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?
Pete admitted to greenie use as well, which IMO was no surpise at all and hardly something that he alone was doing, but it was an enhancement so in essence it aligns him more with the PEDS users (and let's not forget who and where Pete hung out towards the end of career)
