Normally a slow starter in April, Ryan Howard’s big bat has made an early entrance in 2011.
Over all six games, Howard has collected 12 hits, including three doubles, two home runs and eight RBIs. On Wednesday night against the Mets, Howard went 4-for-4 at the plate. He is now batting .480.
If the All-Star first baseman can keep up this pace, he is going to strike fear into the hearts of opposing pitchers all year long.
As for Rollins, he had a very rough 2010 that was plagued with injuries. But he is off to a good start in 2011, which is also a contract year for him.
Batting .375 in the three-hole so far, Rollins may be back to the J-Roll of old.
