    Re: Rumors: Bob Castellini and Pete Rose

    The Rasputin story of baseball is that anything new to the Reds must have a Pete story behind it.

    If the Reds make th eplayoffs...it will be Rose tried to be guest of owner but refused.... has to buy own ticket.

    Rose protests by selling more of his artifacts outside GAB before, during and after the game.

    Oh, I agree. He may have his faults but he would play kids he thought were ready over vets unlike our current manager. But I don't think he'd ever accept anything less than manager.

    Re: 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."

    As much as I idolized Pete Rose when I was a kid, and how much I still consider him one of my favorite players, nonetheless I think it would be an awful move by the Reds. Pete just has this dark cloud around him that will never go away, and will thunder and rain upon everyone around him. Baseball is going through another era when it's fundamental integrity is in serious question with the arguably pervasive use of steroids. To hire someone who has lied and cheated compulsively for years will make the Reds, and by extension baseball in general, look to the public as though it has no integrity or respect for the rules.
