I say yes. If we're going to judge people on what they did off the field then Ty Cobb shouldn't be in, Babe Ruth shouldn't be in, Mickey Mantle shouldn't be in, and if im not mistaken Fergie Jenkins shouldnt be in. Cobb was a murderer, Ruth and Mantle were both drunks and womanizers, and Jenkins was involved with the drug scandal during the 80's. There are countless more people that are in that didn't have great character and didn't always do things by the book and more to come. If we're going to keep him out because of betting then why should we let murderers and drunks in?

cmon you can't penalize him for something stupid he did after his playing career i mean i'm not saying he shouldn't be punished but everyone is entitled to 1 or 2 bad descisions I say yes!

To put it very simply, those are the rules. You bet on baseball, your banned. Those have been the rules since the beginnings of the game. Ban the bum forever.

At first I thought no but after reading his book it changed my mind completely. So yes Pete deserves to be in the hall

i completely agree...i does matter what he did off the field because he wanted to give up the posibility of him making hall do to stupid things...i think he was a good player but no matter what people do he gave it up

Wow, I found something we both can agree on.

You're 100% right on this. Besides the guy deserves the HoF more than anyone who isn't on it. He's broke and I feel pity for the guy. He'll probably getting once he's dead and a new generation of voters come in.

I agree with what Rose did was wrong and he should be in the Hall but being a womanizer and a drunk isn't at all bad...
It's not against the law? MLB law to say the least...

What Ruth and Mantle did was BS compared to what Rose did. Mantle if I'm not mistaken wrote about a few moonshots he hit while being drunk or hungover. WTH is wrong with that, just added to his badboy image. Harmless IMHO
