It's called biography. Things are not going to get glossed over, everything is fair game as it should be. If Mr. Eig uncovered information that could lead one to believe such an event happened, one that would certainly explain the strained relations between Gehrig and Ruth, he should have presented it. Much of history itself is written upon speculation, taking minor evidence and presenting it as such.
VF, is it possible for you to post the passages where this is hinted? that way, it would be easier to decide just how salacious or irresponsible the author actually is?
