    The only reason they could possibly have a need to put an asterisk is if he tests positive for steroids after breaking the record, but if that happens they'll probably just pull the record

    The thinking of someone like Barry is that he wasn't cheating. That's how they approach it. And it's not wrong to think that, because he has plenty of reasons to think that. Baseball didn't care. That was a reality. But what he's failing to recognize are two things. A) everyone knowing and telling him it's wrong and B) it was unethical given that consensus.

    That failure to listen was his ultimate downfall.

    But that's where all criminals go wrong. Most of what they do can be rationalized. It can make perfect sense. It can be perfectly legal. There's some twisted logic to every crime, but what the criminal fails to understand ultimately, and above all, is that if everyone is telling you not to do it, don't do it, because it's unethical, and you may face those consequences. Criminals never realize the consequences. You don't even need a conscious anymore to make the right and wrong decision, you simly need to listen to what people are telling you. It's almost that easy. But you have to open your mind beyond your perception. Barry Bonds perception was that everyone around him was doing it, so it's gotta be ok, but you have to open your mind to a larger picture than that.

    I would say there are three people now who hit the ball like that. As if they are just gods amongst men.

    Pujols
    Arod
    Bonds

    That's it. All three are electrifying on the ball.

    I can only think of two others who just olbiterated the ball like that, and they include McGwire and Canseco. I'm not trying to say anything. I'm just saying.

    No Sosa? Did you see those home run derby shots he used to hit? Well, those were probably a direct result of his corked bats.

    Who cares about Bonds, Arod is going to beat whatever records he can imagine. And he will do it with no astericks.
