It shouldn't be a formal thing, but basically a guide that says, in this era the average HR's, RBI's, etc. were this compared to previous eras and have a different cutoff. Although, pitchers from the dead ball era are given a break, so maybe i don't know what i'm talking about.
However, I'm not a McGwire fan, but the fact that Baseball was on his and sammy's nuts to recover from the strike, i think it's hypocritical how they treat these guys. MLB knew what was going on and now it's like they have the plague.
why should there be different milestones when many of the pitchers they faced were juicing as well?
