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. If the Phils are still interested in trading anyone on their roster, they must be put on waivers, where the other 29 teams have an opportunity to claim that player, meaning they’d be on the hook for that player’s...

He had the requisite devastating, whiff-inducing secondary pitch as well as a solid fastball off of which to work. However, as we have seen time and again, possession of a promising pitch arsenal does not an elite reliever make. The proof is in the pudding or whatever...
