Win Rookie of the Year; Own the City

Did anyone notice that Mayor Street declared yesterday ‘Ryan Howard Day’ or did it go completely under the radar?

I mean Mr. Mayor could do something important like put some muscle behind the proposed smoking ban, but apparently he’s got other priorities, which include helping the Phillies paint the town red.

But we can’t exactly blame him. Ryan Howard is sick. And as Philadelphia Will Do pointed out the other day, he’s everyone’s favorite new Phillie. (Hell, April 3 can't come quick enough.)

And the Weekly has just proclaimed that he’s going to save Philadelphia baseball.

Our only question: was accepting the proclamation in the afternoon worth missing the Fightins’ shut out the Yankees later that night? We don’t know. Pissing on the Yankees is something every Phillie should hold close to their heart.

And the Weekly proclaims he's going to save baseball just six days after the Philadelphia City Paper published a story that actually interviewed him.
