On Barry Bonds: "I played one year in San Francisco [2002]. I watched Barry Bonds take 500 at-bats, and every single at-bat, he either hit a home run, or hit the ball harder than anyone on earth, or walked," White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. “He’s the best hitter I’ve ever seen, and there isn’t a close second, not just on this planet, but this galaxy. Righties, lefties, it didn’t matter with Barry. Here’s how good he was that year. The first game of the season, he hit a homer off Roy Oswalt in Houston to win the game. That gave him 659. He told us, ‘I’m not going to hit any more home runs here, I want to tie Willie [Mays, at 660] at home.’ The rest of that series, he got his hits, he hit singles and doubles, but no homers. When we got home, he said, ‘OK, I’m going to tie Willie today.’ And the first at-bat, boom, he went deep. The next day, he came to the park and said, ‘Today, I’m going pass Willie.’ First at-bat, he hit another homer. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

This is a blog of things that I find interesting and may center around my love of San Francisco and food.
