I do not support his alleged steroid use, but it's still a great milestone. No matter how doped a player is, hitting a home run off a Major League pitcher is no easy feat! Several years ago USA Today had a series on the 10 most difficult things to do in the sports field, and hitting a pitch from a Major League pitcher took the top spot!

It's times like these when I'm glad I'm a Phillies fan--the most loserly team in all of professional sports. Hooray for 10k!

See, we don't have to get wrapped up in when "real" or "good" baseball ended--it never really even [b]began[/i] for us! We don't get wrapped up in positive records (like most career home runs...or even, say, drug test results  wink  ) when we can bet on how many call ups from the farm teams we'll need because of however many injuries we sustain.

Yes, the life of the Phillies fan is a bleak one, but hey! at least we won't have to worry about any nasty asterisks floating around us any time soon, right? Put that one in the Win column--nobody'll notice...

(my 'rhetorical question' below is not directed at you, but at anyone who thinks this record is worth anything)

So if I'm a golfer, and they suddenly came up with a pill that would allow me to nail more hole-in-ones than the average person could, should I end up in 'the record books' for having hit sunk the most hole-in-ones??

The thing about this record is that it's actually making Hank Aaron's effort look like a sham (even though it's truly a remarkable accomplishment on his behalf), and the fact that in every major history book, there will be an asterisk beside Bonds' name indicating the alleged use of steroids.

The thing is -- it's truly sad.. when you have children who look up to this man as a positive influence, when really all he MAY have proven is that the more certain chemicals you take, the more fake your accomplishment can be.

Boy, oh boy! Now THAT'S something to be proud of. A baseball player stupid enough to allow himself to become the subject of doubt. That's too bad. And to think. The poor bastard could have probably done it just by drinking two cups of coffee every morning.

What a stupid idiot Mr Bonds is. As long as there's doubt, he doesn't deserve a damned thing. Not even an asterisk.

You know what? Bonds is too smart no one will ever know if he took anything. We can say this and that, but we will never get solid proof of it.

Now I'm sure all of the steroid experts (total sarcasm) will come after me, but I say he is the man. If he is proven guilty IN COURT I will lose tremendous respect for him; but until that point...Go Barry!

""No matter what anybody thinks of the controversy surrounding this event, Mr. Bonds' achievement is noteworthy and remarkable," Selig said in a statement."

I think Selig said it perfectly.
