Is Bonds pretty much a lock to break Aaron's record?

Postby Zito is God » Tue Sep 21, 2004 11:11 pm

I was watching the Cubs game and heard that the Ginats have picked up Bonds' option for both 2005 and 2006. Now I figuire that he will need about 44 at the end of this year to beat Aaron, thats 22 a year. I mean, its Barry Bonds, unless he has some freak injury he will DEFINETLY hit 22 HRs a season.

Is he a lock now? :-?

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

If he plays a he's a lock. Since he terminated his deal with the MLBPA so he wouldn't be exploited come the record-breaking season, I figure he's sticking around for it. It's only a matter of time. 800 is actually withing reach. He'd need about 30 HR per season through 2007 in order to do it. Truely amazing.

Yep, Bonds will do it for sure. The question is when.

As much as I hate him, both as a person and a ball player, he's a lock.

He's done steroids and broken ties with his own union just for personal gain... why would he walk away from something that will being him more fame and money?

Broke ties with the union for personal gain? If leaving the union is so beneficial, then why does everybody else stay in the union? He didn't want to be exploited by MLB, and now he won't be.

And why do you hate him as a person and player? I can see that as a person you dislike his honesty, but what's wrong with the way he plays?

I hope Bonds is not doing steroids and they find conclusive proof that this is the case--although I think this is unlikely. But for the sake of the game, I don't want him breaking the record and then all the evidence come out...
I'm back. Sorta.

I agree. ;-D Eight-hundred could almost a lock if they let him wear all the armor at the plate like he does now :-D His skill hasn't shown any signs of deteriorating IMO and he could go even longer if he'd go to the AL. As an aside though I do have to give him credit for not doing it though[changing leagues]. Guess it's because I don't see AL ball as real baseball. :p :-D

How about being in a pennant race and the act that he pulled against Colorado (I think)?? He hits into a DP that could have been avoided had he done anything other than walk out of the box. :-/
