In an otherwise dismal season, Carlos Ruiz has been a godsend. If the Phils were in contention, Chooch would be a buzz name for NL MVP. As it turns out, wins have been few and far between in 2012 for the Phillies, but *twice this season a Phillie has performed The Howard (homerun, error, and strikeout all in same game) and the Phightins have gone onto win the contest. Last night Chooch pulled off the feat and of course the Phillies won.
*Jimmy Rollins went Howard earlier this year.
Now, I believe, is the time for the stat's namesake to do the deed. Let's root for a bomb in the thin Colorado air today from Ryan Howard, then his customary K and E to accompany it.
