Bonds Passes the Babe

Barry Bonds has hit his 715th career homerun to pass Babe Ruth on the all-time HR list. He did it in the 4th inning of a game against the Colorado Rockies, on a 3-2 pitch from Byung-Hyun Kim, to deep centerfield at AT&T Park. It was a 2-run Homerun with nobody out to make the score 6-2 Colorado.

No matter where you stand on the steroids issue, this is an historic event.

Personally, I think Barry Bonds is a terrific player – one of the best ever – and I applaud his 715th Homerun and an amazing career. If he did steroids, it was obviously wrong for him to do them, but you have to admit, he is one of the top players of all time.

Please comment on your thoughts on Bonds' career and where you stand on the steroids issue.

  1. Barry Bonds is a great hitter — there is no debating that. Steroids cannot help you hit big league pitching. But there is also no doubt in my mind that he used some form of steroid(s) later on in his career, which helped him hit more for power than average. Rarely do you find a player who can hit for average and 40+ homers, and I think some form of steroid or HGH is a part of that.
