Re: Would like an honest explanation from TM60+
i'd make a different argument.. it's very hard to compare era's of player because of all the changing science in human growth and technology. better bats.. mound height.. more access to study pitchers.. tighter wound baseballs.. the list goes on. the only comparisons can be made against others in your same era.. that said i believe during the raging steroid era of baseball many more pitchers were juicing. how many guy threw a hundred when aaron played vs. bonds era?
fact remains although many players were juicing at that time.. he was the best of that set. did aaron ever face right hand only relievers or was he seeing guys that thew 100+ pitches every start? it's just too different to compare.
