No to Pete Rose

George Will has no compassion for Pete Rose. It’s not just the numbers, baseball--and sports generally--have to do with character and the two should be connected, indeed they are connected. Rose shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame.

"Rose’s coming clean is the most soiled conversion of convenience since . . . well, Aug. 17, 1998, when DNA evidence caused Bill Clinton to undergo a memory clarification. On the diamond, no one ever wrung more success from less natural talent than Rose did. But his second autobiography, which refutes the first, makes worse the mess he has made."

I think Selig should keep Pete out of baseball and out of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Only on the day Pete dies should they vote him into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
