    Petco Park in San Francsisco?

    Damn, I can't keep up with these stadium name changes.

    But I really liked the comparison between the outfield dimensions and the 100-meter dash.
    PEDs only explain a portion of what Bonds has done. Diluted pitching, smaller outfield dimensions, they all form pieces to the puzzle.

    I've always respected Aaron's hitting the bulk of his dingers while playing for a shitty club during a pitching-dominated era.

    As for Angell's column, well, it was kind of fluffy. If his thesis is that we can all enjoy baseball more now that Bonds' chase is over, I guess I agree.

    Diluted pitching, agreed.
    Except that when Babe Ruth played, with just 16 teams and no other major sports luring away other talent, the pitching allegedly wasn't diluted enough. Because of the color line.
    Are there 14 staffs worth of black and Latin pitchers now? Then how did Ruth have it easier, in caliber of pitchers faced?
