    I'd have never expected the pace this late, but the Twins are STILL on pace for over 300 homers...and still have a .500 slugging percentage for the season

    ....if only they'd not decided their rotation didn't need help (well I'm sure they tried)
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Pace of as today is 318.11

    They are on pace to break the MLB record for home runs in a season at 267 on their 136th game of the season, which would be Sunday September 1st!

    They'd still have the entire month of September to pile on.

    11 players have double digit home runs, 2 with 30 and 4 with 20

    The 2018 Yankees had 12 players hit 10 or more home runs, which is the record. The Twins are tied with 5 other teams for second place with 11. I don't necessarily see another player reaching 10 though.

    The record for players with 20 or more is 7 (done by 7 teams). I see 8 Twins players doing that. 4 guys are within 4 of 20.

    The record for players with 30 or more is 4 (done by 12 teams). That would be a greater challenge I believe

    Current pace for each player
    (not taking any injuries into account)

    Kepler - 44.18
    Cruz - 44.18
    Rosario - 33.87
    Garver - 29.45
    Cron - 27.98
    Sano - 26.51
    Polanco - 25.04
    Schoop - 23.56
    Gonzalez - 17.67
    Buxton (IL) - 14.73
    Castro - 14.73
    Adrianza - 5.89


    Btw, Trout is on pace for 52.07, Bellinger is on pace for 51.61, and Yelich is on pace for 52.07

    There is another team that is closing in on 300 homers. Giving them up. The Orioles have given up 234 going into today.

    Don't look now, but Yankees are catching up to the Twins in home runs on the season.

    Entering today - Twins are on pace for 315 home runs
    Right now, the Yankees have 2 home runs, and it's the 2nd inning - if they don't hit another homer today, their pace would be - 298.2 home runs

    They have played 2 more games than the Twins right now, but they have already broken the single month team record this month.

    Twins just need 15 more team home runs to break last years record
    4 teams are likely to break last years record.

    I'll be slightly disappointed if the Twins are the new owners of that record after NYY just broke it last year

    And with Ford's additional homer, now their pace is 299.5 home runs.

    ....and the Giants haven't had a single player with a 30+ HR season since 2004. No Giants player with a 20+ HR season since 2015 either.
