Gotta give Ryan Howard some credit here. While a lot of players wouldn't have let cameras anywhere near their chair-aided attempts to take some infield practice, the Phillies first baseman appeared to have some fun with it on Thursday. The chair is the brain child of Phillies coach Sam Perlozzo and it allowed Howard — who still has no timetable for his return — to feel a little more like his old self while a jealous Jim Thome looks on. (Hey, no wonder Howard is smiling.)

So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?
