Ryan Howard Needs Knee Surgery, Out 6-8 Weeks

Kyle Scott - July 8, 2013

Sadly, it might be time to break out the Rascal again.

Ryan Howard has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will need surgery. He’ll be out 6-8 weeks.

The Phillies’ are dying a slow and horrible death.

    Somewhere Marcus Haye’s is still saying Utley’s contract is worse.

      If you’re going to be crude, at least pretend to have a command of 6th grade grammar.

      You think Howard’s wife’s parents were ashamed of her?

    This is bigger than his meniscus – they will repair it thinking thats the answer – and nothing will change. It’s the next step in his cycle of piss poor biomechanics – torn achilles – rely on knee – knee goes – rely on hip – hip/low back goes next. It’s a shame but that’s what the progression is. Clear as day if you know what you’re looking at.

      Funny, I tore up my right knee, had surgery with art bartolozzi in philly, and was back on the wrestling mat in a few months. besides the fact that it’s totally gay, i show no ill effects with regard to my hips or my back or even my other knee, sooooo i don’t know what the fuss is all about. you trying to get Ryno on Workers’ Comp??

    I can see Ryan Howard’s half Caucassian son looking out the window masturbating to his stepmom sunbathing

    A maximum eight week post-surgery stint would mean Howard’s out until mid-September, and that’s if nothing else goes wrong. Screw it, might as well keep him out for the rest of the season which has been a lost cause since May.

    Phils still win the division.

  • Andy Schreiber July 8, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Good! Let the big guy heal up properly!

    And let’s see what Ruf can do!

    Can we talk about the idiotic picks Wright just made for the NL HR Derby team?

    • Junkhead July 8, 2013 at 7:14 pm

      It’s hard to judge because we don’t know what guys refused to participate. The home run contest is getting like the slam dunk contest. The divas don’t want to do it.
      And some guys hit bombs in batting practice but don’t hit many in actually games. Apparently Ichiro Suzuki hits one bomb after another in batting practice but he doesn’t hit many in games. I read that in Seattle, Ichiro would consistently beat Griffey, Jr. in home run contests they had in batting practice.

        Apparently, Wheels agrees with you. He spent a good five minutes during the bottom of the first yammering about how some players are batting practice titans but can’t hit homers for shit in the actual games.

        • Wheels' Toupée July 9, 2013 at 12:24 pm

          no shit, right? wheels was jerking that shit off for probably two innings.

  • Maxie July 8, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    philly.com is saying 8-10 weeks. He will probably be out the rest of the year; why not?

  • Chuck Manuel July 8, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Well..there goes ma job

  • Yeah Boy July 9, 2013 at 8:31 am

    Things are finally looking up. The guy can barely hit, can’t field, can’t throw and can’t run.

    This is a blessing.

  • Marcus Vick #5 July 9, 2013 at 10:19 am

    Yo if u need someone to dirve u arond for a few munths hit me up RyHo, I need a fukking job man Mike is mad again for cause I ate his Chetos =o(

  • Mike July 9, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    Funny, because we play much more like a team when he is not in the lineup. Do we still have to pay him when he is relaxing with his feet up in his Florida mansion??

    • Bob the Builder July 9, 2013 at 12:26 pm

      that shit ain’t don’t yet!
