Tec, you can take things I say how you want to take them. That is entirely your right. Trying to nitpick using dictionary definitions of words is a hallmark of internet debate. But I think it's clear what I meant to say, so you are being deliberately obtuse. You are also free to disagree, which I already knew you did. However, shobob and I disagree with you.
Death, I've lost games more ways than imaginable. But over the course of 10 seasons, you lose hundreds of games. But there are only 10 HOF votes in that time. I spend WAY more time thinking about the HOF (and career stats etc.) than I do about double switches. I understand completely that others feel differently, but I also doubt that I am alone.
Heck, if you're looking for something unrealistic about the game, calculate how many runners get thrown out at home. I've done it. It's almost 10 times more than in real life.
