...

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...
