Should Pete Rose be on the ballot?

I know Pete's not on the real HOF ballot, but no one said we have to adhere strictly to that policy.

My two cents is he deserves an up or down vote. I'd want him on the ballot and then I'd choose not to vote for him. It would be interesting to see how Reds nation feels about the guy. My guess is there's a lot less kneejerk homerism than outsiders might expect, especially from we here at RedsZone (because we set a higher standard don't you know).

I think the paltry vote Mark McGwire got shows us to be a discerning bunch.

Anyway, I thought I'd toss it out there. Might as well include the Black Sox in the discussion as well. Do Shoeless Joe, Eddie Cicotte and Buck Weaver deserve a place on the ballot?
