A bunch of regulars are getting the night off tonight. Except for Ryan Howard, of course. Because he will play forever. He will play until his legs fall off. He will play even if he sucks. Wait, that's happening right now!

No happy video today. The no-hitter from yesterday is all the happiness you need.
