lol good point. but thats what ive been saying overall as of today Ruth is the slightly better hitter but if you were to take Bonds last four years, they're arguably best four (consecutive) years anyone's ever had.
2001, 2002, and 2004 are probably the 4 best season taht anyone has ever had. The fact that the same player accomplished that, within a span of 4 seasons, is amazing. But if he had done that over his whole career he'd be better than Babe, but he didn't - he did it over 4 years.
