This is classic Ryan Howard.
Howard, profiled on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" in a
segment to air Monday night, talks about how his financial adviser -
his mother - gives him an allowance out of the money he earns.
"She handles the funds. Like, I'll get it, and then I won't see it.
She'll let me look at the check, and then it's gone," Howard said.
The 27-year-old St. Louis native made $355,000 last year.
Without a doubt the best value in baseball last season. Just more proof that Ryan Howard is a down to earth kind of guy. I love it.
Most reports I've seen this off-season expect the Phillies to give Howard a raise somewhere in excess of the one million dollar area. His big payday seems to be a few years away.
