    Phillips: Junior will put up better numbers then Bonds this year

    Steve Phillips just said it on ESPN.

    Thoughts?

    I love Junior, I really do, but is he going to put up another 200+ home runs in his career? We've all noted he's lost a step in CF, so if he does it won't be as a Red unless he moves positions.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    He meant this year. They were talking about 2006 only.

    Oh this year.... well yes, with that I agree. I have my doubts about Bonds getting enough AB's to even qualify for the batting title [not that I think he'd win that, it's just an example of how few AB's I think he'll get.]

    I'm guessing between injury and IBB Bonds averages 2.7 AB's per game. So it won't be hard for Junior to out do him.

    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Maybe, Bonds will get walked a ton and when he gets stuff to hit I think he struggles.

    JR only has to stay healthy.

    If your talking OPS I say no way(Bonds walks so much); if your talking total HR's (hits) I can see that happening.

    I'm glad to see ESPN shaping such a positive image of Junior.

    Did anyone else see Bob Ryan on the Sports Reporters (or whatever that Sunday morning show is called) tell America to root for Griffey. It was a week or two ago and I almost posted at the time. His point was that Griffey is a good guy and family man who has achieved his success honestly.

    I'd rather not see Bob Ryan....he doesn't have a very TV friendly mug. :

    Gee, there's a real brainbusting prediction.
