Can you believe that Albert Pujols is already on this list? Holy mackerel. If he sticks with the Cardinals and hits just 30 HR a year for the next 4-5 years, he can crack the top 10. In this day and age of player movement, it's hard to believe. Of course, if 12 years from now, Pujols finishes up with another team, he drops right off this list.

One Response to “HR leaders playing for 1 franchise or 5+ franchises”

  1. The #10 guy on the 5-team list is way behind the #10 guy on the 1-team list (Joe Carter 396 vs Jeff Bagwell 449), but the #20 guy on the 5-team list is way ahead of the #20 guy on the 1-team list (Dick Allen 351 vs Edgar Martinez 309). Another useless factoid? or does it mean something?
