    Adam Dunn and Alex Rodriguez, 10-15 years from now could be the biggest names in baseball, Dunn at only age 27, has hit 200+ homers and if he continues the pace he is at in 15 more seasons, he could have almost 900 homers! Dunn has NEVER been accused of taking roids, or Cheating in any way, Rodriguez on the other hand, NEVER been accused, but there has been a noticable body size change that happend in the mid 90's. Arod if he plays 10 more season, which is extremely likely, will easily get to 800 homeruns. he has been hitting 30 homers in each of his last 10 seasons, and if he continues that pace, will crush the Bonds/Aaron record. if bonds is to take the record, a man who has been hated among fans in New York, and a man who people call slick, Error Rod (E-Rod), will be beloved by many amoong america, to knock off Bonds from the top, he might not be the most popular man in the US, but he will be close. Arod has shown no signs of slowing down, and at the rate MLB players work out these days it is very likely he plays 10 more seasons.

    Dunn might be to early to tell, but if he continues the pace, these two guys may be the Ruth/Aaron talks in 20 years from now.

    A Rod will come close to passing Bonds but he wont do it. Dunn.. I have no idea. Thats a while from now.

    The guy that I think will pass Bonds.... RYAN HOWARD

    Dunn stinks IMO. He either hits a homerun or strikes out, with no plate discipline @ all.

    Pujols is the best player in baseball hands down.

    Howard won't do it. He's already 27 and doesn't have 100 homers yet (though he will get it this year). He could hit 50 homers for the next ten years and still won't get it.

    Dunn finish with 900 HR? Listen, just because all the guy can do is either hit a homerun or strikeout doesn't mean he's going to produce like that for another 10+ years (which I highly doubt he does...).

    The two players I see seriously challenging the HR record who are currently in the league are Miguel Caberra and Alex Rodriguez (both are very similar hitters).

    A-Rod and Griffey. That's pretty much it in my opinion.

    Ryan Howard is a strikeout machine. I accidentally drafted him in my keeper league and he's been horrible.

    Of note, Jeter and A-Rod could approach 4,000 hits too.
