    Seems I'm one of the few that doesn't feel sympathy for him. Tough shit, Pete.

    If he had the least lil bit of remorse, then let him back, but that ship sailed. He fucked Giamatti/MLB on the deal they cut, then lied for 20yrs, bad mouthing MLB along the way and making assholes of the former teammates who believed and supported him. Fuck him.

    He's made far more money and fame from being banned than he would have had he been put in the HOF.

    That being said.....he should be in the HOF. He doesn't need to be reinstated to be in the HOF. They are separate entities. The problem is that all the out of touch fuckers who vote are clueless. Jack Morris should be in the HOF as well.

    I agree. Whether people hate him or love him, I can understand as it's their opinion on what he did or maybe who he is. But I will say he is one of MANY players and coaches who bet on games and their teams. He just got caught. That's not just baseball players or coaches either.

    He is a HOF player though.

    If a guy does 20 years for grand theft auto and doesn't have remorse, they still let him out of jail. They don't keep him in there because he's an asshole.

    I think the real failure of all this was the "lifetime" length of the ban. It was a much simpler time then... It was a major disgrace to the game. But times are different. WAYYYYYYY worse has gone on with the game (imo) since then, with FAR less punishments. Baseball has had to testify in front of Congress, for Pete's sake (see what I did there?:giggle:). I just think his sentance has needed to be changed to come more in line with the times.

    Voters don't matter. The people who run the HOF have said anyone on the banned list is ineligible.

    Morris deserves the HOF way more than Smoltz does.

    That's very true. Pete dug his own hole by lying. Probably because he thought he was above being busted or was pissed off for getting caught for something others do, but he should've just came out and said yeah I did it and got it over with.

    In Rose's meeting w/ Rob Manfred, where he was trying to get reinstated, Pete admitted that he still bets on baseball. What a fuckin asshole.

    It is because he's a narcissist, probably a sociopath also.

    They always want to shit on Morris for his era.....are you kidding??? He was the best pitcher of the 80's by far....and this was when steroids first started to become the norm. Besides....a 3.90 era is hardly bad.

    I'm sure he is. Probably why this whole thing has gone on for years and he dug a deeper hole. Maybe he would be in now if he came clean earlier. That, I'm against him for. The betting, no. So many do it in sports. Just don't get caught. ;)

    Pete agreed to the lifetime ban, as part of a deal where MLB would not release the Dowd report and with the provision that he could apply for reinstatement in a year and more than likely be allowed back. Another part of that deal is Pete was to keep quiet.

    As soon as the deal was done, Pete took to the media to proclaim his innocence and say MLB had no evidence. That is when the lifetime ban became real and MLB leaked the Dowd report.

    So long as a real stinking POS like Ty Cobb remains in the HOF, Charlie Hustle should not be denied.

    They do the same to Andy Pettitte w/ his ERA. He pitched 90% of his career in the AL East against the Red Sox line ups and the heavy hitting Oriole line ups early in his career. Also, Andy pitched to the scoreboard. If he had a 4run lead, whats he care if he lets up one or 2 more runs? Mariano coming in after him and giving up the game.
