Ryan Howard: A Complete Player

HowardLast season Ryan Howard finished second in MVP voting with a .250 average, 48 home runs and 146 runs batted in. This season, his current line of .293, 5 and 19 would lead him to a full-season line of .293 AVG, 35 HR, 133 RBI. Sure, the power is subdued, but the hitting is improved. Factor in his stealth defensive work (0 errors) so far, and you’re looking at a complete player.

Oh, and he’s only on pace for 176 strikeouts.
