Roger Maris doesn’t hold the HR record, Barry Bonds does at 73. We’ll see if judge can get on a historic tear and get within anywhere near the record
unfortunately barry gets one of these....*......

Now a resident of a Red state! Hallelujah!
and yet in that story you showed injury was not mentioned......just the avg length of time they played....
If Joe plays two years and leaves after a career ending injury and Stan plays 8 years without injury before getting canned, they averaged 5 years. The reasons for that are not the point.

90 percent or better of those talked about did not have what it takes to get off the bench and were gone.....

Maybe. Odd that they made it that far, though. In any case, your point has little to do with the stat. Average length of career is still relatively brief. And nobody is guaranteed tomorrow. So from the player’s perspective, it makes sense to earn as much as you can as often as you can.

ok but at the same time you have to prove yourself too......if you are on the bench for 3 to 5 years you may never get those millions...but even then bench sitters make pretty good money....some dam good....

Unfortunately, that "73" has an asterisk next to it in the record books...

No doubt. But if you make the league minimum for a 3 years and then you’re canned, your high skill productive years are over. At that point, baseball is usually no longer your bread and butter.

Judge is a phenom. But if he gets a bad injury in a couple of years, ending his pro ball career, he sure will hope to have padded his nest while he could.

Good. And I hope he makes a shit ton more. There is this year almost no offensive category that he personally doesn’t hold the number one spot in. He also has a gun for an arm and plays his outfield positions very well.

Plus, he’s a team leader and a great representative of and for the game — particularly great with the younger fans. Management ain’t exactly suffering any financial loss with Judge. The man puts the fans in the seats at home, on the road and for tv audiences.

barry and his fellow juicers ruined a lot about baseball.....especially the home run record.....
I’d say they largely saved baseball and gave its highest popularity in history..

People like excitement, which is what McGwire, Sosa, Bonds etc provided.

Yes, once they all left, baseball has fallen. That’s my exact point

It will never be known how many players benefited from PED's. Pirates had a player named, Brian GIles, whose exploits we enjoyed, but it was quite likely that his power was artificially enhanced. Brady Anderson. Many others. You still have to have talent to hit/throw the fokking ball.

Have you ever SEEN a body-building or weightlifting magazine or book? EVERY ONE OF THEM touts the possibility of enhancing strength, muscularity, and flexibility through intelligent training. It happens all the time to people who are not professional athletes.

But you, Harry, have concluded that it is not possible for Barry B to have built himself up through rigorous gym training, just like thousands of other guys have done.

And for the record, anabolic steroids do not produce muscle mass. You still have to work your ass off in the gym to get those results. In fact, those who have done so merely say that the steroids allow them to work harder in the gym than they could have without the steroids.
