Congrats to Giants LF Barry Bonds on hitting the 756th homer of his storied career last night, passing Henry Aaron on the all-time home run list.
Yeah, it was an important homer and all, but what about the homers hit by Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez before that?
Seriously, I’m sure that I’ll be in the minority on this, but I’m a big Barry Bonds fan. Very exciting moment last night. (And if you saw it, you’ll agree that Aaron continues to be a class act.)
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
