Major League Baseball's record books are ready for some big numbers. San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds is set to top Hank Aaron's all-time homerun record of 755; New York Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez is set to be the youngest player to reach 500 career homeruns; and New York Mets pitcher Tom Glavine is set for his 300th victory.

Sporstwriter Howard Bryant, author of Juicing the Game: Drugs, Power, and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball, talks with Scott Simon.
