Hell of an achievement, especially to hit 40 home runs in the cavernous RFK Stadium.

Also, if the Nationals think they can re-sign him, they're completely wrong. A guy coming off something that's only been done 4 times in MLB history is going to command at least $15 million in the market.

He's gotta be pound for pound one of the strongest guys who ever played the game. He proves that you don't need to be big to be strong.

Congrats to him. It is quite an accomplishment. Maybe a year not too far away, we will all get the pleasure of him chasing 50/50. It would take an incredible season, but I wouldn't put it past him.

I was at the game. Awesome! Everyone in the crowd knew what was gonna happen as soon as he got on. He got a real nice ovation, I joined in. That's an awesome accomplishment.

It's his hands and wrists. It's incredible.

He has one of the livest bats in the game, but by just looking at him you'd never know it.
