Ryan Howard

Postby yankeekd25 » Wed Apr 09, 2008 11:20 pm

Any reason to believe he won't K 200 times this year? Will he come close to 40 bombs? He's really messing my team up. Should I try to swing a deal or hang onto him? With my first two picks I took Miguel Cabrera and stole Howard and thought the league was already mine. These two, especially Howard, are KILLING ME!

Dont jinx it quite yet... I'm playing Howard, and need to keep his slump going at least until Sunday !+)

After this week, for the Howard owners, I hope he does better

I think he always seems to be a slow starter... But keep him in your lineup, he's too good. ;-D

I'm not worried, he'll be mashing soon enough and I don't have a backup 1B anymore. I wouldn't bench him in the first place unless my backup was Prince Fielder and he's not doing so hot either :-D

Did you draft him in a league that penalizes K's? If so, then I do not know what you were expecting. He will K a lot and eventually hit a lot of HRs. He does seem to start sloooowwww though.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Story of the year so far for my fantasy team. Howard finally hits one, but I too have Maine. I also have Wagner. Def coulda used the W and the save.

Cabrera post...Howard post now...neither one in sig? How many guys do you have to keep track off?

Howard will get back on track soon enough. He tatooed Heilman today but thankfuly "Blowenweis" has set him down in the 12th ;-D
