it makes me sick to think what he would do in a lineup where they had to pitch to him more often.

Why they continue to pitch to him is a mystery to me............
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I don't know if he's the best player ever because I don't think you can make valid comparisons with players from different eras, but he is without a doubt the best player I have ever seen (I'm 22) and the best, most dominating player I've seen in any sport ever, with the possible exception of Wayne Gretzky. If he was pitched to as much as Pujols and A-Rod are, I have no doubt he'd hit at least 80 homers, and I bet he'd top 100. I know that sounds crazy, but just watch him and see how few good pitches he gets to hit compared to Pujols, A-Rod or any other player. He hits just as many HR as they do in 200 less at-bats, playing in a much worse lineup with no protection and in one of the 2 or 3 best pitchers parks in baseball. If he got 600 ABs he'd top 70 easily.

in a block buster the deal the yankees trade gary shefield, bernie williams. and mike mussina for barry bonds. I think it would take at least that or even mroe to get him in real life.

Dont forget Michael Jordan, Im sure you have seen him play. ;-D I do agree that Bonds is probably the best baseball player I have ever seen play, but I think it is difficult to place any baseball player in the category of the most dominant athlete. Not that baseball players arent amazing athletes, it is just that baseball is a sport that relies so much on your team, and there is only so much a player can do to dominate the game (as in MJ could take the last second shot and win the game). Pitchers on the other hand, I think someone like Clemens or Nolan Ryan are more dominant than Bonds is, but it is hard to say who is a better baseball player. Well, you get what I am saying.
