If you want to save the purity of Cooperstown keep him out.

If you suggest gambling shouldn't keep you out of Hall of Fame (Horning, Karras in NFL) then vote him in.

The choice is yours.

Now what are we going to do about the steroid users (have a room around the back of the Hall)?

In. Nobody thinks his gambling was anything but stupidity but his work ethic and skills as a player earned him a place. There is no place for personal grudges in baseball and that's all this amounts to.

What Pete got caught doing had nothing to do with his baseball skills. Those improving their skills with drugs out. Pete Rose in.

Had he been a thug, drug user, wife beater he would be in. He unfortunately had a gambling disease and baseball commissioner that was a thug. He should be IN IN IN!

This lifelong Cardinals fan says IN; the Hall is for recognizing talent ON the field.

IN - I believe he only bet when he was a manager and not a player. He was not known as a great manager but a great player. Had he never managed he would be in the hall of fame today. From my understanding, when he did bet as a manager on his own team, it was always for his team to win.

Final score:
28 - IN
9 - OUT

I'll contact Commissioner Selig and let him know what we've decided.

I hope Selig has a better grip on sports ethics than Goodell has...
