and again it makes no mention of the affect that certain players have on the rest of the lineup. ryan 4th and pence 6th is about 100x better than pence 4th and the slop that has been hitting 6 this year. even an ahole like you can't deny that.
i guess people who jump off the bandwagon, sell their tickets, and stop watching wouldn't really no the difference though if they just read a chart once in a while.
howard has looked great since coming back. already in playoff form.
as for the article, it has hard data showing that howard's production doesn't equal his reputation (with most phils fans...which is funny since they watch him more than the avg fan and should know that he's average at this point in his career). it also shows that the 4 hole has been more productive this year (and last year) than it was with howard hitting there. so if you think pence is so bad it doesn't make any sense that you think howard is so great. personally I think they both suck
affect/effect...you must have missed that lesson in 4th grade
I still watch the games chief. You should try doing the same...it would be a nice start towards you not sounding so uneducated.
