NY Times: A-rod could eventually pass Aaron


Recommended Posts

The home of the Braves is at 755 Hank Aaron Drive in Atlanta. That was the address given to Turner Field, which opened in 1997 as the successor to Fulton County Stadium, which had stood next door. It was there, in 1974, that Aaron propelled an Al Downing pitch over the left-center field fence and into history.

Aaron broke Babe Ruth's career home run record then, and for the next quarter-century nobody challenged it. Then, according to "Game of Shadows," the explosive new book by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters, Barry Bonds started using steroids. Now, Aaron's record may fall.

Bonds enters this season as the game's most intriguing, and most vilified, character. He is 41, with 708 home runs and a right knee that required three operations last year. There is no doubting his ability to crank homers

You're going to believe a NY TIMES article???

A-Rod won't touch Aaron. A-Rod won't even be in the same ballpark as Aaron.

terms of peak wise, I like A-rod better because he was a gold glove shortstop AND a 50+ home run hitter with a .300 average. thats more valuable than Aaron.

career wise, A-rod has to put up atleast 5 more solid seasons to get in a position where he can even approach 700

barring a Griffey Jr situation, he's a lock for 3000 hits, 500-600 HRs, and 300 stolen bases, thats for sure
