His being kicked out of baseball absolutely impacts his playing career. We can't look back on it the same way. We aren't allowed to celebrate it. No Pete Rose bobblehead. No Pete Rose number 14 retirement night. Nothing.
Barry Bonds isn't banned from baseball. He is currently allowed to be on MLB merchandise. Pete isn't.
Holy overreaction Batman.
Pete Rose is a Top 10 player of all time and he was a Cincinnati Red. Barry Bonds never was a Cincinnati Red nor did he ever do jack for the game compared to Rose. This is a Cincinnati Reds baseball forum. Have you ever met either? I've met both and can tell you that the difference is night and day. Maybe even night and death.
