From the Oakland Tribune -
When Alex Rodriguez hit 14 home runs in the New York Yankees’ first 18 games, most people watched his swing.
Barry Bonds paid attention to his eyes.
“I can see it on TV. I see it in his face,” Bonds said Tuesday. “You can just see that his eyes are just different. He is just different, and it’s just phenomenal to watch. And I can see it as a player. We’re able to pick up on little things you guys aren’t able to.”
What if A-Rod hits 74?
“I would be ecstatic,” Bonds said. “It wouldn’t bother me one bit. … I’m so happy for him. It’s great. … I hope you guys enjoy it too, because it’s just phenomenal. I hope he hits 100. I really do.”
Can you imagine how insane it would be, around A-Rod and the Yankees team, if Alex managed to get near 70 homers this season? It’s almost better if it doesn’t happen – at least for the team, in terms of cutting down on the media attention/heat.
