Poll: Would you ever want to see Pete Rose in HOF?

Pete Rose in HOF?

  1. Pete Rose in HOF?


    Just curious


  2. He should be in their. He's not the brightest bulb, but he was one hell of a ballplayer, it's deserved IMO.

  3. Yes. Along with Shoeless Joe.

  4. Yes def!!!
    The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

  5. Yep...Jackson and Rose would be two of the best ball players in the HOF...

    Rose's newer comments about how he did bet on games he managed but never against his team makes me skeptical, but he's still the 2nd best hitter in MLB history.

    And Bond WILL be in, in 6 years. 1 more year to get to 3000 hits + 5 years retired = a lot of pissy fans and a huge smile on my face.

    I'll be joining you. Steroids or not, that guy has the best swings ever.

    Best swing for homeruns, maybe...

    Look at Arod's swing though, it's much more natural.

    Nah...Arod swings like a little girl. Lets see how well it looks during the post season. Last year it was so bad I could have struck him out throwing underhand.


    I hate the yankees.

    Socks Fan?

  10. to each his own, i guess...

  11. Ok, Pete Rose not being in the HOF is a touchy subject with me. Just because of how they are punishing him for betting, however, they let guys like Strawberry and Gooden back into baseball after all their drug use.

    The best Home Run swing I've ever seen is Ken Griffey Jr's (I'm not a Reds fan btw). IMO one of the best hitters (as far as putting the ball on the field where he wants it) is Paul Molitor.

    Paul Molitor is top 5...Tony Gwynn, Suzuki Ichiro, Ted Williams, Ty Cobb all beat him out. Eddie Murray is up there too...

    I completely understand baseball's stance on Pete Rose, not that I agree with it. But he bet on baseball and that hurts the sanctity of the game much more then illicit drugs do, not matter what way you cut it.

    Last time I checked though, neither were in the Cooperstown anyway.

  13. I'd love to see Charlie Hustle in the HOF. He's the best contact hitter and players go to the HOF based on performance, not gambling issues.

    I think you're confused about what a Lifetime ban from baseball really means...

  15. Let's face it, The fact that he bet on baseball is not nearly as damaging as the fact that he lied about it for so long. After he served his time, had he admitted his faults, he would already be in. Our society seems to be forgiving when someone is contrite His numbers deserve a place in the Hall, his arrogance doesn't.

    Exactly...and his numbers are. Take a look at the records, they don't stricken his name from them.

    I can't say a disagree with any of these but if we're just talking about the look of the swing, then yes Bonds wouldnt be anywhere near the top. For me, Will Clarks swing was the best. But Bonds' swing was the most effective.

    He never even crossed my mind. I loved that guy...

    I loved watching Rafael Palmeiro's home run swing. That was a sweet swing.

    Rose's swing wasn't the prettiest, but he could put the ball where he wanted any time he wanted.

    Haha, I do own a "Yankee Hater" t-shirt.

    But I am planning on getting a "Sox Hater" as well...

    You're right, I forgot about that. I think it's funny thought that guys like Steve Howe, a.k.a "The coke machine" got so many chances despite his obvious demons but Pete Rose can't be pardoned by MLB. I get the feeling that they'd probably put Pete Rose in the HOF after he dies but they don't want him to have anything to do with baseball while he's still alive.

    I believe that if I were to wear the yankee hater shirt, I would be mobbed in about 10 minutes lol.

    I agree with that assertion...He's a pretty outspoken guy and might actually put baseball in a negative light if he were let in before that...he's battled his own alcohol deamons, his entire life.

    Not likely. Yankees fans are pussies, lol!

    Agreed...with the exception of Beelze.

  27. Only if Pete does another Maaco or Aqua Velva commercial.

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

  28. I really hope they let him in. He's not the most deserving guy, granted, but he would absolutely not be the least deserving guy enshrined.
