Joseph will play today and Howies going to play the next three unless we see a lefty, Mackanin said. I re-thought that and decided that Howie is going to play a little bit more because this is possibly his last year here.Howard is in his final year of a five-year, $125 million deal, and he has just eight home games left with the Phillies. Mackanin added he wants Howard to also play in the final three when the Phillies close out their season against the Mets at home on Sept. 30-Oct. 2.A three-time All-Star, Howard is the last remaining piece of the Phillies 2008 World Series team still on the roster.
