hey joe, well said!

Barry's f*c(3d...

I heard a guy on Serius radio saying today that he should have just retired @ 754, and no one would have gone after him... :twisted:

Maybe...

I think it is unfair to continually go after Bonds and hear nothing about any of the others.

I don't know how you can believe any of the stats that are from today's era. It is all worthless stats. Small parks, weak pitching, and enough drugs means exagerated stats. Letting them take little blue pills (stimulants?) to "keep up their energy" is another thing that the clean hitters from yesterday never had.

I say don't believe anyone's stats. I love AROD and think he gets too negative of a rap, ( no one player can win a world series ), but he is much bigger than when he started his career, too. No one has said anything about him being on roids or HGH or anything. Come on. Let's point the finger at everyone not just the person everyone loves to hate.

HA :roll: do sum homework, know u your history. for a long time alot of the old players took "greenies" (more like speed)which were a "stimulant"also . tobacco is a stimulant for fuk's sake. barry got singled out for what hundreds did. are they coming after paul byrd for getting HGH shipments from a fukin dentist ?, that's right a dentist prescribed growth hormone. long story short there are so many more that used roids that we will never know of for sure. just wait til the mitchell investigation report comes out and names all the players they found out about. its bad for baseball. good thing we have so many great prospects to rebirth the face of baseball.

babe ruth would laugh at how small these ballparks were. he would think they were little league fields.

also, babe ruth would dominate baseball today. would non-white pitchers reduce babe ruth to a mere mortal today. i don't think so. and give babe ruth some of that juice and the sky is the limit.

Babe Ruth played in an era when you didn't have to be a great athlete to be a great player. Today’s top players are some of the best athletes out there. Yes there are some fat dudes in today’s game that also have some abilities, but to be on that next level you have to be a finely tuned machine.

You are comparing Apples to Oranges; all sports are different than there were even 20 years ago, for the better and for the worse, so you cannot compare record, statistics, and players.

the fence in right field @ yankee stadium and the polo groungs are ridicously short for a dead pull lefty. ruth was a legend and did it all on hot dogs and beer:the true american way. but would not have gotten as many numbers if he was facing the best possible. think about baseball without all the latino, black, asian and all other non-white players and what have you got? :shock:=weak ass shit. in our time the world series really is the world series.

I wouldve loved to see Griffey break this record. Hes the man. <


I don't know about Petite man. That guys pretty straight edge. And yes I definitely would agree with Griffey. He is the man, and it's ashame his health has never been the same since he left the Mariners. The guys as great of a guy as you can get.

Your crazy. Ruth threw 93 mph pitching, um thats the same weight as the balls they used today. Feller 100 mph gibson 92, oh and you had guys like cobb who use to sit in front of the dugout filing his cleats so the other team knew he would try to kill them if he had to. Dont ever down play great players, oh by the way Ruth had more stolen bases than barry, he would have till he was 41 he would have hit 1000. Didn't have to be a great athlete may arse. Ruth could hit a ball period. I hat when people try to say you can't compare. It has the same rule, expect you didn't get kicked out for throwing a pitch at someones head, and guys like teddy ball game would give up 4 years of their career to become a fighter pilot in the Marines. Spit balls were pretty much legal the bats weren't as good.
