Former Red Pete Rose told Dan Patrick in an interview today that he’d back Alex Rodriguez for entry into the MLB Hall of Fame. Rose, who as everyone knows is ineligible himself for inclusion on a Hall of Fame ballot due to his involvement with gambling while he was manager of the Reds, also went on to (shockingly) say that steroid use is worse than gambling becasue you can affect the direct outcome of the game. Certainly can’t say that Pete isn’t an opportunist.
As for A-Rod, do you think this is about the point that you place a call to Rose and say something along the lines of “Oh hey Pete, thanks for the support, I mean really thank you. However, do you think you could refrain from every speaking about me again?”
