    SI 2020 Top 10 HR leaders board

    Got the new Sports Illustrated and the have the PECOTA projection system for what the 2020 all-time HR leaders board will look like.......
    765 Bonds
    755 Hank
    714 Babe
    678 AROD
    660 Mays
    638 Dunn
    637 Griffey
    620 Pujols
    589 Manny Ramirez
    588 Sosa

    If Arod was in a better HR friendley park, he would have a great shot for all-time leader.....IF he stayed in Texas, he would get to 800 easy...He was hitting over 50 every year he played there......I don't see JR getting that high...Dunn should do well long term, especially if he stays in GABP for a long time.....I don't see Bonds playing another year and topping out at around 725...

    I'm assuming you're talking about Super Oranges. Well, it's been discussed and discounted by just about every expert that Dunn only eats tangerines. So there.

    I thought he was talking about Strange Orangutans. We all know how Dunn hangs out with the wrong sort of folks.

    I really don't see what Stargazing Ocelots have to do with Dunn's home run prowess. Frankly, it sounds made up.

    Bonds over Aaron? I don't think so, what do you all think?

    I've seen Adam's Myspace.com page. When you have that many significant others, who cares about homeruns?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    One guy I might put in the 600 club is Jim Thome. I think he is 35 and right around 450 total homers. He may have 4-6 more good years as a DH if he stays healthy. Plays in a very friendley home run park......

    He has 446. I think he'll fall short, but not by much.
