Lets go ahead play the game of had Pete murdered instead of gambled as his crime. The thing is after 25 years Pete would still be commiting murders like he is still gambling and if you wanted the details of the murders he would be happy to give them to you after you paid him $29.95 for his new tell all book.
Army Brat had it 100% right. Rose's main motivation to get back in to baseball is based on nothing more than making a buck. The HOF means little to him. Pete has always been about doing whatever needed to be done no matter how unethical to load his pockets with as many Benjamins as possible. Pardon me if I fell zero sympathy for him.
Reds fan since 1968 win or lose.
