2013-10-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, thoughts on Prince Fielder going forward...any improvement over 2013 (post-divorce) or similar or declining offensive performance? Thanks.
(Prince George from Danbury, CT)
It wouldn't surprise me if the divorce had something to do with Fielder's down year, but it is one of those things that is so difficult to measure. Frank Thomas had a down year once due to a divorce, but other players have actually improved in year when their marriages were breaking up. It's entirely possible that Fielder's size could lead to an earlier decline than in a more svelte player; I'm thinking of someone like Mo Vaughn who crashed and burned earlier than a slimmer 1B. Then again, it could have just been a down year. Fielder was still well above average. He didn't completely crater, but rather slipped somewhat. I think you have to draft him off of last year, but a bounce back to some degree at least would not be surprising. (Mike Gianella)
2010-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi David! The Phils will regret the extension for Howard by the year: a) 2012, b) 2013, c) 2014, d) sometime after that, e) never, cause flags fly forever
(dianagramr from NYC)
I had an email exchange with Will Carroll about Howard yesterday and something I threw out there was a Frank Howard "what if" comp. Ryan Howard is 30, which is the same age Hondo began turning from being a free-swinging slugger into a more disciplined slugger. As a result, his walk totals went up and his OPS skyrocketed for three or four years. He was obviously a very large man -- bigger than his Phillies namesake -- and perhaps Ryan Howard is about to morph from an all-star into a mega-star. Is that more likely than him becoming the next Mo Vaughn? It is really up to him, I suppose. (David Laurila)
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Big Papi--the beginning of the end? Or all related to his wrist problems? I'm getting a bad Mo Vaughn mojo about the future...
(Owen from PA)
I've had the same thought. It's probably a better question for Will Carroll, at least the part about his wrist. Speaking more generally, his body really didn't promise a long career, wrist or not. That said, he's hit .281/.398/.497 since coming back, so a crippled Ortiz ain't too bad a player. If the wrist can be fixed, it doesn't seem like he's really lost much THIS year. Again, though, more injuries are coming. (Steven Goldman)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Joe. We're a month in, and shockingly, the Mets haven't clinched the East yet. Do the Phillies have a shot at 75 wins this year? They've had their best April in recent memory, and have done so without Rollins and Victorino for the last 3 weeks, and with Ryan Howard looking more and more like dead in the water Mo Vaughn. Is it time to possibly start giving them their respect after basically writing them off before the season even started?
(Ryan from Philly)
And with Chase Utley hitting like Rogers Hornsby, and Pat Burrell and Jayson Werth over their heads. It all counts, Ryan. Romero, Lidge and Durbin have a 32/22 K/BB and a collective ERA under 1.00. The Phillies are 15-13, +11, which is basically the team I thought they were. They'll be in the hunt, and probably fall short when the pitching does. Lovely park, though. (Joe Sheehan)
