Thanks to Jason Collette, we are aware of this rumor out of Philly. It's unconfirmed, sure, but two guys on the radio talked about it, which means it's probably just a matter of matching up contracts.
Don't worry, though, Rays fans. Looks like the Phillies would pick up at least half of Howard's contract, so it works out. He's only 32, so he has five years left. The pieces make sense, the pieces make sense.
What are your thoughts, baseball fans?
