Ryan Howard Benching Could Be Beginning Of The End

This has not been the best year for a number of members of the Phillies. The team is working to keep its collective head above water and with each passing day, the prime years of the core seem like a greater distant memory. That feeling holds true for Ryan Howard in particularly.

“The Big Piece,” has not been himself this season. He really has not been his “old self,” for much of the last three seasons as he has suffered and rehabbed several injuries.

The Phillies have been unable to rely on Howard the way they have in past years. That was no more evident than on Tuesday night when the Phillies fell to the Giants in 14 innings. Howard had an opportunity with a man on third and one out to give the Phillies the victory and he fittingly struck out.

It seems like the door is almost closed for Howard’s tenure as a Phillie. Speculation runs rampant and there is no way to know for sure what the brass is thinking, but the signs do not look good.
