Ryan Howard will be hitting cleanup for the Philadelphia Phillies when he makes his season debut Friday night.The former NL MVP has been sidelined the entire season after rupturing his left Achilles tendon while making the final out in Philadelphia's loss to St. Louis in Game 5 of the NL division series last October. He's missed 84 games."It feels good. I'm ready to go and get back in the swing of things," Howard said.Howard played in seven minor league games and went 10 for 20 with a home run. He'll be back at first place for the first time when the last-place Phillies open a three-game set against Atlanta.
He certainly didn't provide a spark. I was shocked that the Braves swept them, especially after a 5-5 homestand, and losing 2 out of 4 to the Cubs. Then go to Philly and sweep them? Good as a Braves fan. But, definitely wonder whats up with Philly. Not that I am complaining. :)
