Ryan Howard was the Big Piece in the Phillies rise to the World Series Championship.
The last brutha in this town to make over $100 million became the arguably the greatest player in the franchise’s history and set a standard that will stand for years before he was unceremoniously traded to a grateful rival. Pretty self serving for a franchise that still dreams about that float ride down Broad Street.
Unlike Donovan McNabb, Ryan Howard has an MVP and World Series title to his credit, as for that $125 million extension he recently signed – well let’s just say that those once appreciative guppies have just turned into a school of piranhas waiting to skeletonize Philly’s newest cash cow.
Could he become the Dick Allen of our lifetime?
