The Howard - Final 2016 Standings

The Howard- when a player strikes out, commits an error, and hits a homerun all within the same game.  Lovingly named after the Philadelphia Phillies slugger, Ryan Howard.


Congratulations to Kyle Seager of the Seattle Mariners. His team might have the longest playoff drought in MLB, but they can claim this prestigious honor at the very least.

Inside the Numbers:
*151 Howards were committed in 2016, which ranks at the top of the pack since the stat's creation prior to the 2009 season. It's no surprise either, considering more homeruns were in this year than any other year in the history of baseball, except for 2000. Year - # of Howards: 2009- 111, 2010- 112, 2011- 107, 2012- 129, 2013- 92, 2014- 118, 2015- 116, 2016- 151.

*The 2015 Howards standings will be archived on the right sidebar of the blog.

Bob D said...

N. Syndergaard/NYM- 1 wow a pitcher impressive, did he also allow a HR and throw a strike out?

Bob D said...

Wasn't there a double Howard committed during season?

GM-Carson said...

Emmanuel Burriss, Patrick Schuster, Jimmy Parades, Frank Hermann, Dalier Hinojosa, and Colton Murray have all been outrighted off the 40 man roster.

Aside from Hinojosa, they all pretty much are worthless. Good riddance.

ripjgarcia said...

yeah.. not much to be missed there.

rslitman said...

And also was safe on an error, maybe after laying down a bunt in another at bat in that game?

Bob D said...

Is there something wrong with website?

GM-Carson said...

I will post soon

GM-Carson said...

Freddy Galvis and Odubel Herrera up for Gold Gloves. Congrats to both.

I feel Cesar Hernandez should have been included in the NL 2B group too.

Bob D, Jake Arrieta is also on the list. The odds of a pitcher doing this are really incredible, but two pitchers??
