Based on Griffey's HR per AB totals from this season, it looks like he has just fallen off pace to hit 600 by year's end. He is currently projecting out to 36 HRs on the Year, placing him at 599 to end the season.
Imagine the scramble for Opening Day tickets with Junior sitting at 599?!? Wouldn't that be amazing! Talk about a "Welcome to your 20th MLB Season".
Not likely you say? Jr is 2nd on the all time list with 7 Opening Day home runs. Should he hit 600 on Opening Day, it would tie him for first all time with Frank Robinson. Hitting 601, a 2 HR game, would be even sweeter
Its a lot of ifs, maybes, and speculation, but it would sure make for some thrills!
