    Selig mulling pardon for Rose

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...pete_rose.html

    There's not a lot definite here, but the New York Daily News detects a change of heart.

    Apparently Hank Aaron and some of the HOF vets got in Bud's ear.

    I don't have a problem with Pete in the Hall. His plaque can cite his statistics, and the fact that he was banned from baseball for betting on the game. Same with Shoeless Joe, for that matter.

    I was a huge Pete fan as a kid, but I don't think he should be allowed back into the game.

    HOF eligibility and getting back in uniform on the field should not be tethered.

    You know it will be though. That's the deal Selig will make IMO.

    Exactly. He should be in the Hall, not in baseball, imo.

    Selig already offered Rose a deal where he'd get into the Hall, but remained out of baseball forever.

    Rose passed.

    I agree, he has no business being back on the field ever again.

    It's funny because I gave up years ago ever caring about the whole Rose situation but I gotta admit seeing this kinda makes me excited.

    I think it's time, but Rose needs not be managing ever again. I think Pete would rather get back in the game than be in the Hall. Just my guess. I wish he could be on the field, but I don't think it would work out too well.

    after only 12-13 years. Another 8-10 years and maybe the pen will start moving.

    What a bench/hitting coach he would make. How about advanced scout? No manager jobs, not that any team would offer, but he should have been in the hall long ago.

    Coach?

    Nope, he can't sit in a dugout on any game day IMO, he gave up his rights to that years ago.

    HOF decides who gets in not MLB

    from wiki

    Hall of Fame Eligibility
    On February 4, 1991, the Hall of Fame voted to formally exclude individuals on the permanently ineligible list from being inducted into the Hall of Fame by way of the Baseball Writers Association of America vote. Rose is the only living member of the ineligible list. Players who were not selected by the BWAA could be considered by the Veterans Committee in the first year after they would have lost their place on the Baseball Writers Association of America's ballot. Under the Hall's rules, players may appear on the ballot for only fifteen years, beginning five years after they retire. Had he not been banned from baseball, Rose's name could have been on the writers' ballot beginning in 1992 and ending in 2006.[12] He would have been eligible for consideration by the Veterans Committee in 2007, but did not appear on the ballot.[13] In 2008 the Veterans Committee barred players[14] and managers[15] on the ineligible list from consideration, more than likely ending any chance of Rose being elected to the Hall of Fame.

    If he's taken off the inelgible list then he can be voted in. I don't think Pete gets in until he's dead,JMO.

    I think he'd be an outstanding hitting coach. But I don't know if I'd trust him. It's really as simple as that.

    I do think he'd be a really good minor league and Spring Training guy. Perhaps a per diem that keeps him around the team but not an official coach? Kind of a Mario Soto for struggling hitters?

    That could be a full-time job with the Reds!
