5. Single Season Marlins home run record (42) held by Gary Sheffield

The reason Stanton hasn’t broken (or shattered for that matter) this record is solely due to injury. Throughout his career, Giancarlo averages 41 homers in a 162-game season.

Now, with arguably more power than ever, a healthy season should propel him to well over 42. As mentioned before, he was on pace for 59 home runs this year. With the fences possibly moved in for 2016, 42 should be entirely doable for the righty superstar.
