Re: TOPPS disses Rose
Who cares about Pete Rose anyway? Seriously. I touched off a mini Sportstalk brouhaha over calling Lance out on Twitter for demanding that Pete be reinstated before the Allstar game in 2015. I pointed out that people under 35 don't remember seeing Pete play, and therefore they don't care about him. I went so far as to say, that I hold a grudge against him for ruining the 1989 season. Lance flipped out, and then old ladies called in saying that they want Pete to manage the Reds. Yep, manage the Reds, now. Forrest Gump's Mother had a saying for this....
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
