    Good call IMO. It has been said a previous commissioner (Bart something or other) was going to and died of the heart attack before he had the chance.

    I have Pete Rose's autograph. Maybe it will go up in value if he gets reinstated.

    In the spirit of Pete Rose, I think we should open up something on the betting board for this! HAHA

    It's a dirty sport anymore. Why not let the dirty players in?

    Rose wasn't a dirty player. Just a dirty manager...

    I'm sure he was pure as newly fallen snow before he became a manager - I stand corrected

    I thought it was the effect (affect?) of banning Rose weighed so heavily on him - Giamatti - that it literally killed him.

    Either way, if Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens are going to get in - and they are - then let Pete in.

    Who knows who Bart Giamatti's son is? Even if you don't know, you've probably seen him and didn't make the connection.

    My opinion on the thing is Rose was never going into the Hall for his accomplishments as a manager - he was a shoe-in for his accomplishments as a player, however.

    My opinion - vote him into the hall, and tell his ENTIRE life story. He belongs there, but those visiting 50 years from now should also know he's one of many tarnished stars.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
