All Hail Ryan Howard

Back in the Spring, Mike Schmidt was in town on a media tour hawking his new book, so I swung over to Rittenhouse Square to interview him.
Granted, we talked a lot about Barry Bonds, so much so that I couldn't include much of what he said about Ryan Howard in the piece. So today, as Howard matches Schmidt's all-time single-season franchise home-run record, it's worth pointing out that Michael Jack saw this coming, giving the youngster mad props and, yes, predicting that his mark would ultimately fall. (Which it will any game now).
