"This record is not tainted at all. At all. Period," Giants slugger Barry Bonds said after hitting home run No. 756 into the deepest part of AT&T Park in San Francisco, placing him above the esteemed Hank Aaron on baseball's career home run list. Whether it is tainted is up for debate (there is a lot of evidence that Bonds used performance-enhancing drugs), but there is no denying he rewrote one of baseball's most hallowed records. It was a huge moment. Period.
