Barry Bonds equalled Babe Ruth's record for home runs today - but who really cares. His accomplishment is shrouded
Barry is also an AHOLE towards fans & the media which is why a lot of BBall folk don't take this tying Babe's record with respect.
Babe will always be #2 & Hammerin Hank # 1 in home runs. Until Ken Griffey Jr.
I was going to address the whole Bond thing as soon as he hit 715. When he hit #661 to pass Mays, I acknowledged two facts few would disagree with. He's an asshole and he might just be the best damn player to play the game. Unfortunately, he's not only an asshole, but he's a cheater too. I'm okay with him being an asshole, I'm not okay with him taking the clear or the cream.
The fact of the matter is that the Babe will soon be #3, just like the number he wore throughout his career. Bonds will soon be #2 and Hank Aaron will remain the top dog with his 755. Here's hoping Bonds doesn't hit another 41.
