That’s what we’re all doing as Barry relentlessly chases Hammerin’ Hank. Last night’s 9-5 win was a nationally televised showcase, and give Bobby Cox and the Braves credit, they went after Bonds.

Of course, you’ve got to give Bonds credit too, after he hit two monster home runs to push his season total to 38, and his career numbers to 696. After the first titanic blast traveled an estimated 467 feet, Hank Aaron had something to say about it. “I’ve never seen a ball hit that far in this ballpark.”

After the second one went almost as far, only it was a laser beam, Aaron said, “I would have to put him past Babe Ruth. He has to be the greatest hitter that I’ve seen or heard of. People said Ted was great, the last player to hit .400. But who knows, if they pitch to Barry, he might hit .450.”

The win pushed the Giants into a three way tie for the wild card lead with the Cubs and the Padres each having one fewer win and one fewer loss than the G-men.
