    Rumors: Bob Castellini and Pete Rose

    FWIW, I am hearing that Bob Castellini is set to discuss with Selig the possibility of bringing Pete Rose back into the Reds' organization in some aspect before the end of the year. Reportedly, Cast is looking into what it would take to get Rose reinstated.

    I think we all knew it was only a matter of time until this rumor would surface.

    i still think mlb should let him rove around the minors talking to young players about how to hit, play and not gamble or do the bad things that can happen

    and all that

    Castellini can ask but I don't see any way Selig would ever let Rose be involved with a baseball team again.

    Stupid idea.

    Cast would instantly become the worst owner in Cincinnati history if brings Pete back in any fashion. The Reds would become a complete joke.

    Not as big a joke as baseball saying his Hall of Fame eligibility is going to expire when he was never eligible to begin with...

    Pete has no business anywhere near the operations of any MLB club, period. He hasn't reformed himself in the least, and the Reds don't need the dark cloud that Rose would bring along hovering over the organization.

    Or, he could become the most revered owner in Cincinnati history to the fans (at least the casual fans) in the city.

    I disagree. Although I don't personally want him back just yet, there are plenty of fans, mostly older than us, who do. I'd be surprised if Marge didn't do some lobbying in that regard before she sold the controlling shares.

    "Welcome Back Pete Rose" night would be a sellout for sure.

    I wouldn't bet against this rumor. Odds are it may happen.

    (Sorry, I couldn't resist).

    I think it's a bad idea, but I never believed Pete in the first place, so I'm not in the majority of Reds fans.

    I grew up as a kid idolizing Pete. As a grown man... I do not want Pete Rose anywhere near young ballplayers.

    Does Pete really want to help others or help himself (not gambling rehab help, but get himself in the public eye)? Think about it.

    I am on the other side of the fence on this one. You can't take away what he did. He and everyone knows he did it and he admitted it and apologized. Yes after lying in the first place. But if you have a passion for the game like he does... he will never give up. If he was allowed back into baseball he will be monitored and watched everytime he takes a breath. He would be good for the game, he would be good for ticket sales, and hopefully more tickets being sold would mean bigger payroll. I think being a fan like BC, he knows the results would out weight the negative feedback from bring him in. I say give him a chance to right his wrongs and prove himself. If steriod users get 3 strikes, why not Pete?
