What If Barry Just Opts Out Before 755?
Putting aside all the steroid allegations (and that's all they are in my book: allegations, yunno, innocent until proven guilty and all), with the San Francisco Giants on their way to yet another abysmal season, thus, him having no hope of getting that ever elusive World Series ring anyway, what if Barry got to 754 and just decided to quit? I mean, it's not like he needs to stay in it for the money, he's going to the Hall of Fame anyway and he'll have the single-season record (and many others) for quite awhile. Considering all that Hank Aaron went through getting to 715, to me, the record just belongs to him and for that reason alone, Bonds would be doing the right thing if he decided to just walk away before 755.
