Odds and Ends: Ryan Howard for MVP


Last night, Ryan Howard tied Mike Schmidt atop the Phillies all time Home Run single season list with 48. As people have been prediction for a while, it was an inevitability. There was a time (right around the Bobby Abreu trade) that the only reason to watch the Phillies was Ryan Howard and Chase Utley. Now the Phillies are within 1/2 a game of the wild card and serious consideration needs to be given to Ryan Howard for MVP. More praise for Howard in the blogosphere here and here.
