Howard's game has regressed so much since his rookie season and Manuel is the one to blame for that.
37 of those walks were intentional. And 35 the following year. The most IBB he's gotten since then was 17, so really it's not that drastic a difference in his plate discipline. Pitchers probably made some adjustments and figured out how to attack his weaknesses better.
