published August 26, 2001


Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa has more home runs since the start of 1998 than anybody else in the majors. He no longer is a one-dimensional player, but is a more selective hitter (93 walks this season). The result: 49 HRs, 129 RBI, 125 strikeouts and a .731 slugging percentage. Here are the home run leaders since 1998:
