Bonds breaks Hank Aarons Record

Barry Bonds crossed Hank Aarons most home runs records last night when he hit home run number 756. My feelings are mixed. I am happy for Barry but unhappy at his methods for achieveing this fantastic record. If he did not take steroids he would still have been in the top 3 or 4 players of his generation. By taking steroids he has become the greatest player of his generation but at the cost of his integrity. Will there be an asterisk against his home run number like Roger Maris' 61*......I do not know but its a crying shame that such a great player had to resort to artificial means to break this greatest record in baseball. The real test is going to be whether he gets into Cooperstown on the first ballot.....I think he will. Lets check in 5 years..
