New Home Run Record

Discussion in the Records and Milestones forum
New Home Run Record
I would be curious if people think anyone can break the current single season home run record? If so, who has the best shot?

I think Tyrone Woods (Dragons) and Lee Seung Yeop (Giants) have a pretty good chances, if they stay healthy. Other people that should contend are Matsunaka (Hawks), Zuleta (Marines), Kanemoto (Tigers), Cabrera (Seibu), etc.

I have a feeling that the record will be broken this season.

Woods will definitely be up there. Matsunaka's days of hitting tons of homers are probably over. He'll be lucky to hit 20 this year with the angle he hits the ball. Kanemoto has been a 20-30 homer guy his entire career. I don't see that trend changing when he's close to 40 years old. Cabrera is in the same stage of his career as Matsunaka. His days of 40+ homers are probably over.

In my opinion, I think if he stays healthy and focused, Tuffy Rhodes will be challenging that title again this year. He's a man on a mission this year.
