    • McGwire: What a perfect way to end the home stand, by hitting sixty-two for the city of St. Louis and all the fans. I truly wanted to do it here and I did. Thank you St. Louis.

    • McGwire: Only sixteen players have hit fifty or more homers in a season. To me, that's a very special milestone.

    • McGwire: I study pitchers. I visualize pitches. That gives me a better chance every time I step into the box. That doesn't mean I'm going to get a hit every game, but that's one of the reasons I've come a long way as a hitter.

    • McGwire: I don't know if I want to break my own record. I think I would rather leave it as it is.

    • (After finishing the baseball season with a two-homer day, giving him a record 70 for the year. Sept. 27, 1998)
      Mark: I mean, it's unheard of for somebody to hit 70 home runs, so I'm like in awe of myself right now.

    Look! its another barry bonds. McGwire didnt hit 70 home runs he didnt hit any. You know why because he did the juice. Im a big Cardinals fan but Mark McGwire I forget who he was. He gives the Cardinals a bad name. Its a good thing Pujols will make everyone forget about him. Not only was McGwire a cheater and a fraud but he was also a jerk to fans. Ive always been a Cardinals fan but when I got older and knew who McGwire I wasnt anymore. I went with Seattle and Arizona cause of Randy Johnson. But when McGwire retired I went back to the cards. And you know what he never made a W.S. appearence with St Louis. I give Mark a bad rating and its my pleasure to make it lower.moreless
