Now I'm not saying that what Pete did was good, but it isn't as bad as steroids.
Unfortunately, GoReds33, it is THE Ultimate sin in baseball (betting on baseball).
What are the owners thinking? I thought Bowie Kuhn was bad until Bud Selig came along. Although Kuhn really screwed the Reds over in the Vida Blue for Dave Revering +cash trade and followed the whims to a fault of Walter O'Malley (my opinion), Kuhn is top notch compared to Selig. Donald Fehr has had Bud Selig wrapped around his little finger since the time they first met and that has been awful for the game of baseball. Bud Selig comes off as not being all that bright and Fehr: a genius.
Hank Aaron would have made a great Commissioner as would have Bob Costas. I'm sure there are countless others. As HalMorris pointed out, so many negative things under the watch of Bud Selig has happened to the Grand Ole Game. Bud Selig isn't, at all, what's right with baseball. And what's right with baseball continues to dwindle...
