It was chemistry that the single-season and career home run records to be broken, so why not RBI as well?

Shouldn't that be "Sorry, Hank"? I mean, the article points out that this man found an extra RBI for each Greenberg (in which case: Sorry, Lou) and Gehrig (back to: Sorry, Hank). Neither has been accepted by Elias, for a variety of reasons.

Or is the apology for getting his total wrong in the first place...? I suppose I'm just missing something here.

Retired male, way too much time on his hands, obsesses over obscure statistics? Sounds like your average baseball fan

/College football season yet?

Perfectly exemplifies the hardcore baseball fan and the obsession with numbers

Well, through my exhastive research, I watched every Shawon Dunston at bat in history and noticed that he actually hit 807 home runs. It turns out that the Cubs scorekeeper had a grudge about some girl they fought over in a bar and shorted him several hundred HRs to spite him. Shawon, and Cub fans, both being stupid, never noticed.

I want the record books changed on my word, unless you want to go back and watch every Shawon Dunston game that ever was.

"They do not want changes, especially in significant records involving icons like Gehrig," he says.

Like Ty Cobb having 4191 hits and a career average of .367?
