I think the baseball hall of fame is the worst after the rock and roll hall of fame imo.

Rose cheated the game. Every clubhouse in America has posted in plain English, "No gambling." It was to preserve the integrity of the game after the Black Sox scandal almost killed the sport in 1919. Babe Ruth saved it. He had his faults, but was never accused of cheating the game. Mantle had his faults, but never cheated the game. Rose did. He bet on baseball while managing. Ty Cobb was a scoundrel, Steve Carlton was anti-media, Reggie Jackson was an arrogant imbecile. They all got in.

Pete Rose should never get in as long as he is alive. I would consider it posthumously, but not while he is alive to "enjoy" it. Find another hero and move on. Rose did.

I have never been a Pete Rose fan nor a reds fan. I do think however that Rose has suffered enough punishment and its time to let him in. Yes i think what he did was wrong, but there are other players that cheated that are in the hall.

Oh, so as long as everyone else is doing it, it's OK. Is that how you treat your kids when they come home and say their friends are doing drugs, shoplifting or sassing their teachers?

Glad we got that cleared up. Welcome to the Hall, Pete.

Its the same with the steroid era issue. If you let one in then you have to let the rest in. If Rose is not allowed in, then take the rest of the cheaters out.

No, you don't have to "let the rest in." Stop now. Pass a rule, law or create a policy. Cheaters are not allowed.

As for those already in who cheated, who would that be?
