Not A Good Day For Baseball.

Today Barry Bonds tied Babe Ruth for the title of most career homeruns by a left-handed hitter. (Here.) Too bad.

Here's what Bonds had to say about his own accomplishment:

"This is a great accomplishment because of Babe Ruth and what he brought to the game of baseball and his legacy in the game of baseball," Bonds said. "This and a World Series ring to me would be the ultimate. He changed the game of baseball. ... It's just great to be in the same class."

If only he were.

Bonds is a great baseball player who belongs to a small class of great players and the sooner he joins them the better. We'll say it again. What's good enough for Shoeless Joe Jackson and Pete Rose is good enough for Barry Bonds.
