Isn't He Supposed To Be Slowing Down By This Point?

Sunday, April 22, 2007

Barry Bonds hit career homerun number 740 in the fourth inning of this afternoon's game against the Diamondbacks. That's three homers in the last four games and six on the season, if you're scoring at home.

Pretty sure I'm not gonna know how to feel about this one until number 756 goes flying out of the park. Regardless of how he got there, it would be kind of cool to see Bonds "unify the belts" - no player has held both the single-season and all-time homerun records since Roger Maris hit his 61st in 1961.

On the other hand...sometimes life isn't all about the destination, but the journey as well.

I'm pretty sure Roger Maris never held the all-time homerun record, seeing as how Ruth had 714.

I think it means that Ruth had both until Maris took one away.

anonymous 12:57 is right...guess I worded it a bit awkwardly.
