In his first full season in the majors, the National League MVP hit .313 with 58 homers and 149 RBIs. Howard is an obvious first-round pick, and Pujols only gets the nod because he's done it longer and will post a superior average. The only thing that could slow Howard's power numbers will be who's batting behind him. The Phillies' slugger walked 108 times in '06, and pitchers will likely take their chances with No. 5 hitter Pat Burrell, who led the NL in strikeouts looking last season.
