In this crazy week, when trade rumors are amplified and dissected with every passing second, the #Dodgers commanded the attention of their fans Tuesday with two words: “BREAKING NEWS.”

On the public address system. On the video board. In the second inning.

Surely this would be good news for the home team. David Price? Jon Lester? Cole Hamels?

Better, as it turned out. Way better.

Hyun-Jin Ryu delivered the news in Korean, and there was barely any reaction at Dodger Stadium. Yasiel Puig spoke in Spanish, and there was a little bit of buzz.

Then Justin Turner spoke in English, and the crowd erupted in a deafening roar and a lengthy standing ovation. #vinscully   #baseball

From USA TODAY

MLB deadline dulled by fear factor

We never learn. We keep falling in love with them. We just can't help ourselves. We see them from afar. Get to know them. And start dreaming, believing this will be the start of a beautiful relationship that lasts a lifetime. Ultimately, baseball prospects are more likely to break our heart. They are the most desirable commodity in baseball - the cheap date. It costs nothing to court them. Gives us time to believe in them. Oh, can they ever let us down. It's this blind faith that destroys teams at the non-waiver trade deadline, keeping them from going for the jugular, too frightened to take a chance. Teams are scoffing at the Philadelphia Phillies' asking price for ace Cole Hamels. They are calling it absurd that the Phillies had the gall to ask for center fielder Joc Pederson, shortstop Corey Seager and left-handed pitcher Julio Urias from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Ryan Howard's Contract is One of the Worst in MLB History

In 2003 the Philadelphia Phillies signed future Hall of Fame 1B Jim Thome from the Cleveland Indians and was instantly the face of a struggling franchise.  Thome hit 52 home runs in the 2002 season with Cleveland and would give the Phillies some much needed pop in their line up and a big name to usher in the new Citizens Bank Park.
  
In the 2003 season, Thome hit 47 home runs and won over the city of Philadelphia with his blue collar mentality and hard play.  In 2004, Thome had another massive year hitting .274, 42 HR’s and 105 RBI’s.  Not since Mike Schmidt had the Phillies had so much power in their line up.  But the Phillies had another big, powerful first baseman waiting his turn down in the minor leagues, the future of the franchise.  His name was Ryan Howard and the fans knew they needed some youth on the team if they ever expected to win in the future.

In 2005 Thome injured his elbow and it paved the way for Ryan Howard to showcase his skills to Philadelphia.  Howard played only 88 games in 2005 but it was enough to win the NL Rookie of the Year hitting .288, 22 HR’s and 63 RBI’s.  Phillies fans were happy and excited for the future.  The Phillies knew they had their first baseman of the future and they traded Jim Thome in November of 2005 to the Chicago White Sox.

In 2006 Ryan Howard emerged as one of the biggest start in Major League Baseball hitting .313, 58 HR’s and 148 RBI’s.  Let’s just say every pitcher in MLB feared pitching to Ryan Howard due to his tremendous power.  Howard made the NL All Star team, won the Home Run Derby, took home the Silver Slugger Award and won the NL MVP all in 2006.  The guy was an absolute beast.

In 2007 the Phillies had a great young core of players with Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley and Cole Hamels.  They made a push to the playoffs with a historic comeback in the NL East when they were down 7 games 2 1/2 weeks to go in September to the New York Mets.  The Mets imploded and the Phillies rose to the challenge.  The Phils went on to win the NL East in historic fashion and clinch their 1st playoff birth since 1993.  Howard ended 2007 with 47 HR’s but the Phillies lost to the Rockies in the NLDS.

In 2008 the Phillies picked up closer Brad Lidge, a much needed move to secure the back end of the bull pen.  Howard had another massive year with 48 HR’s and 146 RBI’s.  The Phillies got hot, red hot and won the NL East.  The Phillies had one of the best lineups in MLB.  They went on to beat the Brewers 3-1 in the NLDS and then beat the Dodgers 4-1 in the NLCS to win the NL Pennant and advance to the World Series.  

The Phils played the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008 World Series but the Rays were no match for the red hot Phillies.  The Phils won the World Series 4-1 and life was good for Ryan Howard and the fightin’ Phils. 
2009-2011 was no different for Ryan Howard and the Phillies.  They went back to the World Series in 2009 but lost to the Yankees.

Howard’s power numbers dipped a little starting in 2010 hitting 31 HR’s and 33 HR’s in 2011.  Two months into the 2010 season the Phillies and Ryan Howard agreed to a long term extension that would begin in 2012 worth 5 years, $125 million.  Only Alex Rodriguez had signed a contract worth more annually than Ryan Howard.
  
At the time this deal was set to begin, Ryan Howard was 30 years old and by MLB standards that would put you at the back end of your career.  Needless to say this was a very controversial contract to Philadelphia fans.

in 2011 the Phillies ended the regular season as the team to beat winning 102 games.  They were a big disappointment in the playoffs losing to the Cardinals in the NLDS in tragic fashion.  The last out of the NLDS was a softly hit ground ball by Ryan Howard.  On the swing, Howard went down in agony in the batters box.  Later tests showed that he had ruptured his a chillies and would be out for entire 2012 season.  A HUGE blow to the city of Philadelphia and to the Phillies.  Their $125 million dollar man was injured and unable to play.

Fast forward to 2014 and Ryan Howard’s contract has turned out to be one of the worst in history and has single handedly handcuffed the Phillies from making moves.  A man who was once thought of to go down as the best first baseman in franchise history is now getting booed at every at bat.  A man who was once penciled in to hit 40+ home runs before the season even started is now just hoping to get a base hit or get on base.
  
The Phillies still owe Howard $60 million over the next 2 seasons and have been rumored to of put the word out there that he is available.  Talk around Philadelphia is that they are trying to trade him or may just release him at the end of the season
.  
Any team interested in a soon to be 35 year old first baseman currently hitting .222, 16 HR’s, 62 RBI’s and has stuck out 123 times before the end of July?  Oh and by the way, he is an atrocious first baseman.  Didn’t think so!

Howard never recovered from the achilles injury and to watch him run the bases looks painful.  The only hope for Howard and the Phillies is for the Phils to eat some of his contract and trade him away to an AL team looking for a DH.  It has to be done in order for the Phillies to move on from this disaster.
  
The Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has been criticized for repeatedly signing older players on the back end of their career and for holding onto the core group of players that won them the World Series.  The only chance the Phillies have for the future is to dump Ryan Howard and fire Ruben Amaro Jr.  He has shown that he is not competent to make smart business decisions and no one in the city trusts him to make the right decisions for the future of the franchise.
 
The time has come to rebuild in Philadelphia but the only problem is their farm system is a mess.  There are virtually no players in the minors with such a high ceiling as Ryan Howard once had in Philadelphia.  This is a very bad position to be in and the only option is to trade away some of their current roster to rebuild for the future. 

It would be a tough time to be a Philadelphia Phillies fan watching your team that won 5 straight NL East titles from 2007 to 2011 dwindle away due to over priced contracts and under performing old players.  The Phillies window closed in 2011 and they probably should have won 1 if not 2 World Series with the teams they put on the field.  Things may have been different if in fact the Phillies won more than 1 World Series and the fans may have been a little easier on Howard and his struggles.  The city of Philadelphia will hail you like a hero when you play well and win.  Howard could have been a future Phillies icon if things would have played out differently.  

Who knows?  In 2018 when the Phillies celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the 2008 World Series they may give Ryan Howard a nice standing ovation. It wouldn’t surprise us at Handicapping Police.  However, the state of the franchise in 2018 will dictate a lot on whether he gets a hero’s welcome.  It’s just amazing how one player can be so valuable to a franchise and help them win a lot of games only to whither away with a massive contract that no team is willing take on for a broken down player.  Sports can be cruel but it just goes to show you how huge MLB contracts have changed the game and with guaranteed money the teams are guaranteed to almost always lose their shirts when the players get old and lose their value.
