But he's still a productive player who toed for the league lead in RBI's last year. And would come at about a 1/3 the cost of pujols
Really? You do realize that Howard will be making $20 million in 2011 and then will be a FA dont you?
Yeah. More expensive in the short term. But he will get no where near the 300 million pujols will get.
Don't get me wrong pujols is a lot better but Ryan Howard is no slouch and would be still very productive.
Also are Wainwright and Franklin locked up?
