Too bad he wont blossom in time before Barry Bonds retires because he would be something Bonds should be afraid of. This has been a great post so far.
I'm not doubting that anyone other than Dusty will cause Zambrano to not have a nice career. All that I'm saying is that it's a little early to include him in a discussion of the difference between the pitchers that Ruth and Bonds had to face.

They pitched the whole game. There were not situtaional relievers. There were relievers, but they were mostly 5th and 6th starters who would pitch long relief..

Where are those althelets from. Today we have players from Australia, S. Korea, Japan, Mexico, etc. The game is over 30 percent hispanic, and over 15 percent black.

Hate all you want on 755. Hank is alreadyone the most underrated living players so there's plenty of hating for you to spread around.
And mentioning Mantle in the same breath is a joke. Mantle hit 25 or more home runs 10 times. Aaron did it 18 times. Aaron played 5 more seasons than Mantle and still batted 7 points higher (305).
