False.

Even this year in only 122 games ARod had a better rWAR than 3 out of the last 4 full seasons for Howard.

Plus the AL allows him to be a DH.


That's because Howard is a painfully bad 1st baseman which kills his WAR.


Even in oWAR his last 4 healthy seasons were
2.0
3.9
2.4
2.3

The last 2 years ARod was
2.3
2.3

But that was in 99 and 122 games respectively.

He's still hitting better and if you keep him as a DH with a start at 3B here and there he'll remain healthier.

I'd trade Howard for ARod whether I'm a NL or AL team.


Good point, I forgot to take into consideration GP.

On a side note, does anyone know how they calculate WAR?

Fangraphs.com has a nice glossary. Should explain most everything.
