          This might the one player where no one stat has a chance against 755.

            I think... more tools than a carpenter/consistent but not dominating

            after that, 755

              I always remember that Don Drysdale referred to him as "Bad Hank".

                The man is defined by the number of career home runs he hit, hands down.
                46 wins to match last year's total

                    I voted 755

                    Just a couple of things here....

                    Also, when I think of Babe Ruth I think of 714 HRs (or 60). So it's not like there aren't more important or impressive things the man has done.

                    But when I think of Hank Aaron, I think of opening day 1974. My dad had tickets to see the Braves play in Cincinnati the day of Hank's 714th home run off Jack Billingham. I would have been at the game too, but his brother had just dropped in from out of state and got the other ticket.

                      I voted 755 as well, but I think something has to be mentioned about how much he dislikes Barry Bonds.

                      "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

                        I think you have to go with 755 which is almost ashame, because from Day one his career goal was 3000 hits. I only say it is ashame because Henry aaron was so much more than a HR hitter and I think he would like to be remember for many other things, but he will always be recognized for his career HR total.
                        I signed with the Milwaukee Braves for three-thousand dollars. That bothered my dad at the time because he didn't have that kind of dough. But he eventually scraped it up.~Bob Uecker
