.286 with 27 homers, 68 RBI, and it's not even the halfway point yet. Got him on quite a few teams and I'm not complaining. :-°
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

In a roto league, it's not a big deal. In my h2h points league, Ks count as -1 point. So, he loses 170-200 points just in Ks. That hurts bad. Whether you are concerned, depends on your league format.

He's 9th in MLB K's so why even make this post if he's not leading? You may as well ask if Granderson will stike out 200 times. 8-o

I am in the same boat...we use -1 per strikeout also.

Ryan Howard JUST passed my other 1st baseman, Nick Johnson for the first time this season LAST NIGHT in scoring. And Nick has missed how many days? Those K's hurt. :-P

I was actually thinking about trading Ryan Howard before we declare keepers (we keep 5 players) next year. Especially if Weaver comes back....since I have Berkman and Hafner locked up, I am kinda deep at 1st. And since I can move Berkman to the OF, I have options to play with (Berkman OF/Hafner DH/ Howard 1B/) when it comes to setting my lineup next season.

I have to remind a couple of owners (that I will not trade him to) that Ryan Howard is the flashy exotic car that everyone sees "parked in my driveway," when I leave him on the bench sometimes.

And Nick Johnson is like the domestic Ford or Chevy that performs a little bit better than Howard, but he will never be the one targeted in a trade by the others.

Everyone looks at the flashy HR hitting Howard as the prize. But like the Adam Dunns and Richie Sexons and even Jim Thomes before him, he flirts with a high strikeout rate that should diminish his value to the number crunching owner....but it does not have that effect on the average owner.

The 180 K's will hurt, but if he can improve on that in the future, he might be worth keeping.

I also think that it will help if he gets moved up in the order next season and hits 4th for the entire season.

I absolutely agree. Also, in h2h leagues, I'm not big fans of guys who K a lot. I don't remember the exact qutoe. But Jose Cruz once said something to the effect that he was immune to slumps because he could always make contact or lay down a bunt if need be. I think it's really true that guys who K a lot tend to be more streaky than guys who can make contact.
