  • ESPN and the Yankees were the only ones who cared about the exact date and time of this inevitable occurence.

    Live cutaways for every at-bat? Give me a break.

    • It's a 24 hour sports network and the 7th person ever to hit 600 HRs is about to do it. They damn well better cut away for every at bat. If not, what's the point of the network?

      • They should wait until after he hits the homerun, then cut away and show a reply.

              Haha. Last thing I saw said that he has been in a rut since he hit 599. He's had like 50 at bats or something since then. Do we really want a cutaway for each one?

              • Like anybody should really care that a steroids user is hitting some 'landmark" number of home runs. It's not like he's going to get into the HOF. Who knows how many of those HR's he cheated on thanks to his steroid use. So I don't really care if he is the youngest player to do it... He cheated. It's NOT historical at all. Just proof that it's easier to do if you use steroid.

                But yes... I'm glad it's over so that ESPN can cover something else now.

                  • Stop acting like a sanctimonious ass. Of course he's getting into the Hall. Not like Hank Aaron wasn't all on illegal amphetamines his entire career...

                          • So then Ming and Sloww should be all for Aaron and Mantle getting tossed out of the Hall.

                            And anyone else who says it's a "wrong" (or at least a Hall disqualifying wrong).
