The report used informant testimony and supporting documents to provide a detailed portrait. Mitchell described the long-term event as "baseball’s steroids era".  The New York Times, December 14, 2007
1.) The resolution that I prefer for baseball's steroid problem is:
A ban for life of all players who ever used steroids with no chance for reinstatement once they are proven beyond reasonable doubt to have used steroids. A ban for life of all players proven to have ever used steroids & removal from all record books for all players who used steroids. Forget about the whole thing since every one does stuff like that sometime during his life.

Pete Rose Survey
I fooled you, you fools. Sosa Breaking His Bat For The ??? Time
-- Pete Rose in 1989:  "I never bet on baseball."
-- Pete Rose in 2003:  "I did," to ABC News' Charles Gibson.
     "That was my mistake for not coming clean a lot earlier."
 
1. USA Today, December 10, 2002:   "Pete Rose, banned from baseball since 1989 for illegal gambling, is close to being reinstated.  The all-time hits leader could be on the Hall of Fame ballot next December and back in baseball in some capacity by 2006 if ongoing negotiations with Commissioner Bud Selig are successful. Should Pete Rose be allowed back in the game/business/culture of baseball?

Yes, even though he has lied ever since 1989 about his gambling.
No -- Because even though he could play well, he also lied and continued to lie for over 13 years, gambled, broke the rules, and sports should be played by rules and consequences.

2.  In order to get re-instated, Pete Rose must sign a confession about his gambling.  That will verify that he did gamble and lied about it for 13 years.  Do you think that after re-instatement he will eventually claim that he was coerced into signing the confession and only did it for the good of baseball? Of course, why not in today's culture?
No, what would make me think that?

3. January 22, 2003:  A friend of Pete's now says that Pete is prepared to admit:

     1.)  That he did actually gamble on baseball, and,
     2.)  That he did lie about it for 13 years.

His admission that he lied for so long should in itself REALLY make him ineligible for Baseball's Hall of Fame!!!
Oh my God, did he really lie?
No, I can't believe it. He didn't lie for 13 years.  But, wait, then I wonder is he lying now?

4. Pete Rose was banned from baseball for life because: He was caught gambling
He lost his hitting ability
Vast right field conspiracy
He's a jerk
Other:

5. Pete Rose wants to be reinstated in baseball so that he can then be inducted into the Hall of Fame.  Do you believe he should be reinstated? Yes
No

6. Pete Rose allegedly placed bets on his own team and then played and managed in the games that he bet on.  Do you think that perhaps he might have adjusted the way he played in order to affect the outcome of the games? Yes
No

7. Of those on the right, who or what group does the most damage to our culture. Corporate executives, accountants, stock manipulators & under-the-table deal makers
Pete Rose
Both of these because they erode the integrity of our society and provide examples of "getting away with something crooked that we each may want to try someday."

8. Rose was asked in the ABC Primetime interview why he should be reinstated.  Pete answered: "Because I understand that I made a mistake.  And there is not a damn thing I can do about that mistake."  On January 5, 2004, Kirk Semple in USAToday, reports that Rose suggested his willingness to recognize his mistake's severity and admit to it was enough to rectify the error.  Rose said, "Fourteen years is a long time.  It's time to clean the slate, it's time to take responsibility." To Pete Rose, taking responsibility means: Saying, "Ya, I done it.  Now let's all pretend I never did do it."
Admitting to gambling and lying and then suffering no consequences.

9. If you cheated your boss and friends, lied and got away with it for 14 years, and then admitted to cheating, would you expect to have your boss accept you back into his business and your friends back into their lives as if as if you never did anything wrong? Yes
No

10. Pete Rose gambled, was caught, paid a fine.  Who and what was damaged by Pete Rose's actions? Pete Rose
The sport
His fans
Everyone who respects rules & knows right from wrong
All of the above
No one

11. Do you believe that Hall of Fame members need to be examples of good sportsmanship? Yes
No

12. Do you believe that Hall of Fame members should be good role models? Yes
No

13. Do you believe the Hall of Fame should induct anyone who plays baseball very well, regardless of his character, morals, integrity and ethics? Yes
No

14. The American Heritage Dictionary defines 'fame' as, "Great renown," "Public estimation, reputation."  Does Pete Rose's fame qualify him for the Baseball Hall of Fame? Yes
No

15. Why do people want Rose re-instated? Baseball players can be dishonest if they play well enough.
Most people don't consider gambling on your own team serious even though it breaks baseball's rules.
Most people envy others who can get away with dishonest or unethical behavior.
So many athletes are criminals, drug users, do so many low class things, that it doesn't matter if Rose gambles and lies about it..

16. Is Rose's re-instatement merely another example of our society's eroding ethical standards? Yes
No

17. Sammy Sosa's bat broke while he hit what might have been another of his famous home runs.  How many times before has Sammy used a corked bat by mistake? Never
