Statistical Evidence that The Howard Wins Games

The Howard- a feat accomplished when a player hits a homerun, strikes out, and commits and error all in the same game.

Only 1 of the 3 criteria is something positive that would aid in winning a ball game (HR). However, WSBGMs has uncovered irrefutable evidence to prove that when a Phillie commits The Howard in a game it will inevitably end with a W for the good guys. The same cannot be said for the remaining 29 teams' players that commit The Howard, as it seems it's only Karmic retribution for the Phightins.

2010 Howards by Phillies:
Ryan Howard- April 7, Phils over Gnats 8-4
Ryan Howard- April 28, Phils over Giants 7-6.
Jayson Werth- May 6, Phils over Braves 7-2.
Chase Utley- May 14, Phils over Brew Crew 9-5.

PAT BURRELL DFA

Yep, 10 days to trade or release, or bring him back. Either way the minimum they'll owe him next year is 8.8 million.

Moyer has now let up 501 Hrs in his career, which is second behind Hall of Famer (&another Philly pitcher) Robin Roberts!

ripjgarcia said...

Doh.. fat ass Fielder just whacked the shit outta that ball.

4 - 0 with the Howard. That is awesome. We own that stat. Keep it up Phils!

Smashin' the brewers again! This is beautiful to watch. Vic is on fire again. And how about the Hoover. No suckin', just smokin'!

Bloodstripes said...

Never in doubt. Good experience for Contreras to pitch in that dodgy situation. Phils win. Of course!

Bob D said...

Lidge to DL - Bastardo back to Philly. Wonder when Castro is put on DL he hasnt appeared in more than a week. And Ruiz hasnt appeared in 4 days.

As Corey puts it - tommorow the 'vagina' pitches. I hope he is like a bad infection on the Brewer hitters.

Bloodstripes said...

Give 'em VD Cole. Good luck

ripjgarcia said...

Um.... I'm less than worried about closing out games (I know this is a curse) as Contreras is pitching lights out. 18 Ks in 13 1/3 with only 2 walks and 7 hits.. I don't know about his day to day availability but its worth them trying it out until he fails (in other words even when Lidge comes off the DL)

Corey said...

it's actually carson who calls cole hamels a vagina...

GM-Carson said...

Yes, I am the namer of Cole as vagina...which he is, so it's not a stretch.
