How cool would this be?


#1

Its only 10 games into the year but already Dustin Pedrioa has 5 homers. Now I’m not saying that he will challenge Roger Maris for the “unofficial” record, but just how cool would it be if he did. Nowadays the home run hitters are the 6’5’’ 230 lbs guys. McGwire, Bonds, and Sosa were all big guys. If Dustin Pedrioa at least challenged for the record (got like 50 hrs or so), I think it would be awesome given the fact that he is like 5’8 170lbs. It would just go to show that even a little guy, who has never used performence enhancing drugs, can still hit as many home runs as a bigger guy who used steroids.

It is cool…
but realistic?

King Albert, Howard or Prince Fielder barely hit 50 homerun’s…
Howard hit 58 in 2006 but all other years are 40+
The king NEVER hit above 50… all 30 and 40+
Prince hit 50 in 2007 and that’s it…
And those three are the top 3 hitters at the moment (although vernon wells and nelson cruz having a top start of the season)
Since 1900 or something there have been 35 hitters with 50 or more homeruns in a single season so 50 is just a lot…

If he homers 30 times this season it would double his personal best and that would be an awesome accomplisment.
