Two get your brilliant mind going again I'm gonna give you another *slap* :-D I miss the Big Mac too, it was fun to watch his homers fly and fly and fly and never come down. And also Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa had more competition....

Bonds wasn't really in the mix when McGuire was at his prime. At least I don't remember it being that way. All the pub went to McGuire vs. Sosa...That was a fun summer!

Yeah, that'd be a hoot. Does Bonds walk more today than McGuire did in his HR prime?

Yep, Bonds does walk more now than MacGuire used to.

That 9-8-98 game was fun to watch. Trachsel was pitching, wasn't he? I remember thinking about how pissed off I'd be if I had given up a home run to a guy only to have my teammates congratulate him. I guess it was unusual circumstances, but still ... (I think Trachsel said something similar at the time).

I was watching the game at a friend's house in Oakland. When Big Mac hit that home run, you could hear people cheering up and down the street. That was amazing, and pretty rare for MLB. The last time I experienced anything like it was when I was 10 years old and watched one of the Tigers WS games projected onto a screen in Hart Plaza in Downtown Detroit. Good times.

McGwire breaking the Babe's record that year was the ONLY time I have turned on the tube specifically looking for news on him, hoping his game is on the tube. Hell, my wife was even interested. LOL

My favorite McGwire moment was the All-Star Game in Fenway, hitting, what, 13 home runs that one round. Each one seemed to go further then the rest. He was an amazing, amazing man.

I wish he was still playing.

Speaking of HRs, remember that one he hit off of RJ. Talk about a bomb, I think I saw a mushroom cloud from where that bomb landed in the Middle East somewhere.
