MLB 2017: Quick Analysis, HR Totals

whether ball is or isn’t juiced, there are 28 guys with 30+ home runs and 30 more between 25-29.
So that’s
FIFTY EIGHT
batters with 25 blasts right now.
 
In 2002, there were 54.
In 1998, there were 52.
in 1987, there were 53 (including Dale Sveum!).
And to look closer, I will assume 23 blasts is the cutoff for guys that, with 15+ games left will ‘likely’ reach 25. Well, that would add another FIFTEEN 25+ HR guys in 2017.
The total would be 73. SEVENTY THREE players with 25+ home runs in 2017.
We’ll check in with final numbers in a couple weeks but, WOW.
And just as a bonus FYI, here are some guys that are, um, interesting to note:
Justin Smoak, 38
Logan Morrison, 36
Mike Moustakas, 36
Jonathan Schoop, 32 
Adam Duvall, 31
Lucas Duda, 29
Corey Dickerson, 26
Scott Schebler, 26
Ryon Healy, 25
Eugenio Suarez, 25
——
Matt Davidson, 24 (in his first career 370 AB)
Scooter Gennett, 24
Joey Bats “only” 22
Paul DeJong, Cardinals shortstop, 22 (in only 359 AB)
Rhys Hoskins, 18 (in 118 AB)
Enjoy the homestretch!!!!
