Re: Idea: Pete Rose for Extra Innings Show
As someone who didn't grow up idolizing Pete Rose, I was 11 when he was banned, I don't care to listen to him. When I do, I can't help but think that it is a self serving ego trip when he does talk baseball. I like the stories of the Big Red Machine and such, but frankly I would rather listen to Marc Amazon. I get very annoyed with Doc Rogers, I could only imagine how a Pete Rose show would go. Every caller telling him how he used to love to watch him, and then no one would be allowed to argue with Pete.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
