Everyone who is against Pete Rose being admitted is getting soft on allowing Rose in the Hall. Liberal Rob Neyer proposes that Rose be allowed in and that a heretofore unmade distinction be made between betting on your team and betting against it.
Neyer argues that having the Pete Rose issue unresolved is a problem for Major League Baseball. The problem Rob is that it was resolved by Bart Giamatti. No one seems willing to let this be resolved, but rather wants to feel sorry for a man who chose to ruin his own career.
