    Barry Bonds has 66 home runs with 12 games left. Will he break Mark McGwire's record of 70 (1998)?

    I didn't think he would until he hit that 3 HR game a week or so ago, and now I'm starting to waiver. Bonds now just needs a HR in every 3rd game and I will be hard for him not to.
    I tell you what, that guy who paid all that cash for Big Mac's 70th HR ball must be ticked.

    I think Bonds will hit 70 this season. And Jerimiah, the guy who bought the 70th ball of McGuires is Todd McFarlane. He's the comic dude who created the Spawn franchise.

    Oh yeah, Bonds is going to do it. He's incredible.

    Go Barry! And win yourself a pennant in the process as well.

    I didn't think Bonds was gonna do it either until the 3 against Colorado and the 2 last night against San Diego. Some teams that aren't really in the hunt are pitching to him to see what he can do (the same thing happened to McGwire). 4 more homers with 12 games to go? I think he could do it by the end of the week.

    I seem to think he'll hit 74 this year.
    By 2010 we'll see helium in balls and the # of homerun will rise to more than 100.
    UH maybe not [​IMG]

    I think he will but I hope he doesn't.Im from St. Louis so I'm a little biased toward Big Mac.Records are made to be broken but this one needs to hold up a little longer!

    All signs point to yes.

    I think so. What surprises me is how low key this whole thing is. I mean, sure, people are talking about it, but the hype is nowhere close to when Mac was going for the record. I guess the difference is the record was much older than it is now!

    I think so. It would be great for the country to direct some attention back to sports and off of the news. I think Bonds will do it. I think he's got a great shot at it. And anyone holding the title other than Mark McGwire would be great. Well, at least anyone else that isn't a Cardinal [​IMG]
    But, I think it'll be a good thing to see him chasing down the record. It'll lighten things up a bit for this country and will be a good thing [​IMG]

    Yes, Bonds will break McGwire's record. Bonds has 67 homers in 450 at bats as of this writing, and ESPN said that at this point in the season in 1998, McGwire had 63 homers in 470 at bats. Bonds has a home run every 6.7 at bats compared to McGwire's 1 per 7.3. Bonds is on some kind of pace. I think he will end up at 72 home runs. To do so, he would have to hit five home runs in his final ten games. I think he can do that.
