Pete Rose Betting As A Player Will Keep Him Out Of Baseball, But It Should Not

 

With new evidence alleging Pete Rose of having bet on baseball now as a player by ESPN, it doesn’t change what I think. He should be reinstated.

Then again, I’m not Rob Manfred, but I have a feeling that perhaps his thought has changed.

Let’s face it, he’s not getting back in.

If indeed this is true, and it seems to the short-attention span of many that this is the case, then forget about. There’s no reinstatement or hall of fame eligibility.

This report by ESPN about Rose comes as Manfred, in his first season as baseball commissioner, was in what I believe considering on a serious level to possibly welcome back Rose.

The only welcome back he’ll get now will come next month when Cincinnati plays host to the All-Star game next month. And he will take part in a commissioner-approved pregame ceremony.

Then again, how many guys have lied about PEDs? Enough said, time to let Pete Rose back in baseball.

A Message of Thanks

First off, congratulations to the Golden State Warriors for accomplishing the NBA Championship. A 40-year drought complete with the league MVP and a great depth, worthy of basketball’s mountain top.

However, I’m from Chicago, born and bred, so proud of my roots. This week, 17 years after celebrating an NBA title, there’s a new dynasty two decades later. From the Bulls of the 1990s to the Blackhawks of the 2010s.

Three Stanley Cup Championships since 2010, the standard for all NHL teams.

However, people have to know just how far this Blackhawks organization has come from. A good ten years ago, not drawing any people to 22,000 plus every game, to radio only for home contests to high TV ratings for all games.

They market, but above all else they have the right people in place from the front office to the coaching staff to the product on the ice.

I guess there’s nothing more to say expect, Thank You Rocky Wirtz.
