Default Who's Next to Hit 756 Plus Homeruns?

I think A-Rod barring injuries will hit over 800 career homeruns. Andruw Jones may hit 600 but no more. Griffey may end up with close to 700.

Arod will do it.... if he hits only 30HRs for the next 10 years he's at 800.
Hell (this is a fetch) but if he hits 10 more this year... 45 in 2008, 45 in 2009 he'd already be at 600!! That's crazy! If he does not get injured he's a lock IMO

If he can stay healthy over the next 3 or 4 seasons Griffey should reach 700. He should end the year right around 600 and I think he has 3 or 4 more good years in him if he stays healthy that is.

As long as Pujols stays healthy he should approach 700 as well. He should be in the 350-400 range when he turns 30. Which would put him over half way there with what should be 8-10 more good years in front of him.

Its a bit early to speculate on guys like Pujols, but Griffey and A'Rod are within striking distance of this record. Both need to stay healthy. Without the injuries Griffey has suffered over the past decade, he'd likely be about 750 now himself. Bonds would not hold the record long in that case.

I agree about Griffey. He could be well over 700 if he had stayed healthy.

If A-rod stays healthy, he will pass Bonds' number, if Bonds retires after this year. I am hoping someone beats his record. Someone more deserving.
