    Honus Wagner Rules: What "record" does Ruth have?
    "milestone" is the word that i used.

    There was major hoopla when Bonds passed Mays... But what record to Bonds pass?

    Great catch csh19792001. However, Bonds has never played in the American League.

    Well, he came back for 14 games last season with his busted up knee's and hit 5 home runs in 14 games. Everybody is aware of his age, but so far, he's prove to put consistent numbers each and every year until last season where injuries de-railed him. If his knee's hold up and that's a big if for me, I don't see why it's not possible for him to hit 30 plus home runs next season.

    He did average 40 plus home runs the last five seasons until 2005, count his 73 home run season. So, until he goes out there or can't go out there due to injury, I really can't say he doesn't have a legit chance of hitting that many home runs when he's playing. Bonds is a special type of player, even if he's using steriods or not and I'm not going to speculate on the matter of whether or not he's on steriods. Until I see proof he's not special, I have to give the man credit for the type of player he is, even if I'm not a huge fan of him or his attitude.
    Fourteen games doesn't really tell us anything really. Plus his BA was way down. Physically Bonds is past his peak, Every day he ages his body is getting weaker and weaker. That's just the process of aging.

    It has happened to the best players of all-time before. For instance as a 39 year old Hank Aaron had a huge year.

    1973: .301/.402/.643, 40 HRs, 96 RBI, 81 runs (only 392 ABs!)

    This was huge year for Aaron. He fell off to 20 HRs, 12 HRs, and 10 HRs the next three seasons.

    There is no precedence or any 42 year old hitting 35-40 HRs...

    I'm surprised that no one has brought up Bonds age. Bonds will be 42 years old in July. No 42-year old has ever come close to hit 35-40 HRs in a season. So why should we expect Bonds to just easily hit 35-40 HRs?

    going on the premise of "one major milestone per year" theory, bonds is set to break ruth's record this season, and aaron's record next season.
    What "record" does Ruth have? There was major hoopla when Bonds passed Mays. All these articles of Bonds passing Mays' record. But what record to Bonds pass? Mays does not have the all-time HR record. Mays does not have the all-time NL record. By passing Mays Bonds did NOT break the all-time Giants franchise HR record. When Bonds passed Mays he did not break the S.F Giants HR record. It's the same with Ruth. What HR "record" does Ruth have other than the most HRs by a lefty?

    started a poll Will Barry catch Hank this year?

    Will Barry catch Hank this year?

    47
    Yes
    14.89%
    7
    No
    85.11%
    40

    The poll is expired.

    Barry Bonds will enter the season with 708 career homeruns so he needs 48 homeruns to pass Hank for the all-time lead. However, Barry is nearly 48 himself.
