    Players should be considered based on their playing performance. What Rose did occurred when he managed. Will Selig let him in? Rose can take bets on if it will happen or not 🙂

    There is no disagreement that Pete Rose was a good ballplayer.

    I may be in the minority but I don’t think the ban should be lifted. To many sports idols are given a free pass for doing unethical things. Surely he knew it was a conflict of interest and unethical to be betting on games while in that business.

    But then we let others get away with cheating in the game such as one of the latest 500 homer hitters. What glory is there in using drugs to power up to attain those records. I suppose in a way its the same thing. At least hammerin hank did it honest.

    A Major League baseball Hall of Fame without Pete Rose, baseball’s all time hits leader, is a travesty. A joke. A player either makes the The Hall of Fame or doesn’t based on what that player accomplishes between the lines, while he played the game, and nothing else . . . period! Who is Bart Giamatti anyway to judge Pete Rose (or anybody else for that matter) and ban him from this shrine to baseball’s greats. Who is Bud Selig to continue this ridiculous decision? Look, Pete Rose will be judged one day by a higher authority, as we all will. In the meantime, Rose’s many accomplishments on the field have more than earned him the right to be enshrined in Cooperstown. Let’s get this right before we have another “Jim Joyce” issue and some commissioner steps up and admits this was wrong . . . after Rose is dead.
