Melvin Mora, Orioles third baseman What is your reaction to Barry Bonds tying Hank Aaron's home run record? I'm happy for him. I'm happy for his family. It is amazing how one guy can change baseball. Guys like he and [Alex Rodriguez], they breathe life into baseball. Those kinds of guys, you're not going see again, so you have to enjoy them every day.
