Howie Doubles No More

On Aug. 13, 2008, Howie Kendrick went 1-6 with a double. It was his 71st career double in his 234th game, a rate so historically high that if Howie managed a career as long as Omar Vizquel's, he would shatter Tris Speaker's all-time mark. Up until that point in his career, Kendrick's had never gone more than 10 games without hitting a double; tellingly those were the first 10 games of his career.


Since Aug. 13, 2008, Howie hasn't hit a double in 30 games. Or 34, if you include last year's postseason debacle.

What are the chances of a guy who hits a double every 3.3 games to go 0 for 34? I'll let the mathematicians among us answer. Not bloody high, I know that much.

My hope, in pointing this out, is that I reverse the jinx. Also, GET IT TOGETHER, HOWIE!
