Re: Selig mulling pardon for Rose
I feel like many others that he should be reinstated. He should be in the HOF because he was one of the best players in the game. Where I see the biggest split is whether he should be allowed to coach again. I think he should be allowed to do what many other former players are doing such as being an extra coach in spring training and a roving instructor just because he would not have a big impact on the outcome of a game but could help repair some damage he has done to himself by helping out the young players who could really benefit from his experience. I really feel it would be a waste to have someone of his knowledge not be able to spread it on to this generation of players. He has been punished, but should also have some restrictions to protect baseball from being tarnished further. I think this means no permanent position with a big league club, but not necessarily no affiliation at all.
