There was no statistical evidence (that had been measured) to support the fact that the earth revolved around the sun prior to the Renaissance either. What's your point?

The b-in-l could be full of ####, but it also could be that my Civic is aging to the extent where I'm going to have to be a more efficient driver to get the same gas mileage.
Boiled down what we have is a claim that Rose's talk helped Votto in low leverage PAs.
And the supposed "evidence" for that is that Votto's performance in low leverage PAs stayed the same.
This is not serious argument.
Several years ago, Votto was standing in the on-deck circle at Great American Ball Park while Pete Rose was watching from a box seat. The two men struck up a conversation, and the Hit King passed along a few pearls of wisdom that resonated. Among other things, he told Votto that it's no sin to reach for the last cookie in the jar. Rose would never have amassed 4,256 hits if he didn't have a touch of the greed-monger in him.
"Early in my career, Pete kept an eye on me," Votto said
The last thing I'll say on this subject is although baseball is far and away the most scrutinized, categorized, measured and analyzed sport on earth, we still only measure or account for a small only a small fraction of the variables involved. We're not close to understanding the game as well as it could possibly be understood.

If I have the claim wrong, please clarify what the claim is.
Is that a joke? Go #### yourself.
