The Dodgers have shattered the all-time record for most home runs in a season for any team in National League history.
250 home runs is a lot of home runs. Like a lot — and the season is not even close to being over.
Setting records. ?

Joc Pederson has been red hot, so it was only fair that he was the one to break the record for the record for the Dodgers.
Cody Bellinger has represented the biggest chunk of the Dodgers’ home run total this season as he continues his quest to be Major League Baseball’s Home Run King in 2019. His 44 round-trippers represent a whopping 17.6 percent of the Dodgers’ home run total for the season. Joc Pederson has chipped in 32 of his own — good for 12.8 percent — and Max Muncy chipped in 33, or 13.2 percent of the total.
Between three guys, that is 43.6 percent of all of the club’s record-setting collection of home runs. Absurd. Justin Turner even has 27 to add to the ledger.
The Dodgers have been historically good this season and this record only adds to the plethora of the ones they have broken this season. We could be looking at the greatest team in Dodgers history. Let’s just hope they can put on this type of power display where it matters most: October.
