Am I a bad guy for hoping Bonds gets 715 in Milwaukee Next thursday?
I coincidentally have tickets for that game, and I wouldnt mind being on hand for the cheater to get the biggest boos of his career.

Number 715 is inevitable, so why wouldn't you want to see Barry's historical achievment in person.

Throw it back!

I was at Milwaukee County Stadium when Nolan Ryan won Career No. 300.

The days Bonds hits 714 & 715 are days that will live in infamy.

That said I don't think there is anything wrong with being there.

Too bad Bud no longer owns the team as it would be fitting for this to take place associated with the commissioner who has let this debacle go on for over a decade trough today and beyond due to the fact MLB still doesn't test for the steroids Bond's took.

There will be more Bonds in the future until MLB decides to deal with the problem in a legitimate manner.

Technically 715 isn't a record. Barry Bonds does have a shot at the National League record, which probably won't get much attention. I have forgotten how many home runs Henry Aaron hit with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves before going to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The American League record is 708, as Babe Ruth hit his last six home runs with the Boston Braves.

Technically 715 isn't a record. It's the record for a left-handed hitter.

At least Mickey Mantle's record for switch-hitters is safe.

But he's not passing the record so :tongue: . I just wanted to think of a response to your post that couldn't be refuted. :D:

Gene Yeah, you're right. He's eventually going to hit it anyway and everyone knows it's not legitimate, so why no be there to give him a piece of your mind? Maybe you can get lucky and actually catch it... If you do get on Ebay quick before he gets banned for life.

Nothing is ever inevitable. I for one, would love nothing more than for Barry to get banned from MLB for life tomorrow before passing Ruth. That said, I would still go to see the game if he was about to break it. It's the same reason I watch My Super Sweet 16. I love to be in agony.

If Barry reads this one, will he turn around and hit 715 right handed? :o:

I was at a D'backs/ Giants game last week in Arizona, and Barry was given the night off. I was a bit dissapointed, I would have liked to see him play. I was very impressed with Chase field though.:smile:

Me too. I don't remember it because I was very young. The only reason I know I was there is because my dad told me we went. I was probably 4 or 5 at the time. What was the date and year?

That was before you were known as P Diddy Campbell (or is it Mack Daddy Campbell). :wink:
