In Loving Memory of Ryan Howard

"Howard was brought up and signed as an impact bat, the kind of franchise tentpole that produces runs and wins and championships, and he exists largely in our memory as that. But that’s not what he is anymore. Today, Howard is a platoon DH, still potent against righties but awful against lefties, and entirely bereft of value as a base runner or defender. He’s a player who’s done such great things and deserves to go out with more dignity than he’s going to get."

Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft

I would love to run this for the Phillies, but I have a prior commitment on the First. I'd love for someone here in the TGP community to run it. I'm happy to help whomever picks this up with my thoughts on the players (plus you'll have my write-ups for the First Rounders). This isn't 5 minutes of work though, this is, at least, 3 rounds of drafting Perhaps, we can take this and follow the drafted players for a few years and see how our Alternate Universe Phillies are doing.
