Nah, dark brown actually... Although I did have some douchy years in high school when I bleached my hair so I suppose I was blonde for a period back in the day. I still don't really get the joke, honestly. I don't understand why even someone stupid, err, blonde, would think an M&M should be peeled.

I'm curious why we're so quick to dismiss a record on account of "luck". Sure, he needed a lot of it to get the streak, but it took skill as well. Not to mention, it's pretty darn impressive his luck and skill held out that long. Just my .02 on the matter.

rollins couldve stolen 9 bases for all i care. phils are obv a much better team. so what, thats not the point. the point is that victorino is a vagtastic little girl. dont tell me he wasnt about to charge the mound. if you even take a quick look at the replay its totally obvious that he was ready to roll out until he saw ramirez come towards him. then he wussed and pretended to hide behind the umpire.... but lets be real - when has and umpire EVER stopped anyone from charging the mound, or doing whatever the hell they want to do? ya, never.
Pablos left hook to victorinos face was just icing on the cake
Are you talking about the "left hook" at around the :51 part of this video? If so how do you know that connected with his face and if anything the puch was a pansy shot if I've ever seen one. Kind of threw his hand in there and popped away. Didn't seem too vicious
Well, through the first half of the season, he was on pace for one of the best offensive seasons of all time, and had been near that pace for about 10 consecutive months. But I guess it's easy to laugh when you're a Royals fan

The key difference being making an argument for "one of" the best offensive seasons vs what some were making as it being "the best" offensive season of all time. It is like saying Bob Meusel was one of the best HR hitters of his time. Sure he was near the top of the list, but when you saw how much better the top guy was it put it in perspective.
And if you want to go down the 10 consecutive month route just use the last few months of 2003 and run into 2004 for Bonds. When you end 4 of 10 months slugging over 1.000 you might as well just start looking at who is in contention for the second best season ever.
When you say "some people," Tavish, who are you referring to? Speaking for myself, I know that I never made the argument that Bautista was putting up "the best" offensive season of all time and I don't remember anybody who did (other than perhaps those who were amazed by his HR pace early in the season and extrapolated his stats for a full season of play). As good as he was doing through the first 2-3 months, though, Bautista was always a step behind the greatest hitter of all time, Barry Bonds, in every category. And I'm always the first person to acknowledge and respect Bonds' ridiculous dominance.
