Do you think he can beat his record?

He hit 2 out tonight.

I would be surprised. You think he didn't see many pitches last year. I think this year will be worse, because he won't see a pitch from game 1 in the season (though I guess he saw 2 today). Last year it was only around midseason when everyone really started to pitch around him. I also think Kent out of the lineup is going to hurt him.

Regardless let the chase begin
Record: 73
Bonds: 2
Extrapolates to: 324

he's on pace to hit 324 hrs and 810 rbis this year..... i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif

if pitchers would just pitch him high and inside he would'nt send so many yard....

Gosh, those numbers might get him the MVP i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif

Nice to see an old school rule pop up now and again. I have been saying this for years. Pitchers do not protect themselves or their teammates as much as they used to.

unfortunately, if you pitch barry high and inside, that big head of his gets in the way...i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I don't think high and tight will do the job on Bonds, and you can pitch around him all you want, but that man will take a walk.

Unfortunately, pitchers today aren't taught to pitch the high inside fastball. Guys are crowding the plate, and young pitchers are often nibbling around the corners because of the fear of the batters with metal bats.

Well he's still on pace for 324. He's hit another one tonight already.

04-03-2002, 11:33 PM
btw, I agree BMV.

04-03-2002, 11:36 PM
Actually he just hit his second for the night. I believe he is still dialed in. That makes four on the season in only 14 innings.

He does need one more RBI to keep that pace alive though. Come on pick it up Barry!

He's certainly picked up where he left off last season.

04-04-2002, 02:29 AM
Yea he has, but he needs to get those walks up if he is going to match last season i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

04-04-2002, 11:56 AM
yeah he needs to pick up the walk pace if he doesn't, then he sucks.... i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

Kid- LOL

Don't worry about Bonds getting his walks. With the start he's had, pitchers will be walking him like crazy.

Not looking good for bonds tonight. He is only 1/2 with a double HBP and a Walk. His average is tumbling to about .800, and his home run extrapolation falls all the way to about 230. Hopefully he can get out of this funk soon.

04-05-2002, 07:48 PM
geez...he's only hit 5 homers now...that pace has dropped off like crazy. They should fine or trade him.

What is the deal with this guy? I mean, he's always hit for power but over the last 2 seasons it seems like he has it down pat. It's like he's mastered the art of hitting home runs. Sammy Sosa too for that matter.

04-06-2002, 11:09 AM
that's a good point epitome. Some will try to blame watered-down pitching, but I just think those two guys know how to hit a baseball. nothing less.
