I'm pretty sure Hank Aaron didn't want his HR record to be broken especially by guys with speculation swarming around them.
Why would they mind. As it stands now Manny is a bigger threat then Floyd to surpassing them. Ask anybody, experts, media, fighters, fans. Most will say, as far as legacy is concerned, Manny > then Floyd. If Floyd retires now that is what it will be. If Floyd beats Manny on the other hand, then he would be a real competition for surpassing their greatness. Why would they coax floyd into fighting Manny by saying he is ducking him. if you believe as most fans do, including me, that Floyd is the favorite, I predicted Floyd by UD in a close one, but also see it the other way, why would they want that fight? It doesn't make sense.
