A second Home Run Race
I was reading a post in the Chipper Jones thread in CE about the coverage and all about the '98 HR chase, and it got me wondering, what would happen if we had another HR race int he same fashion, between two huge fan favorites and two rival teams.
What if it was Derrek Lee and Albert Pujols, or Ryan Howard and David Wright? Do you think the coverage would be bigger than the '98 one? Would it be the same or smaller? I personally don't think it would be bigger, Big Mac and Sosa are tow of the most prolific HR hitters in the game...really the only one that compares to the two today is A-Rod, but he's not exactly the most liked person in baseball...not as much as Sosa and McGwire were in '98.
"I don't like to sound egotistical, but every time I stepped up to the plate with a bat in my hands, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the pitcher."
"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!
