this is really the first time it actually dawned on me how much steroids ruined the fun of the game. i mean, bonds was the GOAT giant and the GOAT period and i'll always be a fan by default, but man...600 homers. that's such a huge ****ing milestone. i remember when mcgwire was chasing maris that no matter what i was doing i would make it a point to be at a tv whenever he came to bat, same with bonds when he was chasing mcgwire and chasing aaron, but i guess that's cuz i'm a homer. i didn't even realize thome was this close to 600, and didn't even know he got 600 til i got a text from a friend, i mean ffs just look at the front page of yahoo sports



apolo ohno, a guy who hasn't been relevant in YEARS, becoming a marathoner is a bigger story than the 8th 600 homer guy in history. ffs we were forcefed the 3000 hit chase by jeter and 3000 hits really isn't **** compared to 600 homers but now it's just a footnote that can't even guarantee entry into the HOF. sad really

600 HR is no longer meaningful. Bonds' run was particularly LOL as everyone had to walk on eggshells while he pissed all over Hank Aaron's legacy.

A milestone only 8 men have reached -- and only one active, all-time great player has a shot at making -- is no longer meaningful. Well, OK then.

Adam Dunn needs like 8-10 more seasons w/ an average of about 30 hr a season. He might get close. Derek Jeter needs 4 more seasons at only 85 or so hr a season.

1. Post #62 itt hours after milestone reached.
2. Thread unlikely to reach 100 posts
3. ???????
4. Relevancy?

well the phillies are paying him like 25 million a year until he's 37 so he'll probably get the chance to keep hitting hrs long after he should've retired
