Local man would seriously trade Ryan Howard

According to sources, Norristown resident Justin Powell would trade Phillies firstbaseman Ryan Howard in a heartbeat if he got the chance.

“Without question, I would give him up for a hot pocket right now,” Powell reportedly said of Howard on 97.5 The Fanatic. “I’m not even kidding either. I would try and trade him for Cliff Lee, but if I couldn’t, I would seriously settle for a roll of toilet paper.”

Powell would later retract his statement, saying he “was just upset there was no food or toilet paper in the house.”

    I would trade Howard for Cliff Lee straight up easily, especially if the Mariners would take his contract.

    I think in reality it would be a lateral move, and if Lee really did want to test FA, you’d be left with nothing after this season. You’d have money to spend on Howard’s replacement, but why not just keep Howard if that’s the case.

    I think anyone outside of Howard, Utley or Halladay would make sense, though.

Feel free to leave a comment. Or don't. It's whatever...
