    And incredibly, EVERY SINGLE one of them came with an 8-run lead.

    You never know, but it's hard to imagine he doesn't have a few more of these seasons in him. Would be pretty amazing to blow everyone away, the Babe included, in this measure.

    He's 2nd in 40-HR seasons, but still a few behind Ruth.

    Tied for 5th in 30-HR seasons, a few behind Aaron.

    Three 50-HR seasons, one behind Ruth, Sosa, and McGwire.
