On Saturday night, Barry Bonds on a 2-1 count, hit an outside pitch 386 feet off the upper deck and into the stands for career home run number 755. He moved into a tie with Hank Aaron for the most home runs ever hit by a single player. What an amazing career this man has had. In my mind he is a first ballot hall of famer, steroid era and all. When looking at Bonds’ career, he holds so many MLB records it’s hard not to imagine him being inducted into Cooperstown. In my opinion, he’s the greatest baseball player to ever put on a uniform…period!
Here’s a list of some of the all-time records Bonds holds:
To me, the last one is the most telling of all…
Here’s a list of some of the single season records Bonds holds:
As you can see, Bonds has had an amazing career. It seems like every time I watch a Giants game I hear about some other record he’s obtained. Obviously, I didn’t list them all, but just some of the more important ones. He is for sure, the greatest player ever.
clearly you’re not an educated baseball man – going by numbers and records only one will come close to calculating the greatest player but numbers are not the end all be all. you’re also completely discounting pitchers. are they not ‘players’ of the game. Babe Ruth had so much more of an impact in the game than Bonds. Bonds has never hit more home runs than entire teams and Ruth did it regularly. Ruth was also a fantiastic PITCHER! He was dominant at every part of the game he attempted. and HELLO – if you know anything about growth hormones and steroids and what a person looks like when he or she has taken them then you would know that Bonds has. you’re a complete moron and I can’t think that you even believe what you are claiming but are instead trying to get a rise out of people and more traffic to your site. which in the case of myself it worked so way to go.
Numbers don’t lie. I have followed baseball since I was 7 years old (Watching Will Clark make pitchers look silly) and I must say that I have never seen a player do the things that Barry Lamar Bonds has done. Like him or not folks – NUMBERS DON’T LIE!!
PS- While i was writing this comment, he just put 435 feet between himself and the ball… 756!
I agree that Bonds is the greatest to put on a uniform. Babe
Ruth did not compete against black players.
As for steroids don’t blame bonds blame th players union for blocking action. If the players really cared they would have walked Bonds to keep him from getting the record. He is already theleader in walks and intentional walks
Don’t forget his failed test for methamphetamine too. T
hat just makes him even more better doesn’t it?
[...] Barry Bonds asked the federal judge in charge of his perjury case to dismiss it today, arguing the indictment is “scattershot” and noted for its “striking inartfulness.” This gives us an inside look at how his lawyers are beginning to outline and defend their client. The attorneys said that the questions asked by prosecutors during Bonds’ December 2003 grand jury appearance were vague, ambiguous and confusing. The lawyers asked that the case be thrown out on the grounds that he couldn’t have been lying when the questions asked of him did not allow a concise response. [...]
