Even Babe Ruth Was On Some Kind of Narcotic–So Why Not Recognize Fully A-Rod and Bonds?

Babe Ruth (Right) with Hall of Fame First-baseman
Lou Gehrig at Yankee Stadium

From Wikipedia we print the list of the home run leaders. It appears that A-Rod of the Yankees will displace Willy Mays this year and if he can get 30 or more home runs each of the next six years he can easily overcome even that drug user Barry Bonds.When I say that I say it advisedly, knowing Alex Rodequez used drugs for three years (admitted) and even Babe Ruth was on some kind of narcotic sometimes–if only it was alcohol and tobacco. He was famous for his overnight binges from which he would walk into the Yankee clubhouse, shower, change into his uniform and go out and hit a couple homers.

List of top 300 Major League Baseball home run hitters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is a list of the top 300 Major League Baseball home run hitters. In the sport of
baseball, a home run is a hit in which the batter scores by circling all the bases and
reaching home plate in one play, without the benefit of a fielding error. This can be
accomplished either by hitting the ball out of play while it is still in fair territory
(a conventional home run), or by an inside the park home run.
Barry Bonds holds the Major League Baseball home run record with 762. He passed
Hank Aaron, who is currently second with 755, on August 7, 2007. The only other
player to have hit 700 or more is Babe Ruth with 714. Willie Mays (660), Ken Griffey, 
Jr. (630), Alex Rodriguez (626), and Sammy Sosa (609) are the only other players to
have hit 600 or more.
The last change in the cutoff for the top 300 was on May 4, 2011, when Prince 
Fielder hit his 199th homer and displaced Barry Larkinand Rondell White from the list.
