    Just curious as to who everyone here views as the true home run kings.

    I also want to view how racist everyone is when very few people vote for Barry Bonds

    To this day, Roger Maris and Hank Aaron are still the true kings in my world. Maybe I'm off in La-La Land, but 61 and 755, until broken legitimately, are the standard.

    And holy krap, one is white and one is black!?!? No ... can't be.

    Well, Maris had a 162-game schedule when he topped Ruth. Aaron had over 3,000 more career plate appearances than Ruth.

    I guess that makes Ruth the home run king. He hit them with greater frequency than any player in history.

    If you wanted an option to test racism and double-standards, there would be an option for McGwire and Aaron.

    Well, no, that would be Mark McGwire, who hit a home run every 10.61 at-bats. Ruth averaged a home run every 11.76 at-bats. Bonds (12.91) is third and Jim Thome (13.55) is fourth.

    Well, we're not counting the steroid players. That's the point of this thread, I think.

    No, you can count steroids players if you want.

    Sadaharu Oh and Roger Maris isn't an option?

    Relative to his era and his competition, Ruth is far and away the all-time home run king.

    But the records for home runs in a season and career no longer belong to him.
    So my pick in this poll (minus PED's) would be Maris and Aaron.

    Barry Foote and Sixto Lezcano.
  10. How about Roger Conner and Ned Williamson? This live ball thing is total bullshit.
