Before reading this you have to see that this an attempt to start an argument:

Who owns the single season Home run record? IS IT...

Barry Bonds: Statistically, it is Barry Bonds because he crushed 73 round trippers in the year of 2001. The only reason why anyone is questioning this is because Barry Bonds used steroids like 2 others on this list. Barry Bonds could or could not own the record fairly, it depends on who the speaker is. 

OR

Mark McGwire: He is officially in the second spot on this list of homers in a single season. In 1998, Mark smacked 70 homers, which is phenomenal for a slugger to achieve. TOO BAD HE ADMITTED TO USING STEROIDS IN 2009!!!!!

OR

Sammy Sosa: An unbelievable hitter, Sammy set the mark of 66 in 1998 before Mark McGwire broke it at the exact same time he set it. As a slight rooter for Chicago because I feel bad for them (it sounds traitor-like because I am a fan of the Brewers) I am happy that a Chicago slugger is holding such a great record for a little bit of time. Though, there is 2 problems: #1- St. Louis slugger broke it at the same time he set it ( A St. Louis slugger!!! That is one thing my teams don't like and have in common, St. Louis!) #2- They both did steroids!!!! I rest my case...

OR

Roger Maris- He is the steroid free slugger who broke the Babe Ruth 60 HR record for a season. He originally broke the record with 61 HRs in 1961.

Who deserves the recognition for this feat????
