Interesting, but I can't see letting Johna Santana go at $10. And Howard's average has been sliding rapidly the past couple of seasons. making him a bit of a risk?
Santana/Howard a push.
Howard had a unlucky hit rate % of 29% last year, way under his norms or 37/36/34.
His xBA the last 2 years was .277 and .284, not bad.
I could make the same argument on Santana. His DOM rate has been dropping
Add in his xERA last year was 3.62, because of a lucky 83% strand rate.
So Santanas DOM rate is in decline, his xERA has risen the last 3 years, and he's hurting a bit now. I could see taking Santana, but i'm sticking with Howard.
