It's difficult to say how many home runs Griffey will finish with. Last year, he played in more games (144) than he had in seven years. But although he has stayed healthy and has appeared in 61 games in 2008, he has just seven homers this season. Right now, he projects to an 18-homer, .260 season as a 38-year-old outfielder. There are many in baseball who, in hindsight, would have much preferred that it was this son of a major leaguer rather than Bonds who had scaled the mountain that is Aaron's home run totals. This much is clear, though, while Bonds' Hall of Fame fate may hinge on the outcome of a federal indictment related to performance enhancing drugs, Griffey's path to Cooperstown will be an easy home run trot.
