    if he gets to 62 he has the record in my, and quite a few other people's, opinion.

    Steroid abuse aside, 62 would be a YANKEE Record. That means a lot to a lot of people, particularly those on this board.

    Re: Can Arod pass maris??

    It depends on how long this hot stretch lasts. He could hit 65 or 55, depending. He's not going to hit 7 HRs every five games the rest of the way. 74 is impossible. 62 would be amazing, but very difficult. I think he gets stuck trying to get from 57 to 58, because it would be a career high, kind of the way he got stuck between 499 and 500.

    Going by his history of hot month cold month I will say he ends up with 60 HR's but unfortunately that means he'll have his usual October I hope I'm wrong!

    Not in the A.L.

    60 HR's has only been achieved twice in A.L. history.

    Maris, Ruth...maybe ARod by seasons end.


    Very few disputes can't be settled with the proper use of a rear naked choke.

    Most homers ever hit by a Yankee in a single season is irrelevant?

    Most homers by a non-steroid user is very relevant. He could get there.

    Proof is kinda, sorta important. There's only proof (sworn-testimony) of the current record-holder, not of either of the men who had broken the record before. Not that I think they're pure as new-fallen snow, but in terms of records, McGuire and Sosa are innocent until proven guilty.

    Not answering questions and/or suddenly losing the ability to speak english is proof enough for any reasonable person. Not to mention that corked bats aren't exactly legal.

    He didn't get stuck on 49.

    I hope he breaks 61 so I can go around wearing a customized shirt that has the number of HR's in the back and the front is emblazoned with "The Real Record".

    Bingo. I don't know too many people who seriously believe the ML home run record is not 61. Those ridiculous figures of a few years ago are going to become, as time passes, the kind of institutional embarrassment that leads them eventually to be either forgotten or simply ignored. Having said that, if 61 is to be broken, I would certainly prefer that it be broken by a Yankee. It should remain an in-house record.

    On "innocent-till-proven-guilty" syndrome: we're not talking about the law here. The people who did what they did during those weird spikey years are being widely ignored because people of common sense became deeply suspicious of this sudden bafflegab before Congress. If the issue ever comes to a legal determination, before judges and juries, then, if evidence points to the contrary, people like me will have either to change their minds or be viewed as cranks. In the meantime, the burden of proof is on the suspected.

    No arguing other points, but count mine a big NO to merging anything into any megathreads. I hate those. Just because a thread has a name attached, like A-Rod's, it doesn't mean everything about A-Rod should go into one thread. Heck, let different topics live or die of their own volition - what is this drive on this site to have everything in one single thread? Is bandwidth at THAT big a premium on this server?

    Re: Can Arod pass maris??

    In a way I'm glad those "juiced" HR records that passed Maris are unattainable for A-Rod. So as he approaches the "real" record of 61 there will be much less media attention and pressure on him. Alex is in a zone right now helping the TEAM win. I for one don't want to see the media circus, the switching to marked baseballs before each at bat, or anything else that may be a distraction to him as we are closing in on the WC or possibly catching the RS. What I do want to see is a RING on his finger.

    It would be cool if he passes 61, but I think realistically he will come short and only get to around 58 or something....

    Re: Can Arod pass maris??

    It's a tall task, but never bet against Alex Rodriguez. However, he would have to stay white hot until the end of September, and that's tough to do, to be that hot for an entire month (more like 5, 6 weeks, he was hot at the end of August too).
