    Should he be allowed in the hall of fame? should he be allowed to manage again?

    Hall of Fame=Yes

    Manage=No, just because I don't think he would be very good at it now, after all this time away from the game.

    Since there's no proof that he bet against his team and it's only my gut instinct, I say let him in the HOF.

    But not manage. He blew that one.

    if the reds choose to hire him as manager, should baseball allow it?

    I hear your point that you made in the other thread but since there is no proof I'm for letting him in the Hall.

    I'm ambivalent about managing.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if they want to shoot themselves in the foot, I guess. I just don't think he would be very good. They let steroid users and criminals play professional sports, why not let Rose manage a team I guess.

    I wouldn't have a problem with him taking a coaching gig, hitting coach maybe.

    steroid users should be banned permanently imo. If Rose bet AGAINST the reds, I support the permanent ban.

    No hall for mr Bets.

    Besides, Mickey Mantle had the best Rose quote eva:

    "If i played my career like him i'd have worn a dress"
