Barry Bonds is 1 Away From Sole Place of #1 [David Stefanini]

Well ladies and gentlemen, Barry Bonds has tied Hank Aaron for first place on the all-time home run list. With the next homer Bonds hits, he will be alone atop the baseball world as the greatest home run hitter.

I suppose the world is having a hard time dealing with this. Some people out there probably wish he would have come down with a severe illness that would of forced him to retire; but he didn't. We have to just deal with and move on with the fact that Bonds has the record.

Most people around the baseball world are saying A-Rod will eventually get to whatever home run total Barry stops at, but no one can say that for sure A-Rod will ever get there. For the time being the MLB and the rest of the world is going to have to deal with the fact that Bonds is atop the baseball world. There is nothing anyone can do about it, and nothing will be done.

In the upcoming years, if it is proven he has cheated, maybe the record books will be altered. Until then we have to live with the realization. Bonds is the home run champ.
