Pete Rose is scum. He’s in total denial of his past actions, he clearly bet on baseball and maybe even his own team while he was managing, and he cannot be trusted. If Buck Weaver was banned from baseball, if they don’t exonerate Weaver at the same time they let Rose back in then they shouldn’t even entertain the notion of amnesty. Letting him back in would be an outrage to me – he shamed himself and the game. He was a great ballplayer (who will forget him for his play?), his accomplishments are inarguable, but he should not be allowed back in – principles have to mean something. This would be a blunder far worse than a tie all-star game. Bud Selig should stand up for something finally and say “not on my watch, hopefully not ever”.
