From SI's mag today:
What do you guys think? If he his a number above 61, but below 73, will people feel that this is a record? Will he approach 60 with anticipation? I don't think it will be celebrated obviously like it has in the past, but will 'people' feel this is a true record if he break it?Maybe you will root for Albert Pujols to hit 62 home runs this season and assign that total greater value than Bonds's 73 or McGwire's 70 or Sosa's 66, even if the record book does not. Call it the people's record
For me, I would take it as the record without an asterik. I dont hate the guy (yet) just because he is the definition of a Reds killer. Not his fault he is good.
