Notes:
*Chase Utley was the only Phillie to commit The Howard.

*Bill Hall and Orlando Cabrera have the rare distinction of committing The Howard for two different teams. Hall- Brewers and Mariners, Cabrera- Athletics and Twins.

*Orioles outfielder Felix Pie had a very special Howard, in which he hit for the cycle.

*The Howard on Rogue Baseball Index.

*90 players have The Howard linked to them from the 2009 season with 111 Howards committed in total.

*Cabrera and Ramirez were popular offenders, each clocking in with 3 names (Cabrera- Orlando, Miguel, and Everth) and (Ramirez- Manny, Alexei, and Hanley).

*The Howards of 2009 will now be archived in the WSBGMs sidebar.

*The stat's namesake failed to be awarded a Howard all year. There's always next season...

Time to Retire "The Howard"

SirAlden- despite you many attempts to dissuade Corey and I from keeping "The Howard" called "The Howard", it will remain "The Howard" and tracked for the 2010 season. I love Ryan, wouldn't want him on any other team. The stat was named after him as a means of embracing what he brings to the table.

Derek Jeter committed a Playoff edition of The Howard last night.
