Attention Ryan Howard haters. Dennis Deitch has all the details here. Howard is a favorite target for the fans' wrath, in no small part because of that massive contract he signed a few years back. Don't wait for me to join them. It's pretty simple. There is no World Series title, no parade, no end to our championship drought, with Howard in the middle of the Phils' lineup. I hope he goes off on one of those torrid summer streaks he used to treat us to seemingly each year. As for the haters, the quiet today no doubt will be deafening.
