That Eric Show Christmas Album You Never Knew You Wanted

Eric Show never wanted to be become a footnote to baseball history. But, thanks to two pitches…he did. On September 11, 1985, while with the San Diego Padres, Show would surrender Pete Rose’s record-breaking 4192nd career hit. Then, two years later, it was an errant 90-mile-per-hour fastball that caught future Hall of Famer Andre Dawson in the face and the vicious bench-clearing...

Rose: I’m like a ‘stockbroker guy’ with sports gambling

Pete Rose held a press conference on Tuesday to discuss MLB commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision to not reinstate him. As expected, he was asked about his gambling habits and offered no apologies. Rose, who was fittingly speaking from Las Vegas where he lives and works, claims he has gotten his gambling under control over the past three decades. “I’ve worked hard at it,...

Why Pete Rose belongs in Cooperstown, warts and all

Pete Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame. On Monday, Commissioner Rob Manfred officially upheld Rose’s lifetime ban from Major League Baseball, which includes the Hall of Fame. It’s unfortunate because again, Pete Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame. Actually, let’s get this one right. Pete Rose belongs in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, but not for anything that...

Pete Rose should have been honest from the start about gambling on baseball

Have you ever caught someone in a lie, presented them with clear evidence they’re not telling the truth, only to have them deny it over and over again? It doesn’t matter how many exhibits of evidence you present, or how convincing your logic, you get nothing but one denial after another. Over time, perhaps years later, the guilty party may partially change their story, but it’s...

Wash, Rinse, Re-Pete: Why I’ve Just Stopped Caring About Pete Rose’s Reinstatement

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has proven in his nascent tenure as baseball’s boss that he’s willing to be progressive. He’s openly discussed potential changes to the strike zone and recently announced a deal to stream in-network games in half of the league’s markets. He even allowed one Peter Edward Rose to attend the All-Star Game […]

Pete Rose told Rob Manfred he still bets on baseball

If there is a more tone deaf former athlete than Pete Rose, you’d have to let me know who it is. MLB on Monday announced that Rose’s appeal to be reinstated by the league was denied. Rose, 74, was appealing a ban that was issued against him in 1989 for betting on baseball games while managing the Cincinnati Reds, including games of his own team. He continued to deny for years...

We have nobody to blame but ourselves for the First Take plague

We’ve spent enough keystrokes over the years to write a Stephen King novel with all of the horror produced by ESPN’s ghoulish sports debate show First Take.  It is without doubt the worst sports show that has ever been made, and I’m talking all the way from actual sports shows to Pete Rose’s reality show to that one time they tried to make George Costanza play the life...

I’m sure many would agree that the appearances of Ken Griffey, both Junior and Senior...

That meant the best players played most, if not the entire game. Rose routinely got four at-bats when...
