HR King in 30 Years.....


So Barry looks to be set to track down the Hammerin Hank....

But with or without steroids, the game has changed....

500 Homers doesn't mean what it used to...

Soon, you may be saying the same about 600 and 700

So really, in the year 2037, who do you think will be the HR King of baseball??

Re: HR King in 30 Years.....


Albert and Alex will probably be the HR king in 30 years. Both are great hitters and have a ton of power. You also left out Ryan Howard, Miguel Cabrera [sign in to see URL] those guys have a very good shot at the title too.

The younger players have the best chance I guess.

Dont know that Arod will continue to be healthy and hit like he is. After this year he wont have the protection so his #'s will drop. Also we already saw that Pujols in the first game is gonna get pitched around as he no longer has the protection.

Re: HR King in 30 Years.....


The home run record has to do with longetivity... and in my opinion that is the hardest part. I believe Barry will hold the record for a very long time.

Look at Griffey Jr. he was supposed to be the guy to take down Aaron, right? Sure thing, right? Wrong. Staying healthy and CONSISTENT over 20+ years... that is the hardest part.

albert and alex have the best shot but they basically have to stay healthy for 20 years. howard has no chance, hes just started too late.

Re: HR King in 30 Years.....


If A-Rod continues to play and stays healthy I think he is the eventual HR champ. With 464 HR at 31 years of age and a great shot at reaching the 500 club this year he looks unstoppable. He has ten years with 35+ HR, seven of those 40+, and with players staying in the game longer, remaining healthier and productive longer, if the desire to walk away doesn't become too much, he's the man.

I don't know about ARod, Jimmy Foxx was on a similar pace but with modern science, ARod could stick around awhile.

Pujols would be the one that I would give the best odd to.

Pojols gets my vote. I was enlightened in the 2006 WS as to his ability to just dominate an AB. I expect him to hit every pitch into the seats.

Re: HR King in 30 Years.....


My guess even though he isnt on the list, and if he can get out of Florida is Miguel Cabrera.

That dude can flat out rake and puts up good numbers in that hell hole of a stadium.
