Aaron plans to give Bonds the Bowie Kuhn Treatment
2007-04-10 18:30
by Bob Timmermann

Current career home run leader Henry Aaron said today that he won't be around to watch Barry Bonds try to break his record.

Aaron told Terence Moore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he wouldn't even attend the games when the Giants play in Atlanta (August 14-16).

"I'd probably fly to West Palm Beach to play golf," Aaron was quoted as saying in Moore's column. "Again, it has nothing to do with anybody, other than I had enough of it. I don't want to be around that sort of thing anymore. I just want to be at peace with myself. I don't want to answer questions. It's going to be a no-win situation for me anyway. If I go, people are going to say, `Well, he went because of this.' If I don't go, they'll say whatever. I'll just let them make their own mind up."

Commissioner Bowie Kuhn was not in Atlanta when Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record on April 8, 1974. Kuhn felt that it was undignified for a man of his importance to be going around the country to follow a player break a record.

The difference between Aaron and Kuhn is that Aaron seems to not want the hassle of having to answer questions about Bonds' alleged use of PEDs and Kuhn was just really an arrogant idiot.

So will be wondering in about a dozen years from now if Barry Bonds will be following Alex Rodriguez around the country to watch his record get broken?

A-Rod's got 6 HRs in 7 games. I wonder if Mark McGuire will be out this fall to congratulate A-Rod on hitting 74 home runs. If Alex Rodgriguez keeps hitting like he has been it won't be a dozen years for the all-time record, it will be next September.

Why would McGwire care if A-Rod hit 74 home runs?

Golf in West Palm Beach in August? August??? I don't think Aaron has thought this through yet.
