Now that Barry Bonds has eclipsed Henry Aaron as No. 1 on the career home run list, baseball and its fans will watch with rapt interest in the next five or six seasons to see if Alex Rodriguez supplants Bonds. One of those fans is Warren E. Buffett, whose position in the financial world is similar to the one Rodriguez occupies in baseball.
“What’s nice about investing is you don’t have to swing at pitches,” Buffett said. “You can watch pitches come in one inch above or one inch below your navel, and you don’t have to swing. No umpire is going to call you out. You can wait for the pitch you want.”
