It's a slow Phillies news day, but this is worth noting. Ryan Howard, fresh off his torn achilles and all has joined the world of Twitter. You can follow him @RyanHoward6 (whether you like that nerdy hat he's wearing in his pic or not).
For all those non-believers, Jimmy Rollins confirmed it's real:
Todd Zolecki even confirmed it:
The current Phillies players, Jimmy Rollins, Hunter Pence, Shane Victorino and Vance Worley to name a few are very talkative towards fans and love to interact with the Phillies faithful on pretty much a daily basis. It's nice to add our rehabbing slugger to that list.
That leads me to the question; what Philllies player would you most like to see join Twitter? It'd be great to interact with Doc or Cliff, or talk strategy with Utley. How about the lovable Chooch?
***Update 7:00pm: Howard has dropped the 6 from his handle. His new Twitter handle is simply @RyanHoward .***
