    Jun 16, 2011, 6:02 PM EDT

    Pete Rose jacket

    The San Francisco Chronicle posted a quick interview with Pete Rose on Thursday, in parge part to get his reaction to the Buster Posey collision and injury (click on the link if you want to read about that).  Rose, though, was also asked about steroids and had a pretty good take: I’m not the one…

  2. Pete Rose wants to be able to enjoy the Hall of Fame while he’s alive

    May 27, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    Pete Rose

    Pete Rose was on 97.5 in Philly yesterday and was asked if he suspects that he’ll be inducted into the Hall of Fame after he’s dead.  His response: “Well I think that would probably to be honest with you piss a lot of people off if that’s the way it was. I mean it’s just…

  3. Pete Rose wants to manage again

    May 14, 2011, 11:36 PM EDT

    Pete Rose

    This might be even less likely than Ned Yost becoming an astronaut. As the keynote speaker Saturday at the Ohio Justice & Policy Center Gala (trust us, if you have a chance to go once in your life, do so), Pete Rose said he still hopes to manage a major league team. The 70-year-old Rose,…

  4. And now another edition of “Pete Rose wasn’t as bad as steroids users” theater

    Apr 15, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Rose horizontal

    You knew this was coming, because it’s trotted out by someone whenever a big steroid user is in the news for something. This time it’s Paul Daugherty of SI regurgitating the semi-annual “Why should Pete Rose be punished more than steroids users” column. Which is fine as far as subject matter goes, because I think…

  5. Photo of the Day: Pete Rose looks great

    Apr 1, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Ring! Ring! Pete Rose: Hello? Bud Selig: Pete, it’s Commissioner Selig. How are you? Rose: Awful. Because I’m Pete Rose and my very existence is borderline pathetic. Selig: That’s great, Pete. Hey: I got some good news and some bad news. Rose: Shoot. The Hit King is listening. Selig: The good news is that we’ve…

    Mar 4, 2011, 9:33 PM EDT

    Pete Rose

    According to the Associated Press, court documents say that MLB’s all-time hit king Pete Rose has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years. Rose, who turns 70 years old in April, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Rose and his second wife, Carol, were married in 1984. They started…

  7. Quote of the Day: Pete Rose

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Pete Rose

    This has nothing to do with anything important, but I feel it’s worth sharing.

  8. So, Pete Rose and two franchise cornerstones walk into a bar in Las Vegas …

    peterose-girlfriend-091111-thumb-550x374-3997

    If you run the Rockies or the Rays, how happy are you to hear that a gossip sheet is running a pic of Troy Tulowitzki and Evan Longoria standing next to Pete Rose in Las Vegas? I’m sure it was all innocent, but if you put it just the right (or wrong) way, it has…

  9. Pete Rose to manage in the minor leagues

    Dec 20, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    Pete Rose Jr.

    Oh, sorry. Missed the “Jr.” after his name in the story. Much too busy to go back and make that headline more accurate, however. So many things to get done before Christmas! Pete Rose Jr., the son of the career hits leader who is banned from baseball, will run a rookie league team of the Chicago…

  10. Pete Rose would like to tell you something about Joe DiMaggio

    Dec 9, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Joe DiMaggio

    So, Pete Rose and Joe DiMaggio are in the jungle in Vietnam, and DiMaggio decides he needs to take a shower … No, that’s not the intro to a joke.  It happened. Pete Rose said it did.  And even though it’s a true story and not a joke, it does have some punchline.  Why Pete…

  11. Pete Rose on the Hall of Fame: “Don’t wait till I’m dead”

    Oct 22, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Rose horizontal

    Pete Rose sat down for another interview, and he has this to say about the Hall of Fame: I would hope that I’d get a second chance. Don’t wait till I’m dead. The Hall of Fame is for family and friends. I’d like to get up there in front of them. He also says, however,…

  12. Breaking: Pete Rose is sorry

    Oct 19, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    Rose horizontal

    Pete Rose pops up every couple of months to say this, and far be it from me to ignore it when he says it again: “I think anybody that knows me knows that I’m very sorry. I understand the mistakes I made. There’s some people that will never give you a second opportunity. That’s fine.…

  13. Ichiro Suzuki on verge of joining Pete Rose as the only players with 200 hits in 10 seasons

    Sep 13, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

    For a brief time it looked like Ichiro Suzuki’s streak of 200-hit seasons might end at nine, which is one short of the all-time record held by Pete Rose, but now he’s riding a 13-game hitting streak that includes a total of 21 hits and it looks like he’ll once again clear 200 with ease.…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
