" If you have to check the numbers [to determine yes or no for the Hall of Fame] then maybe you shouldn't be voting. Maybe you should know the game better."
Truer words have never been spoken. A truly knowledgable baseball fan can determine greatness by watching the player, and knowing or understanding their greatness, without the minutiae or drivel of a bunch of numbers. If a player is great you know it.
