The Phillies announced on Friday that Tommy Joseph will get the bulk of the playing time at first base over Ryan Howard. This is the last year of Howard's contract with the Phils so it is not a surprise that he would start to receive less playing time. The Big Piece has also struggled at the plate while Joseph has been on a tear since coming up from Triple A last month. Hopefully Joseph will continue to hit well and Howard will be a threat as a pinch hitter.
