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.

Ryan Howard: Let’s Not Panic Yet

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...
