    That's why Adam is such a special player, and the Reds would be wise to hang on to him.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I was wrong, McGwire ended his career a more prolific power hitter than the Babe. That's just sick having one homerun practically every 11 times at bat.

    I'm impressed at the level of consistency by Ruth and Killebrew over their careers.

    The improvements made by Bonds, Palmeiro and Sosa as they advanced through their careers is simply astounding. Chemically astounding I mean.

    Don't forget Williams lost seasons both in WWII and Korea - and at his peak. He would likely be very close to Ruth and Aaron had he played those seasons. Sosa and Palmeiro likely make the Hall of Fame (I'm guessing both will eventually be inducted) due to steroids since both appear to have sputtered and stumbled before. Bonds however foolishly sullied his reputation since he was a Hall of Famer before he ever took steroids and now will forever live with a cloud over his accomplishments.

    Adding in the seasons he missed, Ted Williams projects at 705 homeruns.
