I never said this changed my opinion of him. I'm just happy that I don't have to deal with the cognitive dissonance that other's do regarding his legacy.
I guess I don't find it the least bit surprising. Even in his 20 year's late admission to betting on the game, maintained he never did anything to adversely affect the outcome. Once a liar... I suppose.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
