Re: Bonds Hits 755th HR; A-Rod 500th; Zimmerman 37th

He deserves it. I honestly think that the media makes him out to be a bad person because he doesn't give them the time of day. Congrats BBonds I hope you hit 100 more. Im glad he did it and one maybe someone will get it. Its truley exciting to see a milestone in sports like this one. When he fails the steroids test call me bitches.
Bonds played for the Prince William Pirates in like 85 or 86 and one night the power went out in the stadium due to a rainstorm. My dad, brother, and I were there, and I was like Im going to go down and try to get an auto from Bonds because we all knew he was headed to the majors (they pulled his cards out of the local set). I walked down to the fence and the first peron I talked to was Bobby Bonilla, I said he is Barry in there I want his autograph. Bonilla got Bonds and he came over and met me and signed a baseball for me. He was really a nice guy and we talked for a few granted I was 11 or so. I have always thought Bonds was a good guy and just becuase he doesn't give the media the time of day he's a bad guy? Ever think that just because Art Monk never talked to the media is the sole reason he's not in the HOF? Now before you all try to rip me for comparing the two completely different situations think about how the media can skew your opinions to think one way or the other. I believe that the media has turned fans against Bonds. Either way Im a fan of the guy and its really awesome to be old enough and alive to see a milestone record be broken.

What I've heard about Barry, and it's kind of weird, is that he gets along best with the younger players. I've heard a lot of people say that Bonds is a great teammate to guys who are just coming up from the minors or vets who ride the pine. It's the fellow stars that he tends not to get along with.

There are a number of reasons that the players of today are better overall athletes than the players of yesteryear. Year-round training, nutritional supplements, LASIK surgery, and improved medicine have made it possible for these numbers to fall. While Bonds almost certainly imrpoved his numbers using illegal drugs, so too did many players in the past - amphetamines were common, and even supplied in clubhouses as recently as 25 years ago.

I long for the day when a player can hold this record without the taint of a scandal. I also don't know if or when that will happen. But it willbe Barry's record until then.

I want him to break it. He hit those balls with a wooden bat just like all the other guys. It's simple, he derserves it.

You know what's funny? The guy who gave up the homerun, Clay Hensley, is actually someone who did test positive for steroids (or a steroid like substance) and was suspended for several games by baseball. Granted it was in the minor leagues, but still...

No way man. You didn't hear, Barry is the only person in the history of Major League Baseball to do steroids and, despite never testing positive for anything, deserves a lifetime ban and an asterisk next to everything he's ever done. Oh, and he's the devil because of that.

What's funnier? Clay Hensley was demoted to AAA after the game, not because he gave up #755, just because he stinks.
