    Pete Rose Weighs in on Astros' Sign-Stealing Scandal: 'I didn't taint the game'

    https-::www.foxnews.com:sports:pete-rose-astros-sign-stealing-scandal

    “I bet on my own team to win. That’s what I did in a nutshell. I was wrong, but I didn’t taint the game. I didn’t try to steal any games. I never voted against my team. I bet on my team every night because that’s the confidence that I had in my players. And I was wrong,” Rose said.

    He has a fair point. What he did was wrong but it didn't affect the outcome of any games. What the Astros did helped them win the world series.

    Say what you will about Pete Rose's gambling problems after his playing days were over.

    But Charlie Hustle was a BALL PLAYER.

    Maybe I'm just bitter because of the Patriots but anyone who cheats in a manner that affects the outcome of games in any sport should get an immediate lifetime ban. Anything less ruins the integrity of the game.

    Pete Rose is hall worthy.

    He will be inducted one day.
