    Re: Pete just said he thinks Tracy Jones juiced

    First rule you have to remember about 'ol Pete: What's in it for Pete?

    The more attention the 'roids get, the better he looks in comparison, crime-wise.

    Baseball brawls are so comical. Back in the day, Tyrus Cobb met an umpire under the bleachers for a real scrap. Instead of fining and suspending them, they should make them really go at it one on one. That would be better punishment for the affair.

    Not that I'm a Tracy Jones fan but consider the source.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Well, the source still has more hits than anybody that ever played the game and was inside those Reds clubhouses on a daily basis when Jones played. He might have a idea about the situation. Certainly wouldn't be a surprise if it were true.

    B/c for a national show, if Pete says somebody juiced and the person is Tracy Jones, 95% of america says "who?"
    No stunt. We were told not to play the clip.

    Johnny Bench Night (I was there). Full game video. Love you tube

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    It just seems to fit the profile too much. I have no proof obviously.
    i've long thought the same thing since i first learned about steroids and Jose Canseco when iwas a teen. though to be fair, 'roids would have had no effect on his frostbite incident (which if he had half a brain, would not have come up).

    Tracy Jones has always loved the sound of his own voice.

    No, but Pete has been known to be untruthful in the past so his credibility isn't real strong.

    This story should be used as an excuse for umpires and players to have a gun duel in a parking garage in modern times.

    I agree...I am so tired of Pete Rose and his mouth. When he was on the diamond he was and exciting to see...off the field, I even made my grandmother turn off the Bob Braun Show.
