Appreciating J.P. Howell’s curveball

I was as surprised as you were when J.P. Howell exercised the player option in his deal for $6.25 million. After posting a 1.43 ERA in 2015 and 1.97 in his last three seasons (not to mention a respectable 3.14 FIP), many thought the 32-year-old lefty would try his luck on the open market.

What’s Wrong With J.P. Howell?

The story of Game 2 of the NLDS was largely about whether Don Mattingly should or shouldn’t have yanked Zack Greinke. It’s not a question anyone would have been asking if J.P. Howell had done his job, which was to get out lefties Oscar Taveras and Matt Carpenter. He didn’t, and so Mattingly’s choice became a big focal point. It’s understandable that the manager is going...
