SCENARIO: YOU'RE facing Barry Bonds when he has 755 career homers. Second inning, bases empty. How do you pitch him?
TOM GLAVINE, Mets, 295 career wins
"Like it's the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh game of the World Series. I'm going to try to get him out, but I don't want to give up the home run that breaks the record. It's not like it would ruin my career, but I think it would be probably overshadow some other things I've accomplished."
CURT SCHILLING, Red Sox, 213 career wins
"You just don't want to be that guy in the highlight. So you do whatever you have to do to get him out. I've never pitched around him that I can remember. But you have got to make pitches. Winning the game is the absolute end goal. So, you pitch to him however it fits into what you're trying to do."
DAISUKE MATSUZAKA, Red Sox rookie
"I have no idea. The only place I've really seen him is in highlight reels." As for giving up the historic 756, says Dice-K, "As long as it doesn't cost the game, I am fine with being the pitcher who throws that pitch. I hope I face him during the interleague series."
JAMIE MOYER, Phillies, 221 career wins
"How do I pitch him? Just like the last hitter. It's just another at bat. I wouldn't be motivated [to avoid giving up 756]. All I'm concerned about is giving my team a chance to win. I've given up plenty of home runs before. Whether it's somebody's first, 300th, 500th or whatever, it's all part of the game. I've given up five to Barry."
JOE KENNEDY, A's, 41 career wins
"It would be enjoyable, because everyone will be watching. It would be exciting. I'd try not to let him get it, [but] if he does, your name will be remembered. It's not really a bad thing. You could win three or four Cy Youngs, [people] would probably remember the home run before they remember the Cy Youngs."
