Tour pro Carl Pettersson, who has used one exclusively for the past 16 years, told The AP's Doug Ferguson, "It feels a bit like a witch hunt to me."

Seems like you'd end up with a bell curve very close to what you have now.
There is no bell curve now. I mean, there may be -- in the human race.
There are dozens of Neifi Perezes for every ARod. And removing Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Pedro, et al. does not turn Jeter into a 600 HR hitter.
All you have to do to disprove this "bell curve" idea is to eliminate Jeter's appearances (or anyone else's) against the A-level pitchers from his statistics, and see what sort of a difference it makes. His numbers would likely rise a few points or a few home runs, but that's about it. It certainly wouldn't transform him into Honus Wagner at the plate or Ozzie Smith in the field.
