For a single season record, having 250 career homers doesn't mean much. It's about his season. So far he's shown he can be consistent over a season, but not at this pace. If he holds up something close to this pace then obviously he has a shot at it. Unfortunately I don't see why anyone would pitch to him enough for him to go all year and have enough chances.

Yeah he's been consistent since his career started. At the pace he's going at this season I bet he could break Barry's record, barring any injuries or guys walking him as often as Barry. Considering he's been consistent every year, I wouldn't be surprised to see him being the all time HR leader at the end of his career. Pujols has already shown us that he's one of the best and most consistent, averaging .333, approx 40 HR, and 120ish RBIs in 5 Straight seasons, plus 120ish Runs as well. I think 5 years of this type of production in just his first 5 years of playing proves he has huge things ahead of him.

Hopefully Rolen and Edmonds give him enough protection so that the pitchers continue to pitch to him.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Who said he was refering to a single season record? Its really not clear. If thats the case, yeah its possible.

He says Pujols is three games ahead of Bonds' record-setting pace. I think it's pretty clear he's talking about the single season record.

Sorry, must have missed that as did others who asked the same question.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. If he keeps going at this pace, won't he start getting the Bonds treatment (2001-2004) from pitchers?

I'm going to say no to the single-season record. He just can't keep this pace up. It's certainly not out of the realm of possibility, though. Pujols is that good.

That's the thing about Pujols. If you check his monthly stats over the years, he's not streaky. He consistantly hits every month about the same, so it's even scarier if this is not a streak and it's his new monthly base.
