RYAN HOWARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joseph, Howard both able to start in Detroit

First baseman Tommy Joseph earned his first trip to the Major Leagues on May 13 after four years in the Phillies' system. But it's been difficult for manager Pete Mackanin to find playing time for him, even with Ryan Howard struggling at the plate. With the Phils at Comerica Park for an Interleague series, Joseph got the nod at first base Monday against the Tigers, while Howard started...

Vin Scully blasts Ryan Howard after Howard ties Joe DiMaggio

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard tied Joe DiMaggio for 81st on baseball’s all-time home run list Friday night. DiMaggio is a Hall of Famer and considered one of the greatest MLB players to ever play. Ryan Howard — not so much. And just in case you forgot that Howard will never be in the same class as DiMaggio no matter how many home runs he hits, legendary broadcaster Vin...

Necessary Moves: Ryan Howard, Philadelphia Phillies

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective and made up solely of notable names.

Is Ryan Howard’s tenure with the Phillies over?

In a season where Philadelphia Phillies fans have been more excited for the season to end than for it to start, pieces of the team’s past glory have been fading into obscurity and/or wearing different uniforms. With Cole Hamels traded to the Texas Rangers, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley now in Los Angeles playing for the Dodgers, and Ruben Amaro, Jr. recently jobless, the only...

Is Ryan Howard actually valuable again?

I know you’ve probably heard this before, but the Philadelphia Phillies are not a good baseball team. Sure, they are only seven games out of the first place Washington Nationals, but when one of your best hitters is Freddy Galvis, you know you’re in trouble. However, there is a player on the Phillies who has seemed to emerge from three-year long slump, someone who is somehow...

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. As an athlete, though, it’s unlikely to fill a person with hope or inspiration. It’s almost always about an organization...

Have the Phillies found a suitor for Ryan Howard?

The Philadelphia Phillies desperately want to move Ryan Howard, even if they have to eat the large majority of his contract and get not much of anything in return. They may have found a suitor – the 2014 AL champion Kansas City Royals. DH Billy Butler is a free agent this winter, and Kansas City could want to replace him with Howard, a native Missourian.
