WARY OF HOWARD

 

Girardi said the Marlins will approach Phillies slugger Ryan Howard with extreme caution when the teams open their series tonight. Howard has been on a power tear, raising his major league-leading home run total to 53.

 

Girardi had said this season that he wanted his pitchers to go after Albert Pujols and Barry Bonds as part of their learning experience.

 

''But we're not 20 games under anymore, either, so the situation will dictate what we're going to do with him,'' Girardi said of Howard. ``He's been impressive.''

 

 

 

This was from yesterday's Miami Herald (9/7) - Girardi is so full of s**t, as he lets Howard beat us tonight.

Yeah, I saw him reading the stat book in the dugout on TV. Anyone think he had a playboy slipped in that badboy b/c it sure didn't give him any advice about walking Howard?

Great post because a new rookie K mark is a very significant milestone.

 

This season was never susposed to be anything more than a development year with aspirations of contending in 08 or 09'. But obviously this team blew away all expectations and became an actual wild card contender. We have been spoiled by our rookies. Many great players struggled their first two or three years in the Big's before establishing great careers.

 

We've basically seen every one of our rookies far exceed expectations...and that's a serious understatment. Only Hermedia and Jacobs really projected to have solid seasons, and the best bet to have a great year frustrated many of us (Hermedia). Who would have ever thought even one of our rookie pitchers would have this type of season. Most top young pitchers show flashes of talent but have their overall numbers deflated by the combination of more innings, arm fatigue, and simply the ridiculousness of sustaining a great year in a players rookie season. We have seen Josh Johnson contend for the era title. We have seen Anibel and Ricky flash absolute #1 starter potential (obviously Anibel has taken it up a notch). And somehow Olsen's standout rookie year has been somewhat overlooked.

 

Think about how many teams have not had a homegrown rookie Starter like Olsen in the last 10 years....and with us he is simply lumped together with his fellow rookies. Most of us thought he was the most talented of our rookies going into the season, and he proably is. This team is blessed with a ridiculous amount of riches in every aspect, specifically SP.

 

To have a guy like Olsen merely blend in is a testament to the overall talent and to the amazing seasons these young guys have put up. I guess if many great players didn't do well in their first two or three years then maybe so many of our rookies instant success is no guarantee of sustained greatness. But I have a hard time believing we are not seeing the start of ridiculous careers by as many as 8-10 of our rookies. We are blessed to have been a part of such an incredible part of baseball history.
