A-Rod on pace to break Maris AL HR Record

This from David Pinto:

Alex now has seven home runs in 15 games since returning to the Yankees. If you look at his pace as over a 134 game season (he missed the first 28 games, he’s on a pace for 63 homers this year, which would set a new AL record. Imagine if he started the season healthy.

From here

That's kind of crazy, right?

It gets crazier when you consider that A-Rod has seven home runs...and only ten hits over all.

It gets craziest when you consider that Alex's timing is still not quite what it should be, and that he's still a month behind the rest of MLB's hitters.

It's A-Rod's best possible move against the events of the off-season.
