    Can Arod pass maris??

    It would obviously cool if Arod became the record holder for home runs in a season by someone who is not known to have broken laws or rules in baseball to attempt to improve their performance.. to some this means something, to others it obviously doesn't. To me Babe Ruth si waaaaaaaayyyyyy better, but that is me, as a side note ofr 162 games what does ruth's sixty project to i know that maris also has an asterisk, could arod reach 65 and be the legitimet champ. i know it is all hypothetical. In my hypothetical world steroids help some but not much and also help pitchers a lot, so bonds being a great hitter with no existence of of roids would still hit 65.. sosa not sixty tho i doubt corking a bat gives him more than one extra one.. but i believe in my imaginary world that outside the dead ball and with the extra teams and because he proved his talent was sooooo much better than everyone else he played against, forget mound heights and no black players .... yada yada .. i think if he played in an era when other people hit forty and fifty in a year rather than only 5 or ten then his competitiveness and outright superior ability would lead him to a year with eighty or so...
    Anyways, i know i don't like to puncuate correctly, sorry about that. But I just think it is fun to speculate right now with Arod, who I am not a real big fan of, on a tear and talk with everyone about if they believe he will keep this up and become your home run champ.. or if you like bonds or babe or maris or sosa or hamerin hank

    Re: Can Arod pass maris??

    I would like to start about seventy five more arod threads if possible, maybe one about him not being a true yankee, or if he will opt out or where he will go if he were to opt out, of just if you like him or hate him. Anyways, I think that the mambino is the best home run hitter, I think that maris technically owns the record withan obvious asterisk and that those other three ahead of him are disqualified from owning the record because even though they may have been able to do it the right way .. they did things that in my opinion are against the rules and spirit of the idea of baseball records. I also think that arod will not break the record, and i think that he may also cheat, though i have nothing to back that up, and i would appreciate it if noone tells me not to say that, because this is a free speech country and i will say it ias much as i want. I think that pujols will get the record in the next six years.

    I would rather A-Rod have the record October than go nuts in September.

    If you do start all those threads, can you please break your posts into sentences? It would make them much easier to read that way.

    You yourself said that you have nothing to back up that A-Rod "cheats", yet you ask people not to tell you to stop saying that?

    Just because it's internet doesn't mean that you can talk all you want and have nothing to back it up. What a joke.

    Edit: BTW .

    Can he? Yes. There are games left to play.

    Will he probably? No.

    Would I like it if he did? Yes.

    10% chance A-Rod can be the real single season HR leader after this season.
    “I mean, people knew that Brown was out there, and that Randy was ornery all the time. And Pavano is whoever he is. But if you’re their manager, you can’t go out and write about them like that.

    He would probably freeze for week or two if he hit 61...

    i dont think arod will hit 74 HR's, any other total prior to that is irrelevant when it comes to records
