The big debate right now is about whether or not Barry Bonds should be in the hall of fame, but that's not what this is about. This is about Barry's record of 762 career home runs. When will it be broken, if ever? The two active players with the best chance are A-rod and Albert Pujols. Here's a quick breakdown of those two...
Alex Rodriguez- 647 HRs, (115 away from Bonds) 17 HR per year last 2 years, 37 years old, 5 years left on contract
Albert Pujols- 475 HRs, (287 away from Bonds) 36 HR per year last 3 years, 32 years old, 9 years left on contract
A-rod has had a lot of recent injuries, Pujols has played at least 140 games every year of his career.
So which of these two will break the record? Or if neither one does, is there anybody else who could?
What could have been if Griffey Jr wasn't always hurt...Griffey wasnt as good of a roider as bonds , bonds had a way better work ethic and trained a lot harder . All around bonds was the better player .
