At least Peavy hit him in his first at bat

Just kidding - what an interesting feat. As a kid, I would have been amazed at seeing 700 HR in my lifetime. Now, I'm a bit underwhelmed.

Still, I called the HR, and realized it was history as I watched it.

Maybe in 20 years I'll look back and remember this - but right now I still remember where I was when McGuire broke the record. I'm sure I will remember this as well, but it's not a flashbulb memory for me.

We'll see how 715 and 757 go I guess.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

I'm kind of the same way. I think it hasn't really sunk in yet. I mean, it's hard to wrap your head around somebody hitting 700 home runs. I mean, the most homers anybody has ever hit in a season is 73. That's amazing enough. Now consider that to match Bonds, somebody would have to do that basically 10 years in a row. Most major league players don't play 10 years, period.

You know, I knew that. It was a typo.

Give the history approach 20 years before the books are written about those BALCO test results

And the whole thing was really an unhappy accident: - The home plate umpire's copy of the IL rulebook was missing the rule on the league's curfew, and the game should have been suspended at the end of the first inning to finish after 1 am.
