Here's another one for that mythical asterisk

Now that Barry Bonds has tied Babe Ruth's home run total, I'll say the same thing about it that I said about Mark McGwire: while it's true that hitting a baseball is one of the hardest tasks in sports, if you take something that adds distance--even just 10 feet--you're cheating. How many of those runs become long outs? (This is basically the same thing that Joe Torre had to say.)

Also, I'm sure that Hank Aaron was surprised to hear that he's a ghost.

I liked what Bobby Cox in Atlanta had to say: "Our reaction in the clubhouse has always been, that record's already been broken. Hank [Aaron] broke it. That's the big one. What's the big deal?"
