If Rose was barred for mere gambling as a manager ( and not against his own team), how does one justify not banning steroid users?
Maybe they should build an annex at Cooperstown shaped like a hypodermic needle and have a special steroid HOF section.
Rose signed a LIFETIME ban so he knew what he was doing. Sure his play on the field was HOF worthy but if you try and screw over the sport that made you what you were, you gotta pay. Saying he didnt bet against his team so he should be in makes no sense though. By choosing to not bet on his team on certain days shows he may have totally spent his bullpen the day before on the game he did bet on at the expense of the upcoming game he wasnt gonna bet on so he was not legitimately managing each game to win.
