J-Rod and P-Rose

by Dick Mac

I noticed last night that Alex "Juiced" Rodriguez is still playing baseball.

Major League Baseball has taken no action against "arguably the best player in the game," since it was revealed that he is a cheater.

J-Rod is one of hundreds of baseball players who have been cheating for a couple of decades. There are some pretty big names on the list besides J-Rod: Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettite, etc., ad nauseum.

None of them have been kicked out of the game, or "banned for life" as the industry likes to call it. No, they skip merrily along, cheaters earning millions of dollars, and planning their enshrinement.

Only Canseco has been vilified over the years, and it seems like he is the only one who has been telling the truth.

Pete Rose has been banned for life because he is a gambler. This seems like small potatoes when compared to J-Rod and crew.

Is it time to reinstate Pete Rose to the game he loves?
