Stat of the day: Home runs in past calendar year

Jul 12, 2009, 11:49 AM EST

Taken from FanGraphs:

Albert Pujols – 51
Ryan Howard -43
Carlos Pena – 41
Miguel Cabrera – 39
Prince Fielder – 39
Adam Dunn – 39
Adrian Gonzalez – 38
Mark Teixeira – 37
Raul Ibanez – 35
Jermaine Dye – 34
Alex Rodriguez – 34
Jason Bay – 34
Mark Reynolds – 34

By the way, if we handed out superlatives for the past year, Albert
Pujols would win the Triple Crown. He leads the National League with a
.351 batting average (only Joe Mauer’s .355 BA bests him) and the
majors with 152 RBI in that time. The next closest run producer is
Justin Morneau, who has knocked in 131 runs in the past year.
