Howard's the big winner

The baseball owners are no longer perfect. In 2008 arbitration cases that is.

Ryan Howard got what he was asking for Thursday, winning his arbitration case with Philadelphia and earning himself a nice chunk of change ($10 million) for the 2007 season.

Win or lose Howard was going to enjoy a huge raise from the $900,000 he earned a year ago, but this gives him some stature.

And I'm guessing he won't end up in the same situation Todd Walker was in a year ago when he won his arbitration case against San Diego.

Walker was released shortly thereafter and was done with the game by May of last year.

It's hard to see Philadelphia treating the 2006 NL MVP that way.
