PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It was a long week for Ryan Howard, who was benched for three straight games beginning on Wednesday night. On Sunday, Howard hit a first inning two-run home run to left center field and later scored the controversial winning sixth inning run for the Phils.
After the 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks, when asked if it had been a tough week, Howard said, “You want to trade places? You want to see what it’s like? For me, I’m good. Like I said before, it’s all about putting things in perspective. There’s a lot of outside stuff, a lot of people who have opinions. They can’t — you don’t — walk in my shoes so you don’t know what it’s like.”
Well, the 94WIP Morning Show polled fans using their Audio Roadshow app, asking “Would you want to trade places with Ryan Howard?” Not surprisingly, four out of every five fans said yes (view results).
