why not... it's still a milestone even though he might have taken something to enhance his performance and size

i am def. in the minority on this issue--we all know he used steriods but soooo many others did as well. until there is valid evidence (positive drug test) that he used them we should honor his record. --Also Bud Selig is a complete d-bag. He knew steriod use was going on and he turned his back b/c it was selling tickets. Now that it goes public he stabs all those players in the back (sosa,McGwire,Giambi, Bonds)

Very well said.......:tt02::tt02::tt02: You're totally right nobody cared back in 98 when Big Mac/Sosa had their magical run at the single season home run record....Baseball was back and the fans were filling parks across the Nation.....So the commish,owners and everybody associated with MLB looked the other way....

Who knows what pitchers also used roids during this era.....

If you like Bonds or if you don't like Bonds...you can't deny the mans talent...Only player to hit 500 homeruns and steal 500 bases...Crap only player over 400 in boths of those stats......He would have done that without using the cream or the clear.....

Plus if all these fans that knock Bonds and other baseball players for using the juice....You really think all these NFL player are clean? If you do then you have your head in the sand...You can't test for HGH and I bet at least 60 percent of NFL players are using HGH.....

Ruth also didn't face Arican American ball players......He also used a 40oz bat which would be against the rules of MLB today.......Lets see during part of Ruth's career ground rule doubles counted as home runs....Now I'm not knocking Ruth or taking anything away what he did for baseball or sports in general...He is one of the greatest sports icons period in American history....Just pointing out how the game of baseball has changed since Ruth's era....

i hope he breaks the record i really do. steroids alone will not get you 700+ Home runs. steroids dont prevent you from getting injuried. doesnt help you hit the ball you still have to get the bat on the ball.

Hank Aaron holds the record, not Babe Ruth. I doubt he used any performance enhancing drugs. The thing that gets me is that some things can't be helped by exercising or wearing yellow contacts or seeing a sports psychologist or taking HGH. The greatest hitter ever? Ted Williams. He hit 500 and some-odd HR's, and he also hit for average. I think his lifetime was .350, and he was the last guy to hit over .400.

The bottom line is that Bonds record is tainted, and guys like Aaron and Williams records never will be. If you argue that BB's record isn't tainted, the fact that there even is an argument shows that many or most won't or can't acknowledge the record, so it's tainted by public perception if nothing else.

Alot of the stick Bonds catches is for projecting the persona of an a$$hole his entire career. If he was a nicer guy, believe me, he wouldn't be vilified nearly as much as he is now, roids or no roids.
