Home Runs Home Runs Home Runs

Last night Albert Pujols hit his 521st home run in Seattle against the Mariners in the 1st. Pujols is now tied for 18th on the all time home run list with Ted Williams, Willie McCovey and Frank Thomas. It was a 2 run shot that reached the second deck in left field at Safeco Field. Next up on the home run list is Jimmie Foxx at 534 which if Pujols stay healthy he’ll surely pass this season.

Adrian “Gonzo” Gonzalez is HOT. He hit 3 homers last night against the San Diego Padres. That brings Gonzo’s season total to 5 in 3 games. Gonzo has always been a great contact hitter but after checking his lifetime stats he has only hit 40 homers once in 2009. Last year he had 27. Will Gonzo keep the heat on or start to fizzle as the season continues?
