Ryan Howard on vacation?

Postby Inukchuk » Fri Apr 25, 2008 6:56 am

I was dozing off last night, and Baseball Tonight was discussing the Phillies game. They mentioned Howard sat yesterday, and then I thought I heard them say that Manuel planned on sitting Howard for tonight (Friday), as well. Did I hear this correctly? I just want to know whether or not I should sit him tonight...

The way he has been hitting I mean missing everything, it sure looks like he is on vacation. I think we have a new K king this year.

Man, if somewhere alnogthe line utley picks up 1B elegibility too, he'll become the most valuable player by miles. 2 position eligibility, a absolute above 330 aerage, and good power. He's a beast.

Similar to the end of last season, they are not playing him so that he doesn't reach 200+ strikeouts. He's got 34 in 85 AB's. That's a pace of near 250 for the season.

He gets a PH at bat and proceeds to K. Now I'm surprised when he DOESN'T strikeout. %-6
