Buzz floating that Pete Rose

Buzz floating that Pete Rose admits he bet on baseball in his new autobiography. My two cents: so what? Rose deserves his banishment, and an admission of his past sins should have no bearing on his standing. If Selig uses such a mea culpa as a means to commute Rose’s sentence, then shame on him. Since when does such an admission undo past sins? And how about all those players unable to “admit” their failings (i.e. Joe Jackson) via a mass-marketed autobiography? Rose should remained banned, hopefully for all time, admission or not. If Selig and MLB can’t set and then enforce their own standards and, in this case, constructively send a message to all players about gambling on the game, then who will?
