Aaron wouldn't change record

Postby mak1277 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 1:45 pm

This thread will undoubtedly degenerate quickly, but I think the premise bears posting.

Hank Aaron thinks Bonds should keep the HR record.

I don't even feel like I need to add commentary....this speaks for itself in my mind.

It's impossible to tell whether those are his true feelings or whether this is a PR move.

Didn't we already know this? He showed up on the videoboard the night of Bonds' record, saying this:

"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 historical 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."

Yea well said by Aaron, if we change the record then does all those fans get their money back that paid to see history made? Do the pitchers get lower era's since those homers dont count? Does the giants get docked those runs and change the win/losses? Does that change the playoffs those years? Does that change the MVP? The W.S.? No it just can't be undone, whats done is done.
