Ryan Howard Is a Feely Person

It has been a few weeks since Ryan Howard dropped Larry Reynolds like he was hot. I suggested that Howard may choose the Beverly Hills Sports Council, following the path of teammate Jimmy Rollins. Instead, Ryan Howard decided that he should make a decision based on emotions. He is quoted as saying:

“I’m a kind of feely person. Something to me just got to feel good.”

He is referring to Creative Artists Agency. Ryan Howard recently signed with Casey Close of CAA with the intention of being paid like an MVP [Phils’ Howard still basking in MVP attention].

Chalk another one up for the super-mega-big ass new Sports Agency on the block.
