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

Besides, isn't Watkins still trying to buy Anaheim? And they have a good young te--wait, they said that about Minnesota last year. Ah well. There won't be contraction, if you ask me. Of course, I'd fire Selig if I had the chance.
