Great pitchers duel tonight once Bumgarner settled in.
I'd love to see our pitchers face our lineup sometime.
These games really do have that rivalry/playoff type feel to them.
I honestly in no way fear Howard. I know dude has mad power but his average is so bad and anytime there are two strikes I feel like its a guaranteed K. (Now he's gonna have a monster game cuz I said that) but its like any time there are two strikes he will swing at anything. I wonder What his average is with two strikes?
i expected howard to struggle he just stinks against lefties...Howard is what he is..a big power bat that will stike out alot but dirve you in 140 rbis a year..i love the guy..my favorite Philly...if howard only struck out 100 times a year and batted .300 every year hed be the greatest hitter to ever play the game...hes not that
He does what he does. I dont know why they even let Righties throw to him. Walk him fat butt. I would let the lefties throw all day and his average would be .126 with no homers at the end of the year.
