    You can make the same statement for any sport. The players have it easier today with scouting reports, trainers, peds. Id be surprised if the babe knew what a dumbbell was. It IS indeed a race thing. That was the whole point of Toshs joke, thinking black people dominate baseball, but he was wrong.
    Ok Dezzz.....let's say ther are no current players....
    let's just say INSTEAD that in the 1920s hispanics and blacks were allowed to play baseball....

    Do you still think the results would be the same? If you still say yes, than I know you are just being ignorant and are focusing too much on the race thing on whatever principle youre sticking to.

    Some of the best baseball players of that time were NOT ALLOWED to play. MLB was a restricted league.
    How is it you're not getting this.
    nevermind....i dont want to attack Dezz....i just dont understand why he doesnt understand. lol

    no, you've missed tosh's point as well

    by saying black he was saying minorities, your being too literal

    his point was if it wasn't the best competition, which it wasn't by a long shot, then how can u value those stats?

    No you guys are missing a point. Tosh made a joke insinuating that black players would have dominated the league if the league was unsegregated back then. But hes wrong, they dont even dominate the sport today.


    Would some records be different if aa's were allowed to play back then, sure. But this whole, lets put a asteric next to his name because no aa's played back then is beyond dumb.

    no the point was that minorities weren't allowed at all, your being too literal.

    Everybody else knows exactly what he was saying except you lol.

    The "BLACK LEAGUES" were not just filled with black players, you do realize that right
