48 Popozaos Later: Howard In The Record Books

30 Aug

Last night Ryan Howard tied Mike Schmidt for the Phillies single-season record for dingers.  Little more needs to be written about how great this accomplishment is, and also how Howard has evolved into a monster at the plate.  The comparisons have mostly floated towards David Ortiz and Willie Stargell, but I tend to view Howard as a young Jim Thome.  Both hit to all fields, both hit for a good average, and both have had 40 homer seasons for the Phillies.

Perhaps the Phils can ride Howard to the playoffs.  The NL is completely watered down and horrible this year, so maybe 84 wins nabs a Wild Card.  Oh joy?
