    Bonds broke McGwire's record tonight! He did it on the first pitch he saw after hitting no. 70. Chan Ho Park served up the historic pitch.

    Too bad that arrogant piece of shit broke the record. My consolation is that the Giants will likely be eliminated from playoff contention on the same night. I always loved watching Bonds bring up his stats as proof of his greatness, then watching him later pout when you bring up his pathetic playoff stats.

    Actually, #70 and #71 came on consecutive swings (one last night, one tonight), but it wasn't on the first pitch that Bond got from Chan Ho Park, it was the 2nd or 3rd. [​IMG]
    Congrats to setting the bar for home run record just a little higher for the next guy.

    Say what you will about Barry Bonds' demeanor and/or playoff history- he's the best player in baseball over the last 15 years- I'm overjoyed to see him do it. Mark McGwire isn't half the player that Bonds has been, he doesn't have half the future. This record is now in the hands of a truly great player.

    Good grief! Bonds just hit #72!
    But Shawn Green just popped one over at the same location of Bonds' homer and Dodgers are up 9-5.

    What's sort of sad is that Bonds may be sitting at home because his team is likely to miss the playoffs if they can't come back to beat the Dodgers tonight.

    Awesome stuff! Love him or hate him, Bonds is a great baseball player.
    I hope he'll hit 75 before the end of the year...

    I think Bonds has mellowed out a lot. He doesn't seem to have that attitude he carried a while ago. I'm just glad to see anyone take away McGuire's record. That's the guy I can't stand. [​IMG]

    Home runs have less currency these days, vis. the record books. Pitching is diluted, along with there being so many clubs and so many new, hitter-friendly ballparks.
    I say it's time to go back to the pre-1968 rules: Raise the pitching mound back to fifteen inches. Get rid of the designated-hitter rule (so that both leagues will be playing the same game). And do away with interleague, regular-season play.
    I maintained back in 1994 that the ball had been juiced up. Remember how, before the strike, so many offensive records were about to fall? I think the owners were play a psych game on the players, making conditions such that the players wouldn't want to strike--and to circumvent waning fan interest.
    Now, it seems as if the season home-run record is being broken almost every other year. It just doesn't mean what it used to mean.
    And that means Babe Ruth is still the best there ever was.
