The Howard King


The Howard co-winner in both 2009 and 2010 just took the MLB lead in the exclusive category with his 2nd of the season. Congratulations Mark Reynolds. The young slugging, strikeout prone, erratic fielder has 11 Howards to his name since the creation of the stat prior to the 2009 season. 9 Howards were committed with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the 2 most recent with the Baltimore Orioles. Mark Reynolds is truly The Howard King.


Since 2009 Mark Reynolds has hit 80 homeruns, struck out 473 times, and committed 48 errors. Impressive.

It may be renamed "The Reynolds" if he keeps dominating this stat. I do have to say "The Howard" has a better ring to the name just like a bad bowel movement.

The double Howard last year was impressive.

I can't tell if this kid has some real talent or just sucks and swings too hard.

Michael Martinez starting in CF and batting 2nd. WTF?!

I know Victorino is a little dinged up and needs the day off, but c'mon. Start Mayberry in CF and then Gload in LF.

GM-Carson said...

Holy shit, Martinez got a hit for a second day in a row. The Apocalypse is upon us.

Bob D said...

When he first hit that I thought it was going to be an infield home run. But all he got was a single

GM-Carson said...

Bunch of BS rinky-dink singles has the Braves up 1-0. Shame that might mean the game is over already and Doc gets saddled with the loss. Phillies just can't hit.

GM-Carson said...

Mayberry with 2 walks, a homerun, and 2 RBI today. Proof that he belongs in the lineup more.

Also, more food for thought- Who needs Davy Lopes? Phils still can steal will high success rate.

GM-Carson said...

Phils got f'd up by that roided up elf Dan Uggla today. He's like Popeye the Sailor Man with that bicep/forearm combo.

Classy or not. I'm sick of the players being forced to wear these ridiculous uniforms for these special event weekends.

GM-Carson said...

BOO!!!

Halladay deserves better.

pretty much as expected all the way around.

Ryan "it hasn't sunk in yet that they're getting me out with breaking balls" Howard.

Impressive Martinez can go 1 for 4 and still raise his average by 12 points
