My favorite player is back......

barry bonds made his return to baseball last night. he barely missed a homerun when a fan reached out from the stands. GOOD. i cant stand that steroid ridden jackoff. hes a horrible person and if it wasnt for his ability to hit a baseball he wouldnt be able to keep a job anywhere else. who would put up with this surly jackass but baseball owners? please god, never let him beat hank aaron. he couldnt carry hank aarons jock. sure he hit alot of homeruns but most came after he started to take the performance enhancing drugs and they came during the most diluted era of baseball. too many teams means that people that have no right being in the majors are pitching. they allow him to wear body armor and charge the mound if a pitcher dares to throw inside. i would have loved to see him hit against bob gibson in his prime (you know, before they lowered the mound to aid the batters). bob gibson would have pitched him inside and then when he glared at bob he would have put the next pitch in his ear then when barry charged the mound bob would have given him a good old fashioned beat down. my only hope is that his knee has swollen to the size of a basketball this morning. i hope it needs gallons drained from it.

with that in mind the baseball playoff races couldnt be better. so many teams still have a shot at making the playoffs. sure baseball is screwed up badly but this is prime time for the game right now. i hope everyone enjoys it now.

thats it for tuesday. now get to work.

I agree. Hank Aaron has nothing but class. It's amazing that the Atlanta Braves have never had a player hit 50 or more home runs in a season. Andruw Jones broke Aarons club record of 47. Maybe, the Atlanta batters in the last 20 years have not been juiced at all? But how about the pitchers? I'm sure there are some pitchers that have juiced up as well. I agree with the dilution factor of baseball, but when there were only 12 teams or so, many batters saw the same pitchers over and over again. Is that an advantage? And, relief pitching was not really a major part of the game. It's just a shame that Ken Griffey, Jr. couldn't stay healthy and keep pace to Aarons record.

I don't personally like the lowered mound but can you picture Bonds charging some country redneck like Roger Clemens or Nolan Ryan back in the day? Nolan would have put a beat down on Barry worse than he did on Robin Ventura.

blade, would you rather see the pirates 10th pitcher or roger clemens over and over? do you think you would have te advantage with clemens because of that?

Amen
You do know your baseball

I'm too happy about the return of football to watch baseball.

I would rather see Clemens, of course. I was trying to compare the 2 eras. Sometimes that is not a cut and dry thing. It's like recently the debate was , Is Jerry Rice the best all-time NFL player? Or should you only consider a q-back for that title? Then, its Joe Montana..but how about Marino. But, Joe won championships. Then, its Otto Gram? Sports debates are great, aren't they?

shoes said...

my fault blade, i didnt mean to ask if you wanted to SEE clemens but would you as a batter rather face clemens or the tenth pitcher for the pirates

Blade90 said...

Would it be Clemens on 2-3 days of rest and pitch complete games almost all the time, like say the 1920's - 1930's? At age 41. Or the 10th pirates pitcher on 4 days rest at age 24. The gap of comparsion has gotten narrower?

I agree with you Shoes about the dilution of pitching talent and the tarnished records of Barry, but I also agree with Blade that comparisons of different eras in baseball or any sport is difficult if not useless because of the many variables. As for willy jo his picture leads me to believe he could win a dog farting contest hands down or is that cheeks down!
