What is the bloody point using those hologrammed balls until after he hits 499? The point is validify number 500; 499 ain't worth shit.
UPDATE: I stand corrected: via FARK
"Weird disclaimer of the day: #499 might actually turn out to be #500! The reason : The Yankees and the Orioles on Friday will finish a game suspended on June 28. If A-Rod homers in the last two innings of that game, and he is due up second in the first inning they will play,it will be officially credited as happening on June 28! This would technically make last nights home run #500...hope someone saved it...."
