RYAN HOWARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Five former MLB superstars who have overstayed their welcomes

Because of the sport’s guaranteed contracts, MLB is probably the most player-friendly of all the leagues. Unfortunately, the guaranteed contracts make it easy for veterans well past their primes to continue to get paid huge money, draining a good portion of the team’s budget. When this happens, teams and fans of said teams begin to get upset any time those guys are even mentioned...

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

If the most recent reports regarding the increasingly uncertain future of Ryan Howard remaining a member of the Philadelphia Phillies organization is 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.

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...
