Phillies | Offense sore subject for Charlie Manuel

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 17:37:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has hit just one home run in his last 107 plate appearances entering play on Wednesday, June 12. Manager Charlie Manuel was asked if his recent struggles might be related to an ailing left knee and if he'd consider hitting someone else fourth. The questioning led to a somewhat heated exchange in which his frustrations became obvious. Manuel was asked if he was upset about the offense or the questions concerning it, and he replied, "A little of both, probably. We are inconsistent performance-wise. And when you've got that, it's hard. We won five games in a row, then we lose four. That's kind of how we've been playing."

Fantasy Tip: Well then. Howard heated up briefly after he received a cortisone shot, but the knee is a problem he acknowledged he may have to deal with for the rest of the season. He may slowly round back into form, but that form may be of a 25- or 30-homer player, at best. The offense certainly misses Chase Utley, too.
