With Lance Berkman of the Houston Astros constantly crushing balls that have reached the bleacher seats in the outfield, he is currently leading the major leagues in home runs with 10 dingers. His slugging percentage have been superb (.595). One question, will Berkman cool off like what Luis Gonzalez basically did last year in the end of the season, or is he for REAL? We will just have to wait and see.

Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants was hot in hitting homers in the beginning of the season. YET, in the past nine or ten days, he has not hit a home run in a while. Yes, McCovey's Cove is probably heckling saying that that their boat rental has been a waste. Is this Bonds's fault? Maybe and maybe not. He has been fighting off a hamstring injury, and has been brave enough to play. One thing for certain is that he will get more than 40 home runs this year, but I seriously doubt that Willie Mays' godson will break his record from last year. I just don't see that happening.

Sammy Sosa, may be the hottest of the three right now, but his home runs aren't as much as Berkman's. Yet, he is a constant hitter with an OPS of over 1.000 and a slugging percentage of .670, which if he keeps this up, may come close to Bonds' slugging percentage record last year, .830. He and Bonds are currently tied for second in dingers, but will this be Sosa's year in winning the home run race? We shall see in September.

He's only 26 and plays in a hitter's park.
