Barry Bonds hit his 756th homer last night. He is the new All Time Home Run King. I tried to stay up for this but I dozed off after his first at bat and missed it. I'm bummed about that as I was front and center for Hank Aaron's 715th homer back in April 1974 and I wanted to see this live. With 24/7 sports everywhere I will see this homer countless times but nothing beats the thrill of watching it happen at the moment.

So congrats to Barry Bonds. I do believe that Alex Rodriguez, should he stay healthy, will break this before his career is over. He's 32 and became the youngest player ever to hit his 500th home run.

I also think A Rod will topple Bonds. But in which uniform? Angels? Yankees? Giants? White Sox? Cubs?
