700 FOR BONDS:
It's fashionable to hate Barry Bonds. Of course, here in LA, he's hated because he's a Giant. The media hates him because he doesn't play the game of smiling while answering their stupid, lazy-ass questions. The fans hate him because he plays the villain. And everyone hates him because he is suspected of steroid use.

Nonetheless, we are living through the era of a new Babe Ruth and we ought to recognize it. Nobody else out there is hitting 700 home runs. Nobody else has hit 73 in a season. Nobody else has had 200 walks in a season. In fact, if you attend a 3 game series of games between your local team and the Giants, you are almost guaranteed a Bonds home run and will quite possibly see two or three.

Sometime next year, he will pass the magic numbers of 714 (Ruth) and perhaps even 755 (Aaron) home runs. When he does, he will become the first since Ruth to hold both the single season and career home run records. It is said that it is better to be respected than loved. Unloved as he may be, Bonds' hitting prowress has certainly earned our respect.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.
