Some interesting stats


Recommended Posts

To some of you this may not come as a surprise, but I know a ton of people are swayed by Howards "context-dependant" stats in his HR and RBI, so take a minute to check this out...


Also keep in mind that Howard of course is playing at hitters heaven in CBP, while Pujols is playing at a neutral/pitchers park in new Busch Stadium.


Bolded indicates an advantage for the given player. I didn't bold Pujols' hits, but given the discrepancy in AB, Pujols would've definitely put up more hits if given those 2 weeks back.

More relevant than who had the most RBI's or runs are the more important stats like OBP, SLG and how they performed w/ RISP.



Exactly my point, All context dependant stats aside, Pujols clearly had the better year.


I couldnt find Pujols' BA w/ RISP, but I remember reading somewhere back around the end of the season that it was in the .390's.
