statement from Hank,

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2007/08/07/sports/s211907D33.D TL


From the desk of Henry Aaron:


I would like to offer my congratulations to Barry Bonds on becoming baseball's career home run leader. It is a great accomplishment which required skill, longevity and determination.


Throughout the past century, the home run has held a special place in baseball, and I have been privileged to hold this record for 33 of those years. I move over now and offer my best wishes to Barry and his family on this historic achievement.


My hope today, as it was on that April evening in 1974, is that the achievement of this record will inspire others to chase their own dreams."

Good for him. I hope for baseball and Barry that he ends up being clean and the record stands untainted. He might be a jerk from time to time, but congrats.

I will not allow myself to watch it......or listen to anything about it on the radio......

Thats the way I choose to "DEAL WITH IT" !!!

To me it's one of the saddest moments in baseball EVER........F*ck Barry !

a damn disgrace........

Of course I don't expect everyone to feel like I do about it.........but I will never see him as the "HR King"

I really used to like Baseball when I was a kid . The Pirates of the early 70's is the team I grew up watching and Roberto Clemente is still my Baseball hero today . I have grown to really not care for Baseball since all the strikes , lockouts etc. from the past decades plus my interests are in Football & Hockey and I just think Baseball is BORING . Managers manage by a book instead of a feel for the game . A pitcher hits his pitch count - better pull him . Whow - I need a lefty to face a lefty hitter , that's it just one hitter he faces . The 8th is approaching , get the setup guy in - He strikes out the side ! Well , you can't leave him in for the 9th - he's not the "closer" ?! A frustrated and bored fan that won't come back !

Spoken by a man with true class. Bravo Hank Aaron - you're still the champ.

Baseball and Football

by George Carlin

Baseball is different from any other sport, very different. For instance, in most sports you score points or goals; in baseball you score runs. In most sports the ball, or object, is put in play by the offensive team; in baseball the defensive team puts the ball in play, and only the defense is allowed to touch the ball. In fact, in baseball if an offensive player touches the ball intentionally, he's out; sometimes unintentionally, he's out.

Also: in football,basketball, soccer, volleyball, and all sports played with a ball, you score with the ball and in baseball the ball prevents you from scoring.

In most sports the team is run by a coach; in baseball the team is run by a manager. And only in baseball does the manager or coach wear the same clothing the players do. If you'd ever seen John Madden in his Oakland Raiders uniform,you'd know the reason for this custom.

Now, I've mentioned football. Baseball & football are the two most popular spectator sports in this country. And as such, it seems they ought to be able to tell us something about ourselves and our values.

I enjoy comparing baseball and football:

Baseball is a nineteenth-century pastoral game.
Football is a twentieth-century technological struggle.

Baseball is played on a diamond, in a park.The baseball park!
Football is played on a gridiron, in a stadium, sometimes called Soldier Field or War Memorial Stadium.

Baseball begins in the spring, the season of new life.
Football begins in the fall, when everything's dying.

In football you wear a helmet.
In baseball you wear a cap.

Football is concerned with downs - what down is it?
Baseball is concerned with ups - who's up?

In football you receive a penalty.
In baseball you make an error.

In football the specialist comes in to kick.
In baseball the specialist comes in to relieve somebody.

Football has hitting, clipping, spearing, piling on, personal fouls, late hitting and unnecessary roughness.
Baseball has the sacrifice.

Football is played in any kind of weather: rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog...
In baseball, if it rains, we don't go out to play.

Baseball has the seventh inning stretch.
Football has the two minute warning.

Baseball has no time limit: we don't know when it's gonna end - might have extra innings.
Football is rigidly timed, and it will end even if we've got to go to sudden death.

In baseball, during the game, in the stands, there's kind of a picnic feeling; emotions may run high or low, but there's not too much unpleasantness.
In football, during the game in the stands, you can be sure that at least twenty-seven times you're capable of taking the life of a fellow human being.

And finally, the objectives of the two games are completely different:

In football the object is for the quarterback, also known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use shotgun. With short bullet passes and long bombs, he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack that punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy's defensive line.

In baseball the object is to go home! And to be safe! - I hope I'll be safe at home!

Barry “Wrecking Ball Head” Bonds is a lying cheat. He should be in politics, not baseball!

I have to agree with this -- in addition to the strikes & lockouts, free agency has been bad for baseball -- it's turned it into a game of greed, of lawyers/agents/no trade clauses/trade vetos etc etc etc -- the statistic for complete games is now an afterthought too -- as you said, it's a much more mechanical & less creative game from a manager's standpoint now.
Have you ever seen the documentary "When It Was A Game"? That says it all -- players are in it strictly for the money, not for the love of the game as depicted in When It Was A Game -- that was the impact of free agency, which in turn brought in the lawyers & agents etc.
I still root for the Bucs -- the Sox are my team but I've always liked the Pirates -- how about Willie Stargell too -- Pops -- what a hitter (my goodness the grief he would take nowadays because of his changed appearance going from a skinny rookie to a bulky older player) -- I believe he's the only player to ever hit a ball completely out of Forbes Field, or perhaps Ebbets Field --
I would love to go to the Pirates' new ballpark, supposedly it's a beautiful facility.

Shameless thread jacking here but this is what Wilkipedia has on Willie Stargell's tape measure homeruns

"He hit seven of the 16 home runs ever hit completely out of Forbes Field

The only player to TWICE hit a ball completely out of Dodger Stadium. The first one was Aug. 5 1969 and measured 506 feet -- to this day the longest ever hit at Dodger Stadium. "I've never seen anything like it. He doesn't just hit pitchers, he takes away their dignity," said LA pitcher Don Sutton

The only player to hit a fair ball into the upper deck at Olympic Stadium in Montreal (1978, off Steve Rogers)

He hit the longest HR ever at Veterans Stadium in Philly.The spot where the ball landed was later marked with a yellow star with a black "S" inside a white circle.

Bonds is a scum-bag cheat. I am looking forward to the day when his head finally does explode, the roids have made it blow up like a ballon!

I tell the kids I coach and my son that he is not a person to look up to or try to be like on the baseball field or in life. He is a waste, too bad someone didn't plunk him and end his season before he hit another tainted dinger.
