Ryan Howard = 40+ HR's ???

I certainly understand it's spring training, but this guy is en fuego right now with his 7 HR's, and he's keeping down his K's big time (6 in 34 AB"S).. Could we see a 45 HR, 115 RBI, .295 ave type season here?

Dunno. Just take ST stats for what they are worth...nothing. Let's see what he does in April before we up the projections from 30-35 Hrs to 45.

I'm going to guess his average isn't that high unless he really improved his contact rate over last year. He's an older prospect so its always possible, the next 3 years are likely to be his best ever.

It is impossible for him to hit .295 with 45 home runs. The only way he can reach 45 homers is if he plays against lefties. The only way he has .295 average is if he sits against lefties. Therefore, it is very very unlikely that he reaches both

I would by no means say 45 HRs is impossible, not 100% likely, but definitely not impossible.

Ill say that based on what I have seen since after last years allstar break, he hits between 30 to 50 bombs with between 90-120 rbi's and should hit somewhere around .280. Just my opinion. I think playing in Philly will inflate his numbers but that is ok.
