WSBGM's Salute: Ryan Howard


This honor has been a long time coming for the sophomore Ryan "Mammoth" Howard. In this, our 1st ever salute here at WSBGM"s, I have chosen the gigantic Phillies 1st basemen to bestow it upon. He was the NL ROY last season, was the All-Star homerun derby champ this year, may end up being the MVP, and he can flat-out CRUSH the ball. He now has 39 hr coupled with 101 rbi...#"s I would have been satisfied with for an entire season...we still have about 50 games to go. This guy is a reason to tune into Philadelphia Phillies baseball every night. And if you can't watch it live, Tivo it, and watch his powerful swing swat balls over the fence time and time again.

Ryan Howard is fast becoming the King of Philly. Give him the keys!

Welcome to the blog BloodStripes. Hope you enjoy.

Ryan Howard can become King of Philly with Utley as his squire.

The scary thing about Howard is that her is putting up these huge numbers, and hitting his HR's in key spots, while still making second year player mistakes. What is Howard going to be like from this point onward. The guy's amazing.

GM-Carson said...

The most impressive thing to me about Howard is his opposite fielder power...astonishing!

its amazing that the eagles are by far the most popular team in Philly but both Howard and Utley are far more popular than any eagles' players.

As long as Howard can correct his fielding errors (and there have been far too many), all will be good.

GM-Carson said...

Howard is the NL version of Big Papi...and Howard still has room to grown (not in size, but ability/production).

It's a Beer Leaguer invasion!

Thanks for the welcome Corey & Carson. Nice place. While i'm here, I should salute Howard once again.

Big man, you are the king. Keep producing bro!

I welcome everyone to this blog. If you have any friends you think would enjoy our take on Phillies baseball, then pass the word!

Tough loss last night, once again hurt by not making plays.

Either one is fine for you to link to - but the Plethora blog is probably the better one: http://losrulz-plethora.blogspot.com

Hey this is cool. I found it at a blog you have a link to. 'Huge tiny mistake'. Some new slang for a Ryan Howard home run.

"Popozao".

You can just hear Scott Graham call it.

"Here's the pitch. Howard hits one to deep left center, the outfielder's movin' back to the track, looking up, can't get there, that ball is gone. "Popozao!” Grand slam home run Ryan Howard.

Put this one in the win column for the Fightin' Phils
