Brendan Ryan and The Howard

The Howard- the feat accomplished by a player who hits a homerun, commits an error, and strikes out all within the same game.

Seattle Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan is one of the finest defensive players in the game.  He's a regular on Web Gems and has one of the highest Defensive Wins Above Replacement (aka- DWAR) over the past four seasons (12.4 DWAR).  His bat on the other is atrocious.  He's currently batting .193/.553 and is only a career .244/.633 hitter.  However, when he has connected for the long ball this season, he's regularly turned it into The Howard, which is ironic considering his superior fielding. 

Yesterday Ryan hit only his 3rd homerun of the season and committed only his 9th error, yet it was his 2nd Howard.  That's noteworthy.

Phillies Stuff:
*How much does Halladay's 4.40 ERA and 2012 performance overall with lengthy DL stint worry you?

*The Phils have to win 5 out of the last 9 games to ensure their 10th consecutive winning season.  The Phillies have not had a losing record since moving into Citizens Bank Park.

*14 homeruns and 55 RBI in 67 games is pretty good.  However, when you're paid like one of the best players in baseball, your defense is horrible, base running is even worse, your OBP is below .300, you're batting .225, and you have a negative -1.0 WAR, that isn't good at all, that's bad.  That's Ryan Howard.

On the bright side, Utley has managed to squeeze out 2.8 WAR from his half season.

GM-Carson said...

Utley is still an elite player because he plays good defense, gets on base, has some pop, and runs the bases great.

Keeping him healthy is another matter.

Ben said...

Maybe I'm just being nostalgic, but I still feel like Utley had one more All-Star season left in him.

SirAlden said...

Howard has had 63 RBIs in the last 54 games.

So who do you want the Phillies to Sign for CF this offseason GM-Carson and GM Corey?

Bourne - Upton - Ross - Hamilton ?

Carson? Corey? lol

GM-Carson said...

I'd rather have Torii Hunter for CF on a 2-year deal ($26M maybe).

Bourne will be too expensive, and I just don't think he's going to age well...starting now.

Upton would be intriguing.

Hamilton on a 3 year deal would get me very excited.

Cody Ross...no, thanks. Eff that elf.

Bob D said...

Brendan Ryan must have the highest Howard percentage per homer.

Hamilton in CF would be awesome. With him it would be ok the keep Frandsen at 3B with maybe bringing in some competition.

Mini Mess needs to go!

Howard and Utley will be back and hopefully more productive and healthy.

SirAlden said...

Upton R or and Hamilton L in CF - Tori can't play CF anymore but would be great in RF.

Nix L and Ruff R (better than The Bull Luzinski has to be) in LF.

Brown L and Mayberry R in RF.

I really did not understand why they pulled the plug on both Shane and Hunter. Now I get it.

Beer-a-Thon said...

How about Mayberry in CF, Hunter in RF, Brown/Ruf in LF.

Just a thought.

Bob D said...

Want to see Ruf play first

Bob D said...

The Refs in Seattle just committed a Howard!

SirAlden said...

Ruff LF and DH

Bob D said...

I meant i want to see Ruf play in thwarting field first :-D
