If Howard has the likes of Utley, Werth, Ibanez etc hitting around him in the batting order, shouldn't he technically be able to put up higher numbers than Braun, even if his batting average is lower and he strikes out alot?
This is really not a difficult decision. R.Braun is the choice.
Braun will hit for a higher average. You forgot to mention also that Braun will steal alot more bases.
The Phillies offense is down this year. R.Ibanez has been awful. C.Utley and R.Howard's averages have been slipping. J.Rollins is hurt.
