Excellent commentary, Brian....
I agree with you 100%.
Rose should just keep his mouth shut. For a guy forever lobbying to get himeself in the HOF, throwing stones at someone else isn't going to endear him to anyone or help his cause.

And of Canseco's comments about A-Rod, are they about steroid use or his sexuality?


Canseco said he was "shocked" A-Rod wasn't mentioned in the Mitchell Report, so I'm assuming they're about steroid use.

Yeah, Pete Rose offering his opinion on this topic to begin with is funny enough, but the "greenies don't make you stronger" comment really takes it to another level.

Sigh. Sad thing is I really liked Pete Rose, and want to see him in the Hall of Fame.

Pete Rose is a womanizer, a gambler and a jerk who never gives his autograph to folks without charging them. He is also one of the best players to ever play the game.

All statements before the last don't matter when the HOF is concerned. He may be a jerk, but he belongs more than any player I can think of. Morality has no place in the HOF as if it does, Babe Ruth (druggie, womanizer and alcoholic), Ty Cobb (major asshole and racist) and Hank Aaron (admitted greenies user) all wouldn't belong either.

>I love how guys like Rose and Canseco come out of the woodwork

Don't forget Curt Shrilling.

Note to JJ and other Pete Rose apologists: he broke the biggest rule in baseball -- no betting on your own team. There are big signs in every locker room. So the gambling in fact DOES matter when the HOF is concerned. He broke one of the game's cardinal rules. I'm not saying he should or shouldn't be in, but it's wrong to say his gambling shouldn't be considered a factor.

Oh man, don't even get me started on Schilling. Here's something I wrote back in July, the last time he was talking about taking away awards.

You guys suck at life if you think Pete Rose doesn't deserve in the HOF. I never bet against his team..we were told at least but how does that help him...betting? Guys we are talking about steroids here..not extra energy. Im prescribed to an amphetamine and it helps you at the time you take it..not a long period of time like the end of the season (50 games or so).

8 pounds ? it's too much ! greets anyway ! :)
