This is just pig-ignorant. For once, Rob Neyer and I are more or less in agreement. The question of whether or not Pete Rose bet on baseball games, or even whether or not he should be reinstated, can be argued. But anyone who thinks that "failing to hustle" is the worst transgression in baseball needs some more time in the womb. You're not done baking yet.
