  • Philadelphia Phillies' Rhys Hoskins is cheered in the dugout after hitting a two-run home run during the first inning of a baseball game against the Chicago Cubs Friday Aug. 25 2017 in Philadelphia

The last of those home runs, hit Sunday afternoon in anther win against the Padres, was Stanton's 50th of the year.

Stanton picked up his second such honor of the month after continuing his scorching second half in the Miami Marlins' seven games. With five weeks to go in the 2017 season, however, and Stanton's 50th homer his 24th in his last 41 games, it feels like 60 is within reach even if Stanton slows down a bit. He is now hitting.296 this season. It was Stanton's 17th homer in August, which tied for the second-most in Major League Baseball history in that month. He now has 29 since the start of July.

That's a pretty solid blast, easily clearing the wall in right-center field (407 feet from home plate), and it's another notch in what's been a remarkable month for Stanton. While Stanton's value might be at an all-time high, it would behoove the Marlins to hold on to the slugger and let him set any potential records with them. The bad news, at least as it pertains to Stanton's chase, is there's really no reason for any of those teams in the playoff hunt to risk pitching to Stanton in the middle of a pennant race.

While Stanton isn't almost the overall hitter Bonds was in his prime, it's worth noting Bonds walked 46 times in his final 33 games of 2001 ... almost one every three plate appearances.
