With about six weeks of regular season baseball left in this as of yet unnamed decade (The Aughts? 2000's? The O's? What do we call this decade anyway?),and some spare time at work, I put together a little list of the top home run "heroes" of the decade.
Enjoy this two-part episode. Part one will be numbers 50-26. Go ahead and guess what part two will be. With good luck, and some co-operation from my dying laptop, part-two will be ready soon for your viewing pleasure.
Each player will be listed with his decade home run total. Also included are his teams, decade season high total and any season in which he led his league in round-trippers. In cases where a player did not appear in every season this decade, it will be noted.
In the event of a tie, the edge goes to the player with fewer games played this decade. It only seems fair. All stats are as of August 18, 2009.
So what do you think? Will any of these players be on the list for the Teens' best home run hitters? Which of these big hitters will land in Cooperstown? Let me know in the comments!
So with no further ado, your 2000-2009 home run leaders, No. 50-26. Enjoy!
