Ryan Howard & Carlos Ruiz clear waivers

Both players can be traded by the Phils to any team. Here it is, August 24, and we hadn’t heard anything about any Phillies clearing revocable waivers this month.

Phillies manager: There’s no hiding Ryan Howard is having a terrible year

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has been with the team since 2004, and given his struggles at the plate over the last few years, it’s a wonder he hasn’t been traded or released by now. Howard is hitting just .153 so far this season, and his on-base percentage is even worse (.214). In comparison, back in 2006 which was arguably his best year, he hit .313 with...

Ryan Howard: The Unwanted Man

By Shaun Ranft 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.
