Eh, Howard will still put up his usual 45 HRs 130 RBI and a dreadful .250 AVG. I play in primarily H2H leagues so I usually avoid Howard and Dunn due to inconsistency. I can't stand his average, but in about a month he will be a nice buy low guy, if you don't mine punting AVG.

Most do attempt to pitch that way to Howard. But not everyone has Derek Lowe's command. A hanging slider is one of the most dangerous pitches to throw to a guy like Howard.

Bats, they are sick. I cannot hit curveball. Straightball I hit it very much. Curveball, bats are afraid. I ask Jobu to come, take fear from bats. I offer him cigar, rum. He will come.

Agreed, either they hang 'em or walk him. This pretty much explains it all.
