RYAN HOWARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ryan Howard rips Phillies fan who threw beer bottle at him

What is undoubtedly Ryan Howard’s final season in Philadelphia continues to take a rather unfortunate turn. A Phillies fan threw a beer bottle at Howard as he was walking off the field after Saturday’s loss to Milwaukee, and Howard was none too happy with that. “I’ve done too much in this town to have that kind of stuff,” Howard said, via Matt Breen of Philly.com. ...

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...

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. A player can be deemed...

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...

Phillies reportedly willing to eat most of Howard's contract

By Jason Rowan If the most recent reports regarding the increasingly uncertain future of Ryan Howard remaining a member of the Philadelphia Phillies organization are any indication, the team is willing to do just about anything to part ways with him, including eating an enormous amount of his contract to effectuate said parting. Sports On Earth’s Anthony Castrovince reports...

Phillies GM apologizes to Ryan Howard for critical remarks

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro spoke with Ryan Howard recently to apologize for comments he made earlier in the offseason about the struggling first baseman. Back in December, Amaro, who was trying to trade Howard, said on the radio that he told Howard the team would be better off without him. “We’ve talked to Ryan. And I told him that in our situation it would probably bode better...

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...

The Curious and Sad Case of Ryan Howard

On an autumn night in 2011, as the St. Louis Cardinals won the deciding game of the NLDS, a cataclysmic moment occurred in the career of Philadelphia Phillies’ slugger Ryan Howard. A city’s hope rested with Howard, his team down by just one run with ace Roy Halladay on the mound, the most-beloved lefty in Philadelphia since Steve Carlton was at the dish with two outs remaining...

Ryan Howard will accept trade to nine teams

By NESN Staff Not that any such deal would ever happen, but if the Boston Red Sox were to have trade interest in Ryan Howard, they would be in luck. The Red Sox are one of only nine teams the Philadelphia Phillies “slugger” can be traded to without his consent, ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick reported Tuesday, citing a source familiar with Howard’s contract. That means two-thirds...
