Pete Rose asks for Major League Baseball reinstatement, cites Astros and steroids

Pete Rose asks for Major League Baseball reinstatement, cites Astros and steroids”

USA Today Sports is reporting that Rose and his representation sent a 19-page letter to Manfred on Wednesday, asking for his name to be removed from MLB's ineligible list.

Hinch completely ducked when the MLB Network's Tom Verducci asked whether Houston's illegal sign-stealing operation tainted the team's 2017 World Series win.

Rose, 78, has been on MLB's ineligible list since 1989 for betting on games while managing the Cincinnati Reds, following his decorated playing career.

"There can not be one set of rules for Mr". "When it comes to subsequent violations of Major League Baseball rules - namely steroid use and electronic sign stealing - this is clearly not the case. Rose and another for everyone else", they write, arguing that the rules don't "distinguish his violations from those that have incurred substantially less severe penalties from Major League Baseball".

This is the second time Rose has requested reinstatement from Commissioner Manfred.

Former commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti said in his 1989 announcement banning Rose that it would be up to Baseball Writers' Association of America voters to determine if Rose belonged in the Hall of Fame.

When the Expos traded Rose back to the Reds on August 15, 1984, he immediately became player-manager, replacing manager Vern Rapp. Rose has unsuccessfully petitioned for reinstatement on multiple occasions, with the most recent attempt occurring in 2015. Previous commissioner Bud Seilg also rejected Rose's requests for reinstatement during his tenure.

Part of Rose's argument now is that Manfred has given out lesser punishments to players whose actions affected the integrity of the games.

"There has never been any allegation that Mr". "That guiding principle has not changed, but Major League Baseball's reactions to potential threats to the integrity of the game have greatly evolved since Mr".

Now Rose, who actually had the nerve to complain publicly that Kobe Bryant's death distracted the sportds world from the Astros' scandal, has filed a petition with Major League Baseball for reinstatement. "Rose's ongoing punishment is no longer justifiable as a proportional response to his transgressions".

Last month, the Astros fired general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch after the league confirmed the team used cameras to steal pitching signs during the 2017 season.
