Griffey or Bonds argument is limited up until 2000 when Bonds is alleged to have started taking PED's and Griffey traded to Cincy and subsequently fell off ) ...

I Obviously believe Bonds was the superior player over that time frame. So do ya thing I've made it easy for you.


My friend you have dug yourself into a deep hole here. It's very brave of you. But lets look at the numbers.

Bonds seasons prior to and not including 2000 - 14
Griffey seasons prior to and not including 2000 - 11

Bonds vs Griffey

Avg # of HR's/season - 31.8 vs 36.2
Avg # of RBI's/season - 92.8 vs 104.7
Avg # of Hits/season - 143.6 vs 158.4
Avg # of SB/season - 32.9 vs 15.2
Avg BA/season - .288 vs 299

Sure Bonds won 3 MVP's in 14 seasons vs Griffey's 1. But Bonds didn't hit .300 until his 5th season vs Griffey in his 2nd. Griffey hit 40+ HR's 6 times in those 11 years. Bonds hit 3 in 14. Griffey had 10 straight Gold Gloves during those 11 seasons. Bonds had 8 in 14.

The stats are close but Griffey still had the edge over Bonds during that time.

I saw they blew up the Hosier/RCA Dome over about a month ago but they didn't use dynamite they just gave Porkins some 6 alarm chilli the night before and he huffed and puffed and farted the Dome Down!
All witnesses with a 3 mile radius are still being decontaminated.
