• Pete Rose

    Want to know Pete Rose’s biggest mistake? It was not waiting until five years after his career to start managing.

    If Rose had never been a player/manager, and if he had not started managing full-time as soon as he retired, and if he had waited five years AND THEN started managing, he’d be in the Hall of Fame today.

    And, maybe, sure, he would have later bet on baseball as a manager and been banned from the game – as the rules clearly state.

    But, he’d already have been voted to Cooperstown, I am sure – and celebrated when he went in…

      Just my opinion:

      Pete Rose’s career is that of a no-doubt first-ballot Hall of Famer.

      Pete Rose should not be in the Hall of Fame.

      If they eventually put him in the Hall of Fame, I’ll be disappointed, but life goes on.

      Oh, one more thing. As long as people care about Major League Baseball, Pete Rose will be remembered as a great, whether or not he’s eventually inducted in the Hall of Fame.

      Actually, by keeping him out of the Hall, as a player, gives him more attention. It was the same with Scooter. When he was out, everyone talked about him on why he should be in. As soon as he was elected, no one talked about it any more.

      Then again, no one seems to care about Palmiero being out.
