It’s your friendly neighborhood Dave Man here once again and we’ve got a big Sports Report for ya today! Baseball history at stake! MLB playoff spots on the line! Thursday Night Football recap! NBA superstar gets U.S. citizenship! Oh, my!
But, TONIGHT it’s all about Aaron Judge, baby! The New York Yankees slugger goes for home run number 62 this evening…which would give Judge the American League record for most home runs hit in a single season.
However, there is an elephant in the room and we all have to address it.
Roger Maris, Junior recently said at a press conference that should Judge get to #62…that HE would be the true single season home run champ.
Maris, Jr. went on to say that he does not consider the numbers that Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Sammy Sosa put up legitimate.
Maris, Jr.’s take is a controversial one (though I agree with it). The problem with the Baseball Hall Of Fame and these MLB record is CONSISTENCY.
At this point, I don’t care whether the P.E.D.-users get into Cooperstown or not…I just need consistency. If Bonds, McGwire, and Sosa can NOT get inducted into the Hall Of Fame due to their suspected/proven/admitted P.E.D.-usage…then their records SHOULD not count. They need to be scrubbed from the record books.
OR, conversely, if you tell me that the records DO count…then put those guys into the Hall Of Fame. But, MLB needs to stop with the mixed signals! Either these guys are banned and their records should be ripped up…OR their records are legitimate in which case put them into the Hall Of Fame already!
Consistency is the key!! Anyway, let’s go, Aaron Judge! Hit #62 tonight, big guy! Good luck! I’m Davey Mac…and that’s just my opinion!!
