Get Well, Ryan Howard

Ryan Howard, the slugging first baseman of the Phils, spiked a 104 degree fever this weekend, and had to be briefly hospitalized twice. Today, it was announced that he has a particularly nasty sinus infection. As someone who has regularly suffered with the misery of sinus infections on at least an annual basis for more than 30 years now, I can certainly empathize. There are few things more miserable than a bad sinus infection. You feel like your head is in a vice, and nothing you do helps. It's horrible.

Get well very soon, Ryan. I hope that you make a quick and full recovery, as the Phightin's need every at bat from you that they can get after this weekend's disaster against the Orioles. It's a good thing that the Muts are so incredibly inept, or the Phillies would be out of the race by now. Only because the Muts continue to play inconsistent and bad baseball are the Phils still in it.

The good news is that the Phils can't lose tonight, simply because they don't play. Maybe a night off will help right all that's presently wrong with this team, because it would be hard to imagine a team playing a whole lot worse than they are at present.
