I doubt he hits 50. 48 I'm picking.

2 weeks left and he seems keyed in. I wouldn't bet against 50.

This will be a pretty quiet 50 HR season. Howard exceeded 50 last year and was the making ESPN headlines nightly.


Both are pretty comparable in value next year, although the AVG edge should be 20 points in Prince's favor.

Yeah, Fielder's a better pure hitter. He isn't afraid to go opposite field and as such I think his batting average should be ahead of Howard's in most seasons. Howard is capable of hitting .300 (as his MVP year showed), but I think he's equally capable of .250-.260. I think Fielder's going to sit mostly in the .280-.290s with a few seasons up to and over .300. Ryan Howard will be 28 at the start of next season, Fielder will be 23. He's only 23 years old -- he should actually get better. His plate discipline (and subsequently, batting average) should continue to improve.

in case you have never seen ryan howard hit homeruns, he goes opposite field better than anyone else in the league. In fact, I clearly remember saying to one of my friends last year that, that was one of my favorite things about ryan howard. I personally think both of these guys go .280 on a regular basis...

47 down, 3 to go!

On another note, I agree with the post above that this may be the quiest 50 HR (or near-50) season in history. He's 23 years old and there's the father-son 50-50 club thing. But he isn't getting half the coverage that Howard got last year. I suspect the Bonds HR record and Arod's space-alien season are overshadowing everything else.

I also don't see Fielder in many top-10 keeper lists. I dunno, a 23-year-old guy who hits 50 HR with a legitimate 290+ average? Sounds like top-10 material to me.

I'm ecstatic that I get to keep this guy. I don't think this will be his last 50 homer season.
