Bobby Howry, FTL... Then FTW!    

From last night's Fenway-esque romp at Wrigley:

After Tulowitzki's homer, a fan jumped onto the field from the roof of the Rockies' dugout and charged at Howry. The fan was just a few feet from the mound when security guards tackled him.

"As soon as I turned around the guy clotheslined him and took him down," said Howry, who hardly moved as the fan charged his way. "He said, 'What are you doing?' I'm trying to give up home runs, what do you think?"
Bobby Howry, you get five Jeffbucks for that line.  Can you tell Howry has had his ups and downs the last few years?

And how about a guy running on the field not to draw attention to himself, not to pretend to call his shot at home plate in his underwear or whatever... but to beat up Howry for blowing the game.  Yikes.  I'm all for accountability, but jeez.  Even the guy who beat up the first base coach a few years ago wasn't upset about how the game was going.  This is serious.  Hope it doesn't touch off a rash of copycats; Julio Lugo's next strikeout could incite a mob scene.
