AMEN!!!!

If off the field antics can keep one out of the Hall of Fame there are several men in there that should be put out. Ban the man from baseball but do not ignore the Player!

Rose In The Hall Of Fame!

Side Note: His speech should be limited to his playing time and not involve the banning, repeated attemps to be reinstated or any type of 'bashing'....you earned the Hall based on your merits as a player, talk about those and nothing else!

Rose isn't being kept out of the Hall because of some silly off the field antics. He is being kept out because he broke what is basically the only rule baseball has ever held sacred. Simple, straightforward, no-nonesnse rule : Bet on baseball, you are not welcome in baseball. The rule is there and is harsh for a reason. Baseball has survived wars, depressions, labor strikes, steroids, and everything else that has come its way. The only thing that has ever come close to destroying it was gambling.

Sorry, misunderstanding. His betting was not 'silly' but it did not pertain to him the player, his hits, his hustle, his play. I agree he should not be involved with baseball now or in the future. But the Hall of Fame is a place that celebrates the past and great history of this game and like it or not Rose was a major force in his playing years!

Celebrate his feats and the pure joy of watching him play, boo the better but cheer the player. This is terrible that Bud sits on his hands with Barroids makes his way past Babe and Hank but can't give the all time hits leader a plaque. Here's you Hall of Fame day now go away.......simple I think.

Yes, you have to put him in there. Like someone else said, if it's about off the field things then there are plenty of people who shouldn't be in the HoF.

I don't care if he bet on baseball as a manager. When he was a player he gave the best effort he could 100% of the time. He holds the record for most hits out of any player to ever play the game of baseball. He should be in there.

He's a moron and a jerkoff but he's got more hits than anyone in history and his controversey came after his playing days. I put him in the Hall, but that's where it ends. He doesn't get to do anything else involving the game ever again.

I don't care too much either way, but I'd vote for him.

But the rule is posted in every locker in baseball, so I don't feel sorry for him.

We've talked about this a bunch of times, but it doesn't matter if he threw a game or not. If he bet on his team to win, that still can impact the game. Maybe he leaves a pitcher in there longer than he would have. He brings in a closer in the eighth inning instead of the ninth. He forces a good injured player to battle through it. There are plenty of ways that betting for your team to win can impact a manager's decision making that is bad for his players, his team, and baseball.

So I could care less if he makes it or not.

I would consider voting him in after he's dead.

Yes. Pete Rose was one of the best hitters in baseball history. He bet on baseball, but betting on baseball has nothing to do with his actual performance on the field.(When he played, him managing is a different story).

Getting into the Hall of Fame is all about how you play on the field, not what you do off the field(unless of course the issue was steroids).

Rose in the Hall Of fame, but banned from baseball is highly reasonable too me. You can go either way really.
