Albert Pujols has already reached 700 home runs

One of the great attractions throughout the 2022 MLB season without a doubt it has been the tour of the retirement of Albert Pujols, who together with his compadre Yadier Molina and possibly the veteran Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals, are playing their last season as professionals in the Major Leagues. All this seasoned with the fact that Pujols is looking for the mythical mark of 700 home runs, but what if he already reached it a long time ago?

Officially, Pujols has 698 home runs to his name in his Major League career, but unofficially, he has 717 in his MLB career… Of course, if we count the 19 he has hit in the playoffs in that number, so I could say that ‘The Machine’ has already unofficially reached the ‘magical’ 700 homers.

Unfortunately, MLB does not count the numbers in the postseason to the career totals of the players, so only those achieved in the regular season are worth, something contradictory, since it is assumed that what is done in the playoffs clearly has a greater value over time. made in the regular season.

If we were to count their numbers in the playoffs, the top 4 home runs in MLB would look like this: Barry Bonds 771 (762 in the regular season and 9 in the playoffs), Hank Aaron 761 (755 in the regular season and 6 in the playoffs), Babe Ruth 729 (714 in the regular season and 15 in the playoffs) and Albert Pujols 717 (698 in the regular season and 19 in the playoffs).

I started as a rookie at Al Bat in early 2018 and am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world capital of shrimp, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived for a while in Australia; I survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
