Alex Rodriguez is going to be 36 at the end of the 2010 season, and he is under contract with the Yankees until 2017 when he will be 43 years old. Entering the 2010 season A-Rod will have 583 HRs. Assuming he ends his career with the Yankees in 2017, Alex Rodriquez will need to hit an average of 26 home runs a season to break Barry Bond's all time record of 762.


It is not far fetched to say that A-Rod will break Bond's record. Although he is not in the prime of career anymore, A-Rod still has the potential to hit 40 HRs a season, for what seems like the next couple of years. Assuming he stays injury free, it is not an impossible task for A-Rod. 

Even though I am not the biggest A-Rod fan, after the admission of him using steroids, I am still a Yankee fan and I would love to see the person who breaks the record in a Yankee uniform.
