Pujols now No. 13 on all-time HR list

With two homers on Monday, Albert Pujols passed Reggie Jackson on the all-time home run list with 565. He's only four more away from No. 12 Rafael Palmeiro, but he'll have to crank out bombs this season to catch Mark McGwire and crack the top 10.

Albert Pujols passed Reggie Jackson on the all-time home run list on Monday night, blasting his 564th and 565th home runs. Is he greater home run hitter than Jackson? Baseball-Reference has a fun tool where you convert a player's stats to a neutral run-scoring era. Under this method, Pujols translates to 559 home runs but Reggie moves up to 603 home runs. Pujols has been the much better hitter overall (159 OPS+ to 139), but Reggie was pretty good in the power department.
