By the way, I found a link to a page that shows how Ruth did against some negro teams. It says a ton of interesting stuff including how Connie Mack said that if you took Wagner and Lloyd and put them in a bag, whoever you drew of the two, you couldn't lose.

Oh, also a lot of negro players are overrated due to the fact that a lot of them were FARMERS AND HAD OTHER LOW INCOME JOBS! The professional players played it as their job! The negro players either didn't get paid or very, very little. So, obviously they had to get their source of income elsewhere. So my point is a lot of them weren't very good and their stats were blown up because they were facing weak competition. Sorry for the excessive rambling but damn somebody had to finally say it! Somebody had to finally say it? That the African American players in the past were not as good as the white players? I admit, that came out wrong. I in no way meant to say that white players are better than black players. What I meant to say is that a lot of black players stats aren't as good as they seem because they were facing low caliber type players. I mean the guys in the majors at the time played it as their JOB! Some black players played in the Negro leagues, but at one time or another worked as something else. I mean if you played in the majors and somebody else was a part time player and say they worked at a store or something, don't tell me that the major league player wouldn't easily kick the other player's ass. Yeah, you know you agree. But that's not to say their weren't black players that couldn't compete with guys like Ruth! One of my favorite negro players happen to be Satchel and I know for a fact he would have had his share of pitching records if he originally pitched in the majors. But what I don't like, is everybody saying "Oh, if black players had played with Ruth and all those guys, they wouldn't be anywhere near as good!" HELLO, it's called talent, dumbasses! As you can tell, I'm really touchy when it comes to this kind of subject. And to all you Bonds lovers up there, shut the hell up! It's obvious to me you guys by trying to point out negative things about players in the past, in reality are really obsessed with Bonds cheating ass!

When we can insert black players into Ruth's era, or have Ichiro batting against Walter Johnson, or have Hank Aaron put down the damn bottle of uppers and greenies he kept in his locker room... then we'll talk. Man, I am tired of people saying that. "Let' see how good Ruth would have been if black players would have played during his era." I read somewhere that Ruth regularly played exhibiton games against the best of the Negro Leagues. Guess what? He batted over .400. Sounds to me like he still would have dominated. Dumbasses!

Records may fall, but the Babe endures

That's exactly why no one will ever surpass him in popularity and in greatness.

Bonds says he doesn't want to risk injury

I for one don't want to see him break Aaron's record. Bonds does not deserve to have the honor. I hope he doesn't break it and if he does...asterisk tiiiime!
