I agree with Ocelot, 18 isn't alot considering baseball has been around for over 100 years.
As far as a single season, I would say 30 is considered a good amount of homers in a season. Here is a list of the top 6 single season homerun totals:
1. Barry Bonds 73 in 2001
2. Mark McGwire 70 in 1998
3. Sammy Sosa 66 in 1998
4. Mark McGwire 65 in 1999
5. Sammy Sosa 64 in 2001
6. Sammy Sosa 63 in 1999
All in the last five years, just goes to show you how the players are so much bigger and stronger than players in the past. I'll never forget
McGwire's 70 in 1998 because when he set the record at the time, the record he broke was Roger Maris' in 1961, it stood for 37 years and many people
thought it would never be broken. Then Barry Bonds' 73 last year, that's incredible considering he also set the record for walks meaning that he
didn't see many good pitches and still knocked out 73, amazing!
