Bonds goes for 500/500 club

we all know about his 633 homeruns
but he also has 499 stolen bases.. and is looking to be the first player to ever enter the 500/500 club

will it happen tonight?

I hope he gets his butt thrown out trying. I like to see good defense.

oh.. and Santiago drives in the winning run (Bonds) in the 11th. Giants stay 1 up on the Dodgers.

Woohoo, just got home from the game. What a game! I'm so pumped I don't know if I can sleep tonight. Sparkling defensive plays, emotional crowd (lots of fights in the bleachers), Bonds' 500th, Giants win to take sole possession of 1st, wowee

Not sure, but if Soriano keeps going the way he is, he'll reach it by his 12th or 13th season.

What a great night. Bonds gets #500, and scores the winning run to put the Giants in sole possession of first place.

I think the Giants will start heating up and the Dodgers will fall. LA will NOT hold sole possession of first. I've seen this happen the last couple of years. Every time LA gets close, they drop off. Hilarious! GO GIANTS!

Nah, he still gets about a dozen steals a year, even after bulking up. Last year was the only year in his career he failed to get double digits in stolen bases.

Now Sammy Sosa? He's forgotten how to run. I think he has 2 steals in his last 3 years.

Anyways, congrats Barry!

500 / 500 is an amazing accomplishment. this is a record that will be hard to beat. i don't want to say impossible, but this one will stand for a while. i wonder who is the closest active player to joining this club?

all the press is about the 500/500 club.. and of course, he is actually in the 600/500.. and will probably end up at 700/500.

to join the club, will 500/500 put someone in the same ranks as bonds?

500 / 500 is the mark. now its just becoming a matter of how high the bar is raised appove that. a future player that joins this club will draw comparisons to bonds. however, that player will always be called " the second best player to do it" .

If ARod didn't paly for Texas, he would probably eventually get there (46 SBs is his high season total), but since Texas just sits around waiting for homeruns, he won't get a chance to steal much.

Canseco, if he comes out retirement, has a chance.

I don't think it is Canseco's choice as to whether he gets to play in the majors again... no team wants him.
