      Thanks for the info Hank. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who don't fully realize how good some of these players were that A-Rod is now passing. Al Kaline - an all time great, and the fact that A-Rod is passing Kaline at such a young age just goes to show two things: 1) How hard it is to hit 400 homeruns (if an all-around great like Kaline just missed it over his entire career; and 2) Just how amazing A-Rod is for him to already be at a place it took Al Kaline an entire career to get to.

      Also, GiambiJuice, do you think you could tone down the sarcasm a little? I for one didn't stop think about the players A-Rod passed (though I did know that Murphy and Kaline were sitting on 398 and 399, respectively). Thanks!

        This merely illustrates the probelm with comparing players from different eras.

            I think it's kind of funny with Bonds chasing Aaron because when it's all said and done, A-Rod will be at the top of that list.

              The more names I see above Canseco's, the happier I become.
