  1. Pete Rose offers yet another apology. Does it matter?

    Sep 13, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    Maybe to some people. But it shouldn’t matter to baseball. Or the Hall of Fame. Or to us.

  2. Pete Rose: be nice to the Commissioner of Baseball

    Sep 10, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    Rick Reilly asked Pete Rose what he thought about Fay Vincent’s recent statement that Bud Selig should not allow Rose to participate in a ceremony honor the 1970s Reds this weekend: “Fay Vincent’s never had a nice thing to say about me in his whole life. That’s fine with me. But he’s bashing the commissioner.…

  3. Pete Rose: Pete Rose never had a gambling problem

    Aug 31, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    I missed this when I put up the earlier Pete Rose post, but apparently Charlie Hustle sat for an extended interview with with Yahoo!’s Graham Bensinger. In it he discusses baseball stuff and gambling stuff, particularly the idea that he had a gambling addiction: “I needed something extra. I lost the edge in getting those…

  4. Pete Rose probably still has a gambling problem

    Aug 31, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    Why Pete Rose as an Expo? I dunno. Everyone forgets about that and I like to remember that kind of random garbage. Got his 4000th hit while playing for Montreal! Anyway: Back when he was suspended from baseball, Pete Rose admitted to having a gambling addiction and went through counseling.  You’ll be shocked to learn…

  5. The Reds receive permission to honor Pete Rose

    Aug 20, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    And that’s a good thing. But the fact that the Reds have to ask for permission bugs me. I know it won’t happen, but I’d like to see a limited reinstatement of the Hit King.

  6. Buy a Chevy, have dinner with Pete Rose

    Aug 6, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    I’m not sure I’m a big fan of either ends of that bargain, but feel free to judge for yourself from the video.

  7. Should we care about Pete Rose's corked bat?

    Jun 8, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Many of you have responded in the Pete Rose thread that a corked bat probably wasn’t a big deal because, as the good fellows at MythBusters (and many other researchers) have demonstrated, a corked bat doesn’t help a batter hit the ball any harder or farther or anything, and actually has some counterproductive qualities. I’ll…

  8. The story of Pete Rose's corked bat

    Jun 8, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    One of Pete Rose’s old lackeys — Tommy Gioiosa — told the world many years ago that Rose corked his bats.  Based on everything we knew about the guy at the time: that he was a risk-taker, a pathological competitor and a guy who viewed rules as something less than mild suggestions, it wasn’t hard…

  9. Quote of the Day: Pete Rose on steroids

    Apr 8, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Now, to answer your question about steroids, wouldn’t you like to ask Roger Maris how he feels about steroids? Or Babe Ruth how he feels about steroids? Or Hank Aaron, you could probably ask how he feels about steroids. Because those guys all lost records because of people who supposedly took steroids. So that’s a…

  10. Ichiro is Hall of Fame eligible (and a digression about Pete Rose)

    Apr 7, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Stuff you don’t think about very much: you have to have played in the majors for ten years to be eligible for the Hall of Fame. Doesn’t come up too often of course because it’s hard to imagine a nine-year career that would be worthy of discussion. I mean, sure, Lynn Jones may have his…

  11. Pete Rose wants his girlfriend in Playboy

    Nov 11, 2009, 8:46 PM EDT

    Forget the Hall of Fame, Pete Rose has a new, far worthier cause to throw his lobbying efforts behind. Yes, that’s right, baseball’s all-time hit king is pushing for Playboy to feature his girlfriend in a pictorial. Rose took his pitch public in an interview with KGOW in Houston (from SportsRadioInterview.com, via USA Today): “My…

  12. Revisiting Pete Rose

    Aug 26, 2009, 10:50 AM EDT

    Since it was so much fun the other day, let’s run out one more ground ball on the whole Pete Rose/reinstatement/Hall of Fame discussion. A clear majority of the 134 and counting comments to that article were in favor of Pete Rose being reinstated and voted into the Hall of Fame.  A majority of those…

  13. Mike Schmidt is wrong: 20 years is not enough for Pete Rose

    Aug 24, 2009, 10:57 AM EDT

    The best third baseman of all time is given an Associated Press column to make his case for Charlie Hustle.  The upshot (apart from merely making Rose’s case on its own merits): Bart Giamatti was a wise and compassionate man who would have eventually given Rose the benefit of the doubt:  An interesting question was posed…

  14. Bud puts the brakes on the Pete Rose reinstatement talk

    Jul 29, 2009, 10:43 AM EDT

    All of that fun we had the other day with Pete Rose seems to have petered out, as Bud Selig is now telling people that he’s not going to pardon the hit king. The Dayton Daily News’ Hal McCoy thinks that someone got played: I can sniff exactly what happened. It has happened to me.…

  15. Is Pete Rose going to get a pardon?

    Jul 27, 2009, 10:09 AM EDT

    This would be interesting: Thanks to the behind-the-scenes lobbying from some of the most influential Hall of Famers, commissioner Bud Selig is said to be seriously considering lifting Pete Rose’s lifetime suspension from baseball. The tip-off that Selig may now be inclined to pardon baseball’s all-time hit king was Hank Aaron’s seemingly impromptu interview session…

  16. A Rose By Any Other Name

    Jan 9, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Pete Rose

    There are many people in and around baseball who believe that Pete Rose should never be reinstated and should never be allowed in the Hall of Fame. They have a very strong case. 1. Pete Rose as manager of the Cincinnati Reds gambled on baseball games when he knew — fully and completely understood —…

  17. Cardinals trade David Freese to Angels for Peter Bourjos

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    bourjos getty

    UPDATE: Well, that progressed from rumor to trade in a hurry. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Angels have traded center fielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk to the Cardinals for third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas. Obviously the Angels are betting that Freese will bounce back following a down…

  18. Cardinals will keep Trevor Rosenthal in the bullpen

    Nov 4, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Trevor Rosenthal

    Carlos Martinez will get a chance to compete for a spot in the Cardinals’ rotation next spring, but fellow hard-throwing young right-hander Trevor Rosenthal will remain in the bullpen. Mike Matheny announced that Rosenthal will enter 2014 as the Cardinals’ closer after thriving in that role down the stretch and into the playoff this year.…

  19. The overturning of the Pete Kozma play last night was a preview of the upcoming challenge replay system

    Oct 24, 2013, 7:41 AM EDT

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    Watching the umpires overturn Dana DeMuth’s awful call on the would-be double play ball dropped by Pete Kozma last night made me wonder about the upcoming expanded instant replay system. Hearing Joe Torre talk about it with Ken Rosenthal a couple of innings later made me wonder even more. My biggest takeaways from it are…

  20. Your overwrought anti-A-Rod prose of the day

    Oct 22, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    This from Peter Botte of the New York Daily News: As Cashman gave a lukewarm welcome back to his tarnished star, Rodriguez was in sunny Miami for some undeserved R & R. Clad in black shades and a black baseball cap that did little to hide his crushed ego, vanity and pride, A-Rod came to…

  21. Now Ken Rosenthal is piling on the Red Sox

    Aug 17, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Ken Rosenthal

    Apparently FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal wanted a piggy-back ride. Rosenthal is the best breaking-news MLB reporter around right now, but he has absolutely nothing new to offer in his column Friday firing off one-liners at the Red Sox… Spoiled, overpaid, underperforming children who should be seen and not heard. Pedroia was Francona’s pet (for good reason)…

  22. Ken Rosenthal thinks Ozzie Guillen should be suspended for 30 days

    Apr 9, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Miami Marlins

    Ken Rosenthal tackles the Ozzie Guillen/Fidel Castro dustup and, early on, says this: I normally cringe at politically correct overreactions, particularly in response to mindless, preposterous remarks from people who are just spouting off. But … So you can guess where that’s going: a politically correct overreaction. Rosenthal calls Guillen’s Castro comments “about as extreme and…

  23. Peter Bourjos will likely need hip surgery after the season

    Feb 27, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos made certain to say that he’s currently feeling “good, normal, 100 percent” but the Angels center fielder also said today that he’ll likely need hip surgery after the season. Bourjos told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times that he would’ve had the operation to repair labrum fraying during the offseason, except he…

  24. Meanwhile, in an alternate universe where the Barry Bonds prosecution was “a triumph” for the prosecution

    Dec 19, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    lawsuit gavel

    ESPN’s legal expert Lester Munson has been in love with the Barry Bonds prosecution for several years now. Specifically, the Barry Bonds prosecutors as well as the feds behind the BALCO investigation. And it has led to some pretty wacky analysis of that case on his part. He was wildly incorrect about earlier evidentiary rulings.…

  25. Angels won’t be willing to move Peter Bourjos

    Dec 11, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Peter Bourjos

    The Angels have seven players for the three outfield spots and DH in the wake of the Albert Pujols signing, but they’re not going to consider trading Peter Bourjos, GM Jerry DiPoto said. “Peter Bourjos is a guy we’re going to hold,” Dipoto told FOXSports.com. “He’s one of the better defenders in the league, a 0-to-3 (in years…
