    :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl:

    Perhaps the most interesting thing is that if he stays in the game, he will be hitting for the cycle.


    Edit: So much for that idea, Bruce just took him out in a double switch. Not surprising, as Bruce is that kind of classy.

    Eat it Washington. That's what you get.

    PS: Barry sipped some of Mr. Burns' nerve tonic when he got to 'frisco

    Do you guys think A-Rod will still be hitting 40 HRs a year when he gets to 38 years?

    He might. If not some other juiced up roid freak will get there.

    Baseball is a good way to get to stay entertained until football season.

    Screw Bonds and his giant melon.

    A reporter actually asked Barry the question: Do you think the record is tainted?"

    And of course Barry's response without blinking was: "NO... the record's not tainted"

    Barry's 100% correct. If people think he "cheated" then they're just woefully naive. Because if steroids in baseball were so pervasive during his "growth spurt", then it would be ridiculous to think that pitchers weren't also on the juice. This means Barry was just keeping up and was actually playing on a level field.

    Personally, I could give a shiit if dude juiced it up... I love seeing those HRs fly. Keep it baseball!! You'll never be America's pastime again!! :bolt:

    A-Rod is the only Non-Roids Hitter who has a serious chance of getting to Barriods record...If Griffy Jr hadn't got injured then he might be past Hank's record ages ago

    Congrats to Barry (I actually mean that)

    Anyways, now we can get back to actual baseball.
