    IMO if you let them in Rose deserves it too. Hope you can finally understand that.
    How about tossing Mantle out and most of the 1950's 1960's and 1970's guys out for taking greenies?

    To be honest that's the first time ive about that. My point is this : no one is perfect and many have made various mistakes...if we are going to recognize Bonds and the others for the on field play then we should do the same to Rose. T

    Yes, but their sins are not equal, which is more or less, Bagwell's point.


    Every decade of the hall of fame has a cheater in it. It's where people choose to draw the line in the sand and say 'that's wrong, and that isn't' is what becomes so controversial.

    Totally recognize what he is saying. Guess we all have a moral line that we draw and certain things mean more to various individuals.

    Personally, I think we will never know that amount of cheating that has gone on in MLB. PEDs, gambling or whatever.

    Also, I recognize "their sins are not equal" but I don't see Rose's betting on games to be any worse than the juicers. Just my opinion though.



    Side note. The part about the juicers that upsets me the most is most would have made it to the HOF without PEDs. What a waste !

    The Angels agreed to terms with righty Joe Blanton on a two-year, $15MM deal, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The deal includes a third-year option, according to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter). Blanton is represented by CAA Sports.



    Blanton, 31, posted a 4.71 ERA, 7.8 K/9, 1.6 BB/9, 1.37 HR/9, and 44.6% groundball rate in 191 innings for the Phillies and Dodgers this year. The signing raises the question as to whether the Angels' rotation is set, with Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Tommy Hanson, Blanton, and Garrett Richards, and without Zack Greinke. As Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted earlier today, the Angels could be considering signing two starters for less than what it would have cost to make a competitive bid for Greinke.

    Earlier today, the Angels fortified their bullpen by adding lefty Sean Burnett on a two-year, $8MM deal.

    Blanton hadn't been the subject of a ton of rumors so far in the offseason, but the Twins were another team known to have interest, and were said to be eyeing the right-hander as a "prime target" in Nashville.

    Joe McDonnell of FOX Sports and Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times first reported a deal was close. Photo courtesy of U.S. Presswire.

    Primer 101. Gee thanks.



    As a Manager he was able to employ his pen and his bench in an effort to win or lose games as directed by his gambling, not for the good of the team. That's vastly worse then some player juicing for 8 years in a row on his own.



    Sorry, you have failed to grasp how Rose is different from a juicer - completely - try again.

    seriously, if Pete Rose can't get in because he bet, how the hell can guys on steriods get in? That's actually cheating. i don't understand the logic. Steroids not only build strength, but they also improve hand-eye coordination which I think... I THINK, helps a lot in hitting a baseball. Pete Rose isn't allowed in, fine! But anyone ever proven to have used steriods as they were playing should also not be allowed in.

    According to who? The only thing I could find by Googling it was this terrible "article" comparing HRs, runs, and RBIs (lol) as "evidence".

    Also, if anyone wants to explain why they voted Piazza but not Clemens/Bonds I'm all ears.
    Piazza has never been formally linked to sterois use. Clemens and Bonds have been formally linked, involved in legal processes against them, and its pretty obvious they used.

    Piazza has no evidence against him besides people who just pull **** out of their *****

    It's pretty obvious Barry Lamar Bonds was HOF material long before alleged usage. Try again.
