Fact- The Howard Wins Ball Games

Another Howard, another win, this one in walk-off fashion. Way to own it big guy!

The Howard- a feat accomplished when a player hits a homerun, strikes out, and commits and error all in the same game.

Only 1 of the 3 criteria is something positive that would aid in winning a ball game (HR). However, WSBGMs has uncovered irrefutable evidence to prove that when a Phillie commits The Howard in a game it will inevitably end with a W for the good guys. The same cannot be said for the remaining 29 teams' players that commit The Howard, as it seems it's only Karmic retribution for the Phightins.

2010 Howards by Phillies:
Ryan Howard- April 7, Phils over Gnats 8-4
Ryan Howard- April 28, Phils over Giants 7-6.
Jayson Werth- May 6, Phils over Braves 7-2.
Chase Utley- May 14, Phils over Brew Crew 9-5.
Jimmy Rollins- June 23, Phils over Indians 7-6.
Ryan Howard- July 9, Phils over Red 9-7.

There's no denying, it's just meant to be. Last night sealed the deal. Down 7-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th, the Phils pulled off the improbable comeback (or as T-Mac would put it "magic"). The most amazing thing...Howard hit the homerun off of a dominate lefty (Arthur Rhodes).

I absolutely love lighting up Rhodes. Feels like such great vindication and retribution for the crap he gave us.

I think the cinder block pic should be replaced with a picture of Chuck Knoblauch or Steve Sax

Phils Phinally got some Rips in in the Bottom of the 8th.

They were caught or curved Phoul.

Maybe it's time for 3 Heartbreakers in a Row to go our way.

This 3 games walkoff-fest has put a smile on my face. This team was downright maddening to watch for most of the 1st half, and even most of the past 3 games, but they're heading into the All-Star break with some momentum now and that's gotta be a good thing right? Hopefully Ms. Hamels can keep it going today.
