  1. I’m just throwing this out there because I’m an O’s fan who watched JJ a lot the last two year. It may be nothing, but it may be something. He battled a shoulder injury during spring training. I don’t think it ever fully healed. He was always doing arm circles with his throwing arm while in the field to keep it loose. From my untrained eye, it seemed like that back shoulder was causing him some problems at the plate, even though he showed no ill-effects in the field.

  2. Well. That did it. I will now watch Party Hard on YouTube ( approximately 100 times by Sunday. Damn you Madden 2003! Damn you straight to hell!

  3. He played most of this season injured, in case you were looking for a reason for the dropoff in his production.

  4. No data, but I’m guessing the more aggressive defensive shifts affected Hardy’s babip this year.

  5. True story, I own every Madden.

    Also: You could listen to “Last Day of School” by Wylde Bunch. That was on Madden…..2004 or ’05. That also references “Party Hardy”

  6. Definitely possible. I didn’t note it in the piece, but if he’s not healthy now, I don’t think he can ever really be counted on to be healthy again.

  7. Yeah but he is ALWAYS injured.

  8. No surprise. I think the new distribution that Hardy had means he at least tried to beat shifts.

  9. Nice! I am working on obtaining every year of Madden for every console made.

  10. I watched him a lot as a Brewer and a few things generally held true.

    1) He is very streaky especially when it comes to the HRs.
    2) He turns into a groundball out making machine when he is banged up
    3) He is underrated defensively because he doesn’t look like he has much range but he positions himself well and uses his arm strength to play deeper than most.
    4) He is slow as dirt so will never carry a great BABIP and his SB and R will always hurt you.

  12. I was rather disappointed that there was no direct reference to Andrew W.K. after that title.
