The last time that an NL team had 6 regular players in the lineup that each had 20+ HRs? I have no clue whether it may have happened several times last year or whether it was a single team more than 20 years ago.

If the Bucs were to keep this current team on the field and there were no injuries to the regulars, there is a chance that McClouth, Nady, Bay, Doumit, Bautista and LaRoche could each top 20 HRs this year. Bautista, to me, is the one who is the biggest question mark to get there.

1965 Milwaukee Braves:

Joe Torre (27)
Felipe Alou (23)
Eddie Matthews (32)
Mack Jones (31)
Hank Aaron (32)
Gene Oliver (21)

In the AL, the 2000 Blue Jays and the 1996 Orioles each had seven players with 20 HRs.

Man, Felipe with 20? Any Alou with 20+?

Wilton, take notice. I told you Aaron played in a lauching pad his whole career.

Thanks. BTW, the Milwaukee Brewers are knocking on this door as well this year. There may be others . . . .

Actually, I think Felipe was the Alou brother with the most pop. I'll have to check. Matty couldn't hit 20 if he played on my son's Little League field.

Hey, I thought you could combine all the pop in all the Alou's, and get 35 career HR's,.... in Atlanta!

All the pop makes a lot of pee for Moises' hands...too bad he wasnt ever able to find a urine recipe to keep him injury free

I recall four Dodgers hitting 30 homers in one season, and three Braves hitting 40 homers in one year!

Felipe was the best of the lot and a heck of a player.
