That's really too bad.  How long until the reopen why Ty Cobb suddenly quit managing?

If you're keeping shoeless joe out, no reason to let rose in

Bingo

I might have been okay when it was believed that Rose only bet as a manager, but now that he has admitted lying again, I see no reason to trust him when he says he didn't throw games.

Yeah, it's a 50 caliber.   Hey isn't that Frank Dooley from Guard Dog Sercurity?

As for Pete Rose...he didn't love baseball.  He loved Pete Rose more.

Yep.

I love Pete but he's an idiot and continues to be the number one reason he's not in the HOF.

I wonder how much of his celebrity (and earning power) derives from not being in the hall

And according to Manfred, Pete is still betting on baseball.

I knew Pete was not getting reinstated when he skipped the last night or 2 of his Playoff gig to go sign things (do an autograph show) in Vegas.

But Pete Rose IS in the Hall of Fame!

His bits with Kane were epic.  And that one Halloween ad with the various wrestlers showing up at his door is classic.

I disagree - dead or alive, there's no reason to let a MLB player into the HOF when the player broke a rule that was well known by all the players.

Rose will get in posthumously.

At this point, there needs to be an Asterisk wing of the HOF.  There are so many legendary performances that a history of baseball is incomplete without names like Shoeless Joe, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, etc...  The only problem would be that guys like Cap Anson probably should be moved over to the * wing for actively pushing for barring African Americans.  I put him in a different class than Cobb, who may have been a bigot but did not (to my knowledge) oppose playing African Americans.

Coach. But yes, I don't think they will.

Sure, he was just a game fixer...
