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?
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.

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Somewhere in the 630 range.

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