I can't say that I'm in favor of eliminating the divisions. I hate the NBA format and wouldn't like to see baseball emulate that.
I agree with the Pete Rose resolution. He bet on baseball, so there should be consequences involved, namely no further direct involvment in the game (manager, gm, etc.). However, if he wanted to act as a roving hitting instructor, maybe. No doubt, though, he belongs in the hall for his accomplishments on the field.
