    People should already recognize how special of a player he was and those who don't likely just started watching baseball and missed how unbelievably good he was when playing with the Cardinals. 10 straight seasons of .310+/30+/100+/.950 OPS+/5 WAR+ while never finishing lower than top 10 in MVP voting to start his career. He should already be regarded as one of the top 20 position players of all-time.

    I could have reworded that and said we already should, no doubt, but those who are missing or fell out of the boat should re-recognize at that point if that makes sense. I am 100% with you it shouldn't take that.

    Attendance at Roger Maris's 61st homer game was 23,000, something like one-third capacity. Sure it wasn't they hype environment of today. But it was one last game in a historic season, not some random game in a career. And the Yankees won that game to give them 109 (!) for the year. Why didn't anyone show up for that game?

    It could only have been a grand slam.

    Attendance tonight was 40,236 according to MLB.com

    That's still more than 5,000 short of a sellout, and on a Saturday night, so Angels fans had no excuse about work or school.

    Anyway, awesome milestone and what a way to do it with a grand slam.
    I just wish LA fans had more respect for this legendary player.

    Congrats Albert. Awesome accomplishment. Can't wait for him to pass Sammy, but not Jim.

    I don' think so. But I could see him finishing with 660+. Because he could and will be hurt for over the next few years.

    I think he could do it barring any set backs. but he would have to play at least 3 more years.

    I think 700 is out of the question. I can't see him staying healthy enough through the final 4 years of his contract and I also expect a big regression in power soon enough.

    I was out and missed it but am happy for him and it's nice to have it as a GS. I see him cracking the top 5. Regardless of "watered down" talk, look at [MENTION=2726]rsmath[/MENTION] #'s. Less than 1:2000 people who have played, that's sweet.
