Ryan Howard and his terrible play

Postby andyroo486 » Wed May 02, 2007 10:56 am

I watch almost all of his at bats, and each time I cringe. He just looks terrible out there. Any word on if maybe he's hurt or not? Is it just a slow start? It's killing me.....

To a certain extent people are learning to pitch to him. They throw pretty bad pitches early, and if he happens to swing then they can attack him and get him to K (29 K/79 AB - absurd). On the other hand, if he takes the first few pitches then he gets a walk (26BB). They just aren't giving him pitches to hit, and he's struggling to adjust.

I was really big on the Ryan Howard bust wagon earlier this year and still am. A guy who K's as often as Adam Dunn, even if he hits 15 more homers, should not have an average anywhere near .300.

He's standing too far away from the plate and can't catch the pitches away.
Will always help in return (leave a link to your question in response)
