I don't see how a bat from 25 years ago that Pete may or may not have used, with or without cork in it at the time of use, has tainted his on-field performance or has any similar significance to Bonds use of PEDS...the comparison is baffling really. If you don't like him as a human, join the club, but he was an incredible force on the field without the kinda help Bonds had. Seriously, why waste time on the current Pete Rose when one can just move on?
