Randy Miller reports Charles Barkley says Ryan Howard should get a long-term deal from the Phillies.
“When you see a guy who has done what Ryan Howard has done, he should have gotten a long-term deal already,. It’s very disappointing (the Phillies) haven’t given him his due. They are doing him a disservice. He should be one of the 10 highest-paid players in the game because he’s clearly one of the 10 best players in the game.”
Has Barkley looked at Howard’s strikeouts? Really, however, it’s smarter that the Phils take their time with Howard. As for Barkley? Yeah, he loves to speak his mind, and that’s great, but where does he stop?
