'Thirty-Four' Has 'Thirty-Four' Games To Get Seven HRs

David Ortiz (#34) has thirty-four games left to hit the 500 career home run mark this season. After clouting his 493rd career round-tripper yesterday, Big Papi will get roughly 135 more at-bats to nail seven more 'taters'. That's a home run every twenty at-bats. This is now well within the realm of possibility—and would salvage some degree of dignity for the 2015 season. Last season, Ortiz hit a home run every 14.8 at bats—for a total of 35. He has 27 right now. This could be a fun last month!
