This was the celebration during the game , that you wouldn't have seen at Petco or Dodgers Stadium. He's finally done it...

Lol Hank Aaron offering his congratulations...he looks sad. For now Bonds will be the king , until A-rod or Pujols takes his place.

Hank said everything he needed to say and nothing more. That was perfect.

Kudos to Henry Aaron for doing that..You know it wasn't easy for him. And shame on Bud Selig. Congrats Barry!! He's the best offensive player I've ever seen, hands down.

Shame on Bud?

The commissioner of the sport wasn't at Aaron's record breaking shot either.

Yeah, shame on Bud...He could've come to San Francisco, there's no reason for him not to be there. I don't care about Bowie Kuhn, that was 33 years ago. Aaron did the right thing, so should've Selig.

Oh and another Kudos to the Bascik for tipping his cap to Bonds as well. Everyone showed a lot of class...I wish more fans around Baseball would too. Unless of course they have the same sort of venom towards Ryan Franklin, Rafael Betancourt, and Juan Salas.

    • In his career, Judge has homered against us 35 times in 84 games (79 starts).   That’s more than .4 homers per game.   So yes, I’d say the odds favor him hitting one against us this weekend. I just want to beat the Yankees.   Anything that happens in an Orioles win is okay with me.   
    • Let the man hit.  Judge is a decent guy and the major league record is 73.  I don't consider Bonds' record a "real" record because of all the steroids he was on, but it's still the record.  Not sure what the insane level of hate for Judge is about.  I have no problem hating Yankees who are d-bags, but hate of random Yankee and hate of players like Roberts who went to the Yankees because no one else wanted him are over the edge. I think what I really hate are Yankee fans.
    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.  
    • Some of this year’s struggles with LHP strike me as one of those fluky things that happen in baseball.   Here are some 2021/2022 numbers vs. LHP: Mountcastle .842/.713 Hays .897/.701 Mullins .788/.573 Now Mullins, in his switch hitting days, was weak vs. LHP.   When he switched to hitting from the left side exclusively, he hit them much better last year, but my impression is he did most of his damage in the first half of the season.  So, it may be that LHP have figured out how to attack him and his 2022 numbers are more predictive of the future than 2021.    Mountcastle and Hays, on the other hand, are capable of doing much better than they did this year vs. LHP. Rutschman has a .568 OPS vs. LHP and I feel that’s fluky as well.   He had good splits against LHP in the minors and in college.  My guess is he’ll work on his RH stroke in the offseason and do much better next year.  (Honestly, he doesn’t have much else to work on.) The way OPACY is set up now, it favors LHB and thus LHP figure to do well there.   We’re still facing RHP 70% of the time, so I don’t think we want to load up on RHB and put us at a disadvantage in our own ballpark just to address a problem that exists 30% of the time and may be a one-year anomaly.       
    • Oh he’s going to hit it against us. I just hope it’s off a pitcher that isn’t with us for the long term. Like Lyles, or one of our up/down relievers.    But I want to see our pitchers go at him. We’re about building respect in our franchise back, and building confidence for next year.    Hyde is class, and it’s time we got back to that completely. 
    • Funny thing … Mantle hit 500th and for the Os, the mighty Mark Belanger hit a HR lol … his only one in 1967 and one of 20 career over 18 seasons 
    • Oh we have a history of being part of Yankee lore … Cal breaking Lou’s record, and Stu Miller giving up Mickey’s 500th (when 500 meant something) .. The Yankees were spawned from the 1890s Oriole franchise moved by the fledgling AL to NY as the Highlanders for a season then Yankees pitch to the MFY and strike his butt out four times !!  http://mickeymantle.com/500th-home-run/
