More or Less, They Weren't So Accurate

It matters not if Pete Rose does not make the Baseball Hall of Fame. What matters is thenumber of hits he made during his career.

It matters not if the asterisk is removed from Roger Maris' name. What matters is that it took 162 games for him to hit 61 homers. It took Babe Ruth 154 games to hit 60.
