NLDS Legend: “Get Me to the Plate Boys” -Ryan Howard


This is stuff of Movies right here. The NL East Champion Philadelphia Phillies go into the 9th down two to the Colorado Rockies, Ryan Howard drives in the tying runs and scores the winning run. Cliff Lee recounts what went down in the Phillies dugout right before the 9th.

“That hit by Howard was the biggest and most impressive hit I’ve seen in my career. The only thing that might have made it better was if it woulda went out of the yard. He came down to the end of the bench and said, ‘Get me to the plate, boys.’ He wasn’t lying. He got up there and drilled those runs in. That was huge. That was the game right there.” -Cliff Lee on Ryan Howard’s performance

You have got to love that, unless you are from Colorado.
