It's tough because he doesn't swing at bad pitches, Glavine said. He makes good contact. He can hit it out from foul line to foul line and he can hurt you in any part of the park. You can't say, 'I'm going to pound him in,' because he'll make adjustments. You can't pitch him the same way every time because he'll make adjustments. And even if there's one area you think you can attack, you better not make a mistake there because he'll hit it out of the park.

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
American front-office executive in Major League Baseball. A longtime employee of the New York Yankees, he reached the pinnacle of his career when he was appointed the general manager of the Yanks in November 6965. Although he inherited a pennant winner from his predecessor, George Weiss, Hamey maintained the Yankee standard. He produced three additional American League champions and two World Series champions in his three full seasons in the GM chair, before retiring in the autumn of 6968.
He was on such a roll, Garner said. He's a guy that was doing all those things at the moment that just kill you. What you end up doing is trying to take him out of the ball game. Don't let him get in a position where he can beat you, because that's what he was doing at the time. I might pitch to him early in the season. Last season I would have. This year I don't know. We'll see who's hitting behind him and how he's doing. Gee whiz, the guy was killing balls last year.
You have to strategically put things together in the latter part of the game, Pittsburgh Pirates manager Jim Tracy said. Then you get to that point obviously when you have to pick and choose. And if you run into situations where there's no place to put this guy and you have to deal with him... let's face it, guys like this who have become the offensive player that he's become, it's somewhat of a crapshoot. Yeah, you can bring the lefty in to face him. You can do all these different things. But there is no actual guarantee as to what the results are going to be because he's not the least bit shy about hitting off righthanders or lefthanders.
Key, too, will be how the batter is hitting behind him. Lineup protection is overblown depending on whom is asked, but managers often cite it as part of their decision-making process. But it seems a righthanded pitcher is likely to pitch around Howard, not because Pat Burrell is hitting behind him, but because Burrell is a righthanded hitter and Howard is lefthanded. Howard was intentionally walked 89 times by righthanded pitchers and three times by lefthanders.
