    Hank Aaron did it without drugs. He's my hero.

    Hank Aaron is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He worked really hard to get where he was and took care of all the guys that helped him get there.

    Barry is the complete opposite of everything Hank was. F him.

    Living here in the Bay this summer will be painful. Really.

    I WILL NOT WATCH THAT CRAP ON MY TV.

    My most fervent wish is that the closer that jack@ss gets to the record,
    the higher the hush money demanded by his "I stand by my principles"
    'roid dealer gets.

    And then the whole thing goes front page when he hits #754.

    Dude is the antithesis of what a sports team player and hero is today.

    What still baffles me is the thing about delusional Giants fan.

    When I ask them "If he were a Dodger would all this be OK?"

    And they say "Not no but hell no, Then he'd be a cheat"

    Nice double standard. :dis:

    PS Eff Selig and all the rest of the owners too. You idiots are complicit in this as well. :angryfire

    Then why in the world did he feel the need to cheat AND THEN try to hide it????

    Dude's ego and utter arrogance has no known limit.

    Speaking of limit, I expect BB's lapdog NlmtMD to weigh in here shortly. :hihi:

    Without steroids, he was a barely above average player. His clubhouse attitude would not be tolerated with warning track power. The HR record without an asterisk would be a travesty.

    Two in-depth books were written, both claiming that he started juicing after the 1998 season. That season, according to reports, he had another awesome year but everyone paid attention to the McGwire-Sosa home run chase.

    Take a look at this link and you'll see that:

    1990-1998 - the guy was incredible. Probably the best player in baseball (along with Frank Thomas, Ken Griffey).

    1999-2004 - some sort of superhuman. He was playing a different game offensively.
