LOL. You couldn't have summed up my feelings any better. :-)

Best hitter ever.


Are you joking when you say that steroid riddled cheater is the best hitter ever. Bonds will never hit .400, so he cant be the best hitter ever. If you havent hit .400 you dont qualify for best hitter ever. Sorry mr bonds, ted williams will always be better than you, frozen or not. If you listen carefully, you can actually hear the sound of bonds using a hyperdermic needle. :-D

that was lame and uncalled for. do you hate people jumping to conclusions w/ out facts when it is about you? i would think you would, so try and hold it in till the facts come out. if he did, then he did and you can whine all you want about it. but if not i agree w/ his statement, except i would add one word.....best "power" hitter ever.

I would actually leave the best power hitter ever title to either Hank Aaron or the Babe. Ruth was hitting 50+HR in an era when others couldn't even hit 5-10HR. The first time the Babe hit 50+HR, he hit 54 in 1920 to lead the league. In 2nd place was George Sisler who hit a whopping 19HR! ERAs under 3.00 were the norm in his day and not the rare feat like it is today. He just flat out dominated. And in Hank Aaron's case, the man hit between 20 and 50HR for 20 straight seasons!!!! Can someone say consistent? Bonds is definitely up there as one of the best, but not THE best.

well while it is obviously an opinion i would say hank aaron is not in the top 2, i will leave that for bonds and ruth. aaron to me was not nearly as big as a power hitter, he accomplished what he did because.....he was consistent....played every year....and longevity. i believe he played untill he was 45 or something. also it's so hard to compare bonds and ruth, both were/are a class above everyone else. you could easily make cases for each. lets just say ruth was the best power hitter back in the day and bonds is the best power hitter since.

While I'm not a fan of Jimy, go back and look at the 1999 team he took to the ALCS. That's some good managing.
I'm back. Sorta.
