I wish people would calm down about this guy. Yes, he's currently a great hitter but he doesn't have even 250 career HR. Pujols needs a lot more years of similar production to even make this discussion relevant.
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.
