    Let's be honest about this. Let's say Selig reinstates Rose tomorrow (which will never happen). IMO, I don't think the writers would vote Rose into the HoF. I doubt he'd get enough votes to stay on the ballot past the minimum time.

    All of these Rose arguments, on this board and others, are pointless because he will never be reinstated and he would never be inducted.

    He's no longer eligible for the BBWAA vote; it would be the HoF oldtimers committee. One of which is Joe Morgan, who recently said he wants Pete in.

    It could happen, someday. Rose just needs to zip it and lay low. The more he talks, the less a chance it will happen, IMO.

    Wait til he dies, then put him in. Honor the baseball player, don't let the person enjoy it.

    Telling Rose to be quiet is like telling the sun not to rise. I don't think the man has shut up his whole life.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Nice to know his priorities are all straightened out.
