From Jim Litke of the AP:

At his current pace, Bonds' chances of ever matching the 755 homers put up by Hank Aaron -- the second "ghost" -- have all but disappeared in the distance.

During Bonds' single-season record of 73 homers in 2001, he averaged one for every 6.5 at-bats. Coming into the season, his career average was one for every 12.7 at-bats. Since pulling within one of Ruth's 714 mark on May 7, Bonds has gone without in seven games and his last 22 at-bats.

At that "current pace," he won't ever catch Ruth, either.
