I traded in late April for Howard, and it's paying off big time.. I know his stock is low, but GET OFF the Teix 1st round train.. Put it this way, end of June 05, he was at 22 HR's and 62 RBI's.. He is not even 1/2 of that right now.. I think we may find out he's injured.. He looks lost at the plate.. Keep him if you want, but Id get rid of him now. Before you know it, it'll be August 1st and he will be sitting at a dandy 19 HR's and 70 RBI type season..
Is this a joke? A Man with a .383 OBP is lost at the plate? That statement alone makes me not buy into anything else you said.
He's above his career Avg and OBP, hes improved his Batters Eye (.79 BB/K improvement over career .54), hes batting .306 with RISP, and even with how bad his power has been hes on pace for 92 Runs and 85 RBI. Baseball has a way of evening out over the long run and his Home Runs will come eventually. 43? Doubt it, but 30-35 is reasonable to expect.
