Pete Rose was known throughout his career for his hard-nosed style of play, so when it comes to unwritten rules, he’s not listening. Rose recently sat down for an interview Grantland, and he touched on a number of topics, including baseball’s unwritten rules, which seem to come to light for various reasons each season. Whether it’s throwing at hitters, bunting during a no-hitter or taking an extra base with a big lead, there’s always something that ruffles the feathers of those who consider such “rules” to be sacred. Leave it to Charlie Hustle to tell it like it is. “I used to get screwed when we had a seven- or eight-run lead, because I couldn’t bunt for a single or I’m ‘showing up the opposition,’” Rose reportedly said. “Guys that are home run hitters can continuously just swing from their ass and trot around the bases,” he continued. “I remember one time we had a 7-1 lead in the sixth inning in Houston, and J.R.

  • I just wish Rose would go away already and face the facts. Listen carefully Petey Boy.....You are NEVER getting into the Hall of Fame, NEVER!!!!!....Did I say NEVER!!!!! He lied for more than a decade that he NEVER, (theres that word again), bet on baseball. And when he realized that tact was'nt working he finally admitted what he NEVER, (wink, wink ;), admitted before....that he DID BET ON BASEBALL!!!! Now I am not saying that Rose is not a Hall of Fame caliber player, he is, his hit record will NEVER, (damn, there it is again), be broken. He was one of the greatest players in the history of the game. If I was starting a team and could pick an All Time Greatest roster, Pete would be one of my 25 players selected. But the facts still remain, if you bet on the game you will NEVER,( :-) ), enter the Hall Of Fame...NEVER!!!!......Did I say NEVER!!!? What he did on the field has zero bearing on the FACT that he bet on the game of baseball.
