    What might of been…

    Back in 2007, I predicted a short life for Barry Bonds’s home run record. Alex Rodriguez was on pace to blow by it. Plus it looked like after A-Rod set it, Albert Pujols would be right on his tail and likely passing him up. A-Rod will fall short with 696 career home runs, but Pujols […]
