I don't have any kids, but how do you present that to your son when he asks why his favorite player isn't allowed to play anymore. What a shame. Unfortunately I won't be able to enjoy Sportcenter for the rest of the winter and then some because this is going to be all they talk about. What do you all think will happen to the home run record?
NO!......Welp!?

Nothing, because A-Rod will break it. If they cant connect him to any steroids or HGH we are all about to see alot more of him. He will become the poster boy for baseball, which is why I think he is resigning with the Yankees. At all costs, with the exception of HGH.

Baseball made 6 billion dollars last year, A-Rod signs ( in pricipal ) with the Yankees, Bonds gets busted, Bonds trainer walks out of prison. All in one day for baseball.

A-Rod didnt get the proposed 350 million dollar bid, but he could win in other locations for the same amount NY is offering. It was either resign with the Yankees or go to Chicago to save his public image. He will become a hero ( to those he isnt already ) by staying with New York. He would have become a legend if he went to Chicago and won a title for the Cubbies. And I hate the Cubs.

I was thinking the same thing. :D and I hope that ARod does break the record, and he is on pace to do so. Griffey would have broke it had he remained healthy. I think it is an overated record anyways. I'd much rather have a guy with a 300+ batting average and 20 plus stolen bases anyways. Glavine's 300 wins this year is a much greater milestone in todays pitching era IMO, and got very little recognition. Then again there aren't many pitchers out there getting ridiculed for using drugs. Then again remember Doc Gooden :D
NO!......Welp!?

A-Rod hasn't won a title for anybody yet. Everything he's touched has turned to shit.

Well, pitchers havent been pointed out yet.

From what Ive read and heard on the radio the Mitchell report is supposed to name up to 300 players involved with HGH, steroids and amphetemines.

I dont disagree with what your saying about records, but I also dont agree with all of it. Hitters for the last decade have been facing watered down pitching. Pitching is a skill, much more difficult to master than batting, and there just arent enough of them around to make competitive staffs for ALL the MLB teams. In fact, I think its pretty weak. I also think there is going to be several pitchers ( Clemons , Petite, Prior ) that are going to be named on that list. I do think achiveing 300 wins now is impressive, but only because pitchers are such prima donnas nowadays.

Heres the thing I struggle with. In the 50s, 60s, and even 70s it was common to enter a clubhouse and see a bowl full of pills. Uppers, Downers, steroids, whatever. Ive read several books from former players that openly talk about it. Why is it none of those records or players are called into question? They are performance enhancing drugs like HGH.

I think the game back there wasnt worth as much, nor was one persons charector when speaking of the whole team. In this day and age there is too much money involved and star power is what is making the most. Pete Rose is the only person in 20+ years of my baseball experiance to ever catch the shitstorm, and thats because he gambled on his team. Bonds will walk away fine, his record will stand, and god willing A-Rod will be clean and beat it.

If he plays long enough I wouldn't rule out Albert Pujols from breaking some records.
