Rose on the Mitchell Report
Pete Rose is going to be on "Sports Unfiltered with Dennis Miller" on Versus (it's a cable network) tomorrow at 10 p.m. Here's what Rose had to say about the Mitchell Report:
"The Mitchell report’s come out and I never thought anybody would make me look like an altar boy."
"If you’re gonna put these guys that supposedly did steroids into the Hall of Fame, I mean I gotta get a shot somewhere."
"I’ve been suspended 18 years for betting on my own team to win… I was wrong....but these guys today, if the allegations are true, they’re making a mockery of the game."
I think the Mitchell Report is going to keep Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds out of the Hall of Fame, unless the allegations are proven untrue. Rose's problem now is that even if he was re-instated it's up to Veteran's Committee to put him in. I don't see that happening.
