You mean you didn't hear the news yet? Taveras was traded straight up for Ryan Howard earlier this morning. Quite the deal Walt worked out. The Phillies even threw in a brand new box of balls too.

Actually part of that is correct because Ryan Howard was out of the lineup over the weekend. I wonder if they meant to put the Phillies in there instead of the Reds?

Maybe he's the answer to our CF problem?

Ya know, with Joey Votto AND Ryan Howard at first base, I still can't believe the Reds drafted Yonder Alonso last year.

I think Ryan Howard can play third base.

I don't know if I see Ryan Howard being such a good fit in the clubhouse.
