    Lots of hate around here.

    Keep following the pied piper (media).

    If this is McGwire passing Aaron, why do I think we'd be celebrating this? Bud Selig is a scum bag for not being there and shaking Barry's hand. He helped create this mess by turning a blind eye to the steroid problem in the mid-late 90's. Juiced balls? Remember that argument? It was pretty obvious 10 years ago that the players were juiced, not the balls. Why roast one guy, when i'm guessing that 20-30% of major league ballplayers were experimenting with roids?

    Bonds..McGwire...Sosa...Clemens?...Sheffield...Gag ne...
    Caminiti...Palmeiro...Giambi...This list goes on and on.

    Put an * next to Babe Ruth.. He played in an era when the best players did not pay in MLB, they played in the negro leagues.

    Put an * next to Hank Aaron..He played his last 7 seasons in a tiny ballpark.

    I'm in no way a Barry Bonds fan, but I respect him as a baseball player. He's right up there with the best ballplayers of all time.

    If he was a lifetime Dodger player, i'm guessing all of the Dodger fans that were booing, would be standing and cheering this moment. Just like the Giant fans were last night.

    Congrats to Barry on hitting 756.

    If he didn't roid it up he'd have finished at around 600.

    He's a dick.

    He plays for my most hated team in baseball.

    The media didn't need to tell me any of this, but thanks for playing. I've got plenty of hate though.

    Maybe it's not all the HGH and/or Steroids. Check this article out concerning his armguard.

    You don't know much about society or baseball? Or you think race has something to do with this?

    Bud Selig is a scum bag for not being there and shaking Barry's hand.
    As the MLB commissioner he represents baseball. Baseball (like all sports) it's nothing more than entertainment. Without fans to be entertained there wouldn't be professional baseball. Selig not being there to celebrate an * was a perfect way to represent what the fans think.

    He helped create this mess by turning a blind eye to the steroid problem in the mid-late 90's. Juiced balls? Remember that argument? It was pretty obvious 10 years ago that the players were juiced, not the balls.
    Selig is partly to blame, no doubt.

    Why roast one guy, when i'm guessing that 20-30% of major league ballplayers were experimenting with roids?

    Bonds..McGwire...Sosa...Clemens?...Sheffield...Gag ne...
    Caminiti...Palmeiro...Giambi...This list goes on and on.
    First, your guess means nothing. Second, while lots of guys were probably juiced how many of them have evidence (circumstantial or not) against them for doing so? Even out of that list you gave there are some guys you're taking a blind guess on. Third, Bonds is the only one breaking records right now. We aren't roasting Sosa because the guy is hitting .243 with 16 HR. Sammy would be getting killed if he was going for the triple crown.

    Put an * next to Babe Ruth.. He played in an era when the best players did not pay in MLB, they played in the negro leagues.
    More speculation. Were there plenty of great players in the negro leagues? Of course. You don't know if they were the best. Furthermore baseball was king back then. Bonds is playing in an era where the best players are on a court or football field. Should we add another * to 756 because of that?

    Put an * next to Hank Aaron..He played his last 7 seasons in a tiny ballpark.
    Now your comparing ballparks dimensions to steroids and segregation. C'mon guy.

    I noticed you left out the number of at bats Bonds has had compared to Ruth. Convenient considering that has more of an impact on HR totals than anything you've mentioned. Guess we can just call it 756***

    I'm in no way a Barry Bonds fan, but I respect him as a baseball player. He's right up there with the best ballplayers of all time.

    Maybe, that's why they are called fanatics. Too bad we will never know. Until that happens it is the Giants fans who are crazy and delusional, not the ones in LA.

    The size of his head there is more telling and probably more effective than the asterik. They should just put that in the record book next to his HR total--on a fold-out page, of course.

    Race does have something to do with it, but the majority is the fact he's a roider and a giant douchebag.

    The guy followed Bonds all week last week. Why is everyone making such a big deal of him not going back for another week? Who cares? I don't expect the commissioner to chase the guy for weeks on end until he hits it.

    I disagree. You really can't compare an era where there were only white players to what we have now. It was unquestionably a lesser league with segregation.

    Not really. The record is obviously mostly about HR hitting ability, but longevity is a large part of it. That's not a criticism--it's a compliment to others who lasted longer in the game.
