Watch out Hank Aaron, Bonds is closing in!
 
Bonds hit his 655th career home, only 100 behind Hammerin Hank. Assuming he gets a few more this season, he would need to get about 47 to 50 (pending home runs this season) each season for the next two to tie and break Aaron's home run record. If it doesn't happen in the next two seasons, it will definitely happen in the next three, that is if he wants to break it. I for one hope he does because this is honestly something that not many people can say they have witnessed, that being watching an all time great play the game. With all his accomplishments, all his milestones, everything he has done, he is definitely a top three of all time. It has definitely been great for me to be able to watch him play and to follow him the last several years.

I heard on sportscenter this morning that Bonds doesn't know if he even wants to play baseball anymore because of his dad....or it was something like that. And he also said he doesn't care about any records anymore. So he might be done at the end of the season. But really, I doubt he will retire.

I would compare Bonds to Emmitt Smith and I would compare Mark McGuire to Barry Sanders.

You would have to be a complete moron not to get what I am meaning here.

Bonds is one of the greatest no doubt about that.

I hope he breaks it, I would love to see that.

But like Rebel said I saw that on Sports Center too. He said that he doesn't enjoy the game anymore and that he doesn't want to play. He said he only played because of his dad and that this was it, that he was done.

^^ If thats true than the putz doesnt deserve the record anyway......let him take his bat and go home.

I get what you're saying, but it isn't a very good comparison in my opinion. McGwire retired cuz of injuries pretty much and that he would have to rehab and he didn't think he had it in him to go through it again, while Sanders retired because he was tired of the Lions bullshit.


Bonds is a lot better than McGwire. He has honed his skills this late in his career. He hits for power, average, takes all the walks they give him, rarely strikes out, still has a solid arm, and can steal a base if the situation calls for it in a game. He is the most feared hitter in the game, and probably ever for that matter.

I beg to differ.......

Mark retired cause of the same reason as Bonds in a way. He wanted to spend more time with his son and he has said that breaking the single season record was more important than breaking the career record. When it comes down to it......wich is more memorable?? Mark breaking Rogers record then Sammy breaking it in a way as well........or Bonds Breaking Marks record?

Everyone will remember Mark breaking Rogers record with Sammy chasing Mark the whole year.

Mark was more a class act than Bonds and actually took less money to stay where he was happ in St Luis. He didnt bitch or complain and he didnt demand shit like a 36 inch television in your own PRIVATE clubhouse. And Bonds now saying he doesnt like BaseBall and he did it all for his dad? I didnt hear him say that but if he did Bobby Bonds should be turning over in his grave.

I say this to Barry........with all the muscle enhancers and semi legal steriods that these guys are taking (including McGuire) the record is bound to be broken.........Bonds retire and leave the record in tact and let someone with a Natural swing and not a pumped up one, like Griffey, A-Rod, Jeter or Thomas strive to break it.

So in a way Im glad Mark didnt break it either......all though he was on pace to do it before Bonds would of. And that is what I meant by my post above.

KAM...How can you call Barry a putz because he dosen't want to play anymore...His father died and he no longer feels the compassion and drive he once did...It is totally understandable... His father died...I guess MJ is a putx for retirin' and goin' into Base-Ball 'cause his dad died...No Barry would be a putz if he stayed and played for the money...This just shows that he has a heart...And is not worried about stats or records...

Griffey and A-Rod left for the money...So I'd rather not see those two break it...I read in an interview that Bonds said he only wanted to surpass Babe so nobody would remember that fat pig...LOL...And keep Aaron's in tact...And if that is the case...Good job Barry...

Bonds will break the record and win a championship during the next 2-3 season's and Bonds will go down as the best ever period.
