The Home Run Kings
Bonds, on the other hand, is quietly creeping up on Hank Aaron's all-time record. Since Barry has become such a black sheep, everyone has stopped paying attention to his 24 home runs this year. By the way, he still leads MLB in on base percentage. Did you know that Barry has never hit 50 home runs in any season other than his record setting 73? Back to my point though, Barry has piled up 732 home runs at this point, and the all-time record is just 755. If Barry plays next year, he'll need just 23 home runs, and that's assuming he doesn't get any more this season. This is bad, really really bad. How would you like to see Barry Bonds break Hank Aaron's all-time record as a DH for the Blue Jays? Things like that are not too unreasonable. If Barry can play next year, chances are he'll taint the record books once again. Is Barry like the Michael Jackson of baseball or something?
