9. Palmeiro 569*
10. Jackson 563
11. Schmidt 548
12. Griffey 543
13. Mantle 536



Sitting at 543 right now, and you have to figure he has at least 4 years left. How many do you think he gets to?

649

And that's pretty generous. I figure he plays in the AL as a DH somewhere down the line.

He can reach 700, but only if he moves over to the AL and splits his time between being an OF and DH. Will he choose that route? Maybe, maybe not. If not, let's hope he can defy gravity and hold steady like the Rock of Gibraltar, despite all the chipping away at his youth and health.

Probably won't happen, but still, a classy player, a classier human being and great role model for our kids. Really glad he was part of Reds history, even in turbulent times for the team.

605. Junior is going to call it quits after his REDS contract is up.

Somewhere in the 630 range.

Jr will stay to wipe away the record, whoever owns it. 770.

I don't think Juniors ego will cause him to stick around for years and years. I think he will give it up most likely when his Reds contract expires. Wouldn't be suprised if he signs a cheap one year deal or something after our contract runs out. I think it really depends on his health from here on out.

He'd be near 50.

I never said my guess made sense, just stiring up conversation.

Even though he is my favorite player and I enjoy and love every inning he plays in a Reds uniform, I hope he signs with someone who can help him win a World Series after his Cincinnati contract is up.

There is no player in this game today who deserves a World Series ring more than Ken Griffey, Jr.

He will hit the 650 mark as he leaves the Reds to join a WS Contender for 2 years where he goes onto hit another 65 home runs giving him a grand total of 715 :) I hope...........

Ahh, flying pig got it first. I was also going to say 661.

I'll go with the dreaded 666.

Flying pig also beat me to 661, so I'll go with 663.
The injuries this decade cost him the opportunity to reach Ruth/Aaron/what's his name territory, which makes surpassing Willie Mays's 660 a logical goal, assuming there aren't additional serious injuries.
In a worst case scenario, I hope he can at least reach the 600 mark, passing most of the recent steroid heroes in the process.

I wish he'd stayed healthy....Griffey would be chasing Aaron, and Bonds chasing Griffey.

With that, I'd say Junior gets 635

606 He sticks around to get 600 and then rides off into the sunset as #5 all time! I think he would love to break 660, but not sure his legs will allow it. Plus I seem to recall him last week or the week before saying Tre' wanted him to hang around so many years (don't recall the exact #, 4 more maybe) and he wasn't going for it.

Yea, that sure would have been nice.

Either way, I think A-Rod is going to run them all into the ground. He's at 442 and he's only 30. Averaging 35 homers for 9 years will put him at 757. I think he's got a pretty good chance of getting there. I think he'll far exceed 35 for the first few years which should give him room for injuries or loss of production later in his career.

I think Junior will go all the way to 675.
