View Full Version : Gascan not what he use to be?

04-25-2002, 03:06 PM
Is it time to relieve Bob Howry of his nickname? He is very much resembling his 2000 form, when personally I think he was one of the best setup men in the league, and 1999 when he was a pretty good closer. I know a lot of people here are big fans of him, but in 10 games now his ERA is 1.54........

I may be able to take that nickname off of Bobby's hands.

As much as everyone wants to hate Bobby, he has been terrific on the mound. I think he just had a bad spring, you would think he would be better than last year since he is now 2 years removed from surgery and so far he is proving it right.

You forgetting about Osuna? He can't make an appearance without giving up a run or 2, although he has yet to get shelled or give them up in huge situations, he still throws the other team a couple of bones every outing...

Perhaps we could remove the name under an interim basis and put him on probation? But he needs a name other than BigBobHowry, (as hawk has called him before) that just makes him sound like car salesman.
