    And to think, it took a lengthy trip to the DL by Thome for the Phils to give Howard a chance.

    What impresses me the most about Ryan Howard is his ability to hit the ball to all fields with power. IIRC, the majority of his HR are opposite field jobs this year. Not too shabby. Nit-picking on Howard a little bit, his OBP and OPS is too BA driven right now, and I would like to see him improve his BB, and get his career average closer to Dunn's of over 100 BB per year. Once he does that, it should prove to be a great battle of who can accumulate the most MVPs, Ryan Howard or Albert Pujols.

    I just read a good article by Tom Verducci on my original question. It's a pretty decent read.

    Please.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
