Report: The Phillies Are Willing to Eat the Entire Budget of Ted In Ryan Howard Trade

When the Phillies had talked about the possibility of moving Ryan Howard in the offseason, there was always the understanding that the they would have to eat some of his salary to do so. That’s still the deal, and how much salary are they willing to gobble up? About $50 million.

According to Sports on Earth’s Anthony Castrovince, the Phillies have been “telling (uninterested) teams they’re willing to swallow a significant chunk of the $60 million still owed to Howard over the next two years,” namely $50 million of that $60 million, giving Ryan Howard a yearly salary (for the receiving team) about $1.5 million more than what the Phils are currently paying Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. That’s a steal … probably.

The time to move Howard might be coming to an end, but if he opens up the season with a strong showing, and the Phillies are still willing to eat that sum of money, he could be on his way out. And just to think, 2015 could be the year we finally get some return on Ryan Howard.

  1. The phils should keep him. Howard looks like he’s in the best shape of his life & is prime for a bounce back year. Can see him hitting 30-35 hr & knocking in 110 RBI’s

    1. Fucking stop it. He LEADS all of baseball in spring training strikeouts. They can’t even get rid of this big piece of fucking monkey shit KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK machine and his whore white wife if they ate the whole contract and gave money.
      Fuck you Rube.

  2. Don’t worry guys, if Howard manages to get any trade value, I promise I will fuck this up.

  3. 2015 May be the year we get some return on Ryan Howard??? You really are a dope. I guess you forgot about him winning an MVP in 06 when he made $360k. Or the $900k he made in 07 when hit 47 homers and 136 RBIs. Even the $10 and $15 million he made in 08 and 09 was a bargain, considering he was the best power hitter in the game (93 homers and 287 RBIs combined). I’m not naive to the fact that the 2011 extension has hamstrung this team, but let’s not forget how the Phillies benefitted from Howard earlier in his career.

    1. Exactly.

      Is Howard anything close to the player he once was? No. But who is?

      He was the best power hitter in baseball for about 5 or 6 years, bar none. And we got 2 World Series appearances and 1 championship out of it.

      People need to stop being ingrates.

      1. you would’ve made GTC manager-for-life then. you’d fit in well with the phillies FO. hell, monty cried when he had to fire the worst GM in MLB history, FFS.

      2. Ingrates? Judge not Andy, lest ye be judged. Remember when the big nose struck out and blew his Achilles simultaneously to end the Phillies season? You don’t recall screaming out the name of my son in vain? Let he who is without sin blah blah blah… you get the idea my son.

    2. Thank you for stating the obvious. People easily forget what a beast Howard was early in his career and the Phils severely UNDERpaid for him in the first few years. You can’t blame a guy for accepting a boat load of money when it’s offered to him, Rube was dumb enough to do it. Howard’s body has just broken down and now we’re stuck owing him a lot of money.

      Can’t blame Jim for not understanding this though since he’s only followed sports for the past two years. Right after Kyle hired him via Twitter.

    3. I know anonymously beating the crap out of Jim from behind a keyboard passes for sport here, but come on… The “finally see a return” comment is clearly *sarcastically* in reference to getting a return on the CRIPPLING (and moronic) 2011 long-term extension , not Howard’s entire Phillies career.

      Speaking of his early career, as dumb as Ruben/Monty were for giving Howard that deal in 2011, let us also not forgot to throw Ed Wade under the bus for wasting Ryan’s early prime years behind Thome; he should’ve been playing at the big league level at least two seasons before he became the every day first baseman.

      1. Or, if they didn’t want to play him, then he should’ve been traded for Carlos Beltran or some other asset that would’ve put them in contention for a championship. Utley being blocked by the not so dynamic duo of Bell/Polanco was similarly maddening.

  4. RAJ Future Sequence of Events –
    1. Will find some sucker out there to take Ryan Howard and his entire contract
    2. Will have piles of money to piss away
    3. Will trade Cole Hamels even up for Josh Hamilton
    4. Will sign Josh Hamilton to a 16 year deal

  5. Shedding Howard doesn’t allow light from end of tunnel, but at least let’s fans know the tunnel has an end.

  6. The Ted reference in the title is just dumb. Another weak effort at humor by you, Mr. Adair.

  7. If you make an annual salary of $50k, you would have to work 500 years without taxes taken out to equal what howard, hamels or lee make in 1 season.. And no one seems resentful of this

  8. The Phillies didn’t play today..but somehow, this piece of fucking shit struck out three times (once looking).

  9. Let howard play out the contract let him suck it for a while stock up on draft picks and go from there.

  10. Thanks for the trip down memory fucking lane … another year of Howard striking out in the bottom of the ninth with two outs
