Ryan Howard’s emotional last day: ‘It will be with me forever’ | PhillyVoice

The final day of the 2016 regular season was Howard’s moment at Citizens Bank Park.

It was his final game in a Phillies uniform. It was a recognition of his iconic 13-year stay in Philadelphia.

It was an emotional goodbye for the 36-year-old Howard, who is set to file for free agency for the first time in his professional career next month.

“Today is a day I’ll definitely remember,” he told the crowd of 36,935 inside the ballpark after the game’s final out. “Philadelphia will always be home.”

With end nearing, Ryan Howard will play in final two weekend series in South Philly | PhillyVoice

When the month began, Mackanin said he planned to play Tommy Joseph more at first base in an effort to see more of the younger half of the first base timeshare. But he’s reversed course, knowing that this could be it for Howard.

“I just kept thinking about it, the whole year I’ve been thinking about it, that situation,” Mackanin said. “Especially as well as he’s handled the whole thing, he’s been so good about the whole thing, I want to give him something.”

Mackanin will start Howard in each of the final two home weekends, unless the team is matched up against a left-handed starter.

“Another 20-25 at-bats won’t matter for Joseph,” Mackanin said.

MLB clears Ryan Howard, Ryan Zimmerman in PED probe

Turns out the shipments were just going to Peyton Manning’s wife!

Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman were cleared of wrongdoing in Major League Baseball’s investigation into their possible use of performance-enhancing drugs, prompted by an Al Jazeera report.

MLB announced Friday that the investigation was complete and it “did not find any violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Howard or Zimmerman.”...

The report was based on recordings with Charles Sly, a former worked at the Guyer Institute in Indianapolis. Sly also implicated several NFL players, including Peyton Manning.

Slay has since recanted his statements. Sly also declined to speak with the commissioner’s office or provide requested information.

Howard and Zimmerman filed lawsuits against Al Jazeera in January. The players claimed the report was inaccurate, unsubstantiated and reckless.
