The Phillies' first baseman tied the Yankee Hall of Famer's record for knocking in runs in nine straight post-season games.
Howard is inked through 2011. If he keeps hitting at this pace, there will be quite the bidding war for his services. Given their lack of a big-name hitter (which they'll need to rectify before 2011), you can imagine that the Red Sox will be among the bidders for what could be an astronomical contract. Great temperament, heats up when the going is the toughest, improved vastly at first base.
When the clock strikes September, this guy finds an extra gear.
