A Simple Request.
I don't ask for much, I think.
It's not a huge request, in this world of instant information. Ryan Howard was supposed to sit out during the week and pinch-hit if needed, which he did on Wednesday, hitting a grand slam. I had Howard on my bench, since that's where I thought he'd be for the Phillies. They had no game on Thursday, but the plan was for Howard to play the weekend series.
I guess that means Saturday and not Friday night? Most folks were predicting he'd play today -- but not only did he not, there's no information about it. None. So, what does that mean?
Why didn't Howard play tonight?
