Ah, no they didn't.

Earlier today, whoever runs the Phillies’ Twitter account got a little confused as to what the $125 million gigantic limping first baseman who's been here for like 8 years looks like.

Simple mistake, I suppose.

Shane Victorino quickly LOLd at his club’s Tweet, pointing out that the black man on the right was not Ryan Howard– it was newcomer Juan Pierre, who is listed at around five inches shorter and 65 lbs. lighter than Howard.

To be fair, it does sort of look like Howard. But skinny 2010-2011 Howard, not current fat Howard, which, by the way, is the best kind of Howard (2004-2009). Or Pierre is just jacked… actually, yeah– that. Go on with your bad self, Juan.

  1. If you had given me that picture and asked who it was at first glance, I would definitely have said Howard. Even his stance is similar. Phillies PR guy should know a little better though.
