Re: Should Hall let Pete and the Junkies in the Hall?
Let'em all in, I say. Just give an accurate history. Pete Rose's entry should say banned from baseball for gambling. ARod's should say "admitted steriod user."
Someone on ESPN radio this morning said the Hall of Fame "is a museum, not the Vatican." How can you have a museum about the history of the game without the hits leader, HR leader, etc.?
What about other cheaters? The guys who used speed in the 60s and 70s and 80s?
Scuffers, spitballers and admitted cheaters like Gaylord Perry?
