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.
