You Guys Say: "I think Howard was one of a handful of people that had a legit shot to break 61. If everyone else wasn't cheating, every single at bat would've been a media circus once he got over 40..." -NeedaBangMaid

"i'll never forget that game in 09 when Howard hit that pinch hit bomb with a fever of 104 or something only a couple hours after checking out of the hospital." -LetsGoState
