Craziest steroid era stat: Bonds 1: hit HR 500 and 600 in consecutive years Bonds 2: April 2003- Sept. 2005, never went consecutive games without reaching base. Sosa 1: hit 60 HR in ‘98, ‘99, ‘01 - and lost HR title each time. Sosa 2: went from 30 HR/30 SB in ‘95 to 64/0 in ‘01.
Bonds was amazing. Impressed with him in Pitt, amazed in SF.
Early in his season with 73hrs, I was watching a game at work. Must have one of the first games in the opening series. He walked on 12 straight balls. Fourth time up, got 1 or 2 balls, then one drifted close to the plate and he took it out. The concentration after 2+ hours of not seeing a ball near him and then hitting one is incredible.
