    The biggest problem with Bonds and following his history making events is the media coverage. Bonds is not a media darling and not liked by a lot of the reporters because of his coldness towards them. Bonds has created a barrier around himself over the years and has cost him much publicity.

    I'm still holding a childish grudge for the single season record. As a Cardinal fan, the McGwire record was one of the greatest sports stories in my entire life. Then, lo and behold, Bonds comes along and in the only year that he hits more than 49 HRs, he goes and hits 73. Still not happy about that one.

    I was excited about his 700th home run; it was a milestone that I never thought I would see reached. Its too bad McGwire's injuries caught up to him or we would have 4 members of the 700 club.

    Top two choices are neck to neck, IMO.

    It's gotta be the "rumored" steroid use. Not only did he have a 24 home run jump from his best season, but the guy went from looking like Kenny Lofton to Mean Joe Greene. Give me a break. Something's gotta give.
