I was having this debate a few days ago, so these stats are a tad old, but...
- Code: Select all
EBH HR RBI K AVG/OBP/SLG EQA WARP RATE2 RAA2
Albert Pujols: 28 39 109 39 .317/.420/.655 .341 9.0 112 +14
Ryan Howard: 18 49 129 159 .301/.395/.640 .325 6.0 90 -12
And Howard is having the MVP season? Take out the time Pujols missed and he bridges the gap in RBI and makes the HRs a whole lot tighter too.
For me, it's a one horse race, and Albert's leading the pack.
If you take out the time Pujols missed, yeah, he's probably ahead. But he did miss that time, and it was time spent not being valuable to his team. It may be a little basic as far as analysis goes, but 10HR and 20 RBI is a pretty noticeable difference.
And how on Earth is Howard showing negative for WARP there?
