Sad Ryan Howard is sad

Oct 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

Sorry we're going with so many photo-centric posts this morning, but it beats reading a thousand words over and over again, right?

There are about a billion photos of Ryan Howard’s final strikeout on the news wires this morning, but this one is my favorite by far.

I sense a “Sad Keanu”-style meme here. I have no skills to speak of, but Ryan Howard is begging to be Photoshopped everywhere, standing impassively as great wonderment and celebration surround him.

    The Keanu link makes this post true news. I am sure I will not learn one new thing today that is cooler than learning that this site exists. Thank you.

    He should give Carlos Beltran a call.

    Well, That face sure sums that series right up. They choked bad. This offense was impotent.

      I know it doesn’t help, but there’s a nice article by Dave Cameron on fangraphs.com* about how ridiculous it is if people are blaming this on Howard, considering how he and Werth were the only ones who actually hit.

        Oh yeah, I totally agree with that. The whole team kinda went quietly.
