A-Rod (9) + Bay (9) + Tex (4) = 22.

What's the record for differential between # 1 and # 2 in HR's?

1921 and 1922 Ruth had 35 more than #2. I didn't look at every year but those are my guesses.

In 1921 2nd place had 19, and 1922 2nd place had 24. Amazing, he more than double 2nd place. 8-o

Well, I guess Pujols won't do that. But he will probably finish with 20-30 more homeruns than either Tex or A-Rod.

As an A-Rod owner, I'd like nothing better.

But, you can safely predict A-Rod's season HR totals by multiplying his April + May stats by 3. He's not the type to struggle early and then go nuts late.

2001: 17HR in April-May, 52 HR for the year
2002: 17 HR in April-May, 57 HR for the year
2003: 15 HR in March-May, 47 HR for the year
2004: 12 HR in April-May, 36 HR for the year
2005: 17 HR in April-May, 48 HR for the year

Bottom line is that those expecting him to hit 40+ for the year are in for a big disappointment.


I can't see how you can say that - it's May 21. At his current pace, in which he hasn't hit a homerun in a week, he hits around 35. Let him get even slightly hot and hit 4 hr in the last 10 days of the month, and he's on pace for about 40. Get even hotter, hit 6 hr in the final 10 days of the month, which he's fully capable of, and he's on pace for 45.

To say unequivocally that he's not going to hit 40 is absurd.

He needs to figure out how to hit righthanded pitching before we can take that prospect seriously. OPS of .790 against RHP this year.

He's got Kelly Stinnett protecting him in the lineup. Good luck with that.

So the first decade of his career, he's put up those monster numbers solely against left-handed pitching?

No, but this is a down year from him. His numbers at this point are remarkably similar to what he did in 2004. Except he's not stealing bases this year, despite getting walked a ton because he has no protection.

My guess would be one of the year's that Ruth started to hit a ton of homers.

Probably the year that he doubled the previous record.


Ruth twice out-homered all other major leaguers by 35 (1920, 1921), easily the record. Also, in 1926 he outhomered all MLers by 26 and in 1928 by 23.

A much more difficult question is what is the biggest differential in, say, the post-WWII era?
