Another home run tonight, 43 total, 6 games in a row, homered in 23 of his last 36 games. Steroids?

Before the game, Stanton had as many HRs since July 5th as the entire Giants ballclub. :lol:

Isn't there a gentleman's agreement to let anyone clear waivers in August?

This guy is off the charts right now, he has just hit two more home runs tonight and has 49 on the season. Aaron Judge is second in major league baseball in home runs with 37, Stanton is really distancing himself from the rest of the pack.

One of my favorite players. Calls out the team a few weeks ago and then goes on this run. Great leader.

are fans pretty much in agreement that 61 is still the single season HR record?

Good question. When someone does break 61, do we celebrate?

Of course not. The record is 73 home runs.

70 and 73 are not records in my book since both of those guys cheated. But do we really know what's going on this year. Is it really the ball? That was the excuse when 70 and 73 were hit.

Yeah. And he hit 73 home runs in a single season. It strikes me as very weird and childish to pretend it didn't happen.

You can come up with all sorts of reasons for dismissing records. Some idiot on ESPN wrote a piece saying the true record is 37 home runs. All of this is just silly nonsense. What's written in the record book is really all that matters.

It's really 60. 60 in 154 games. There were rumors that Maris was on some pills too back in the day.

It's 73 in 162 games. Why are you trying to deny reality?

Very simplistic.

It's not like they did it during a juiced ball era or something benign. There were literally 4+ guys who broke that record within the span of a few years, and their heads were as big as bean bags. That's abnormal. There was even a Congressional hearing over it, if you recall. MANY of those guys also aren't in the Hall of Fame for that very reason.

To act as though there is no distinction is overly simplistic and ignorant.

I know you think many of my thoughts are simplistic. The flip side to that is you tend to overly complicate things. It's fine to have a discussion about the most impressive HR season, or about how much steroids helped the 73 mark, and about a ton of other things related to this discussion. When you start saying things like "73 isn't the record" you're being a moron who's denying reality and it's not "simplistic" to point out reality.

BBWAA is comprised of a bunch of old holier than thou retards. See also: Pete Rose not being in.

I'm not sure what your goal here is. I didn't say anything remotely wrong or controversial. It's like you want to argue but you know you can't outright disagree :lol:
