Say what you want, but Pete Rose definitely belongs in the Hall of Fame. Right off the bat, I can think of 4,256 reasons why. Yes, the guy is a con artist and an egotistical jerk, but if you count off-field behavior as a determining factor into Cooperstown, then Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth don't belong there either. Some say he should be kept out of the Hall strictly because he bet on the game as a manager. I say that being banned from the game for life is punishment enough. Besides, Gaylord Perry, a HALL OF FAMER, takes a lot of pride in telling people that he used vaseline to doctor the ball during his ENTIRE career. The arguments used by critics to keep Rose from the Hall are not as severe as some of the things done by other players who currently have their own plaque in Cooperstown. So, it's time to give Charlie Hustle his own plaque alongside all of the other baseball legends. However, due to gambling on the game, Rose should NEVER be allowed back into baseball as a manager, coach, scout, or any other position.

That's a tough one, but the way I see it, deliberately blowing the World Series is a lot more serious than anything Pete Rose has done. Based on that, I'd lean towards keeping Shoeless Joe out of Cooperstown. I'm not too familiar with his career numbers, though I believe that Ted Williams lobbied for years to get him into the Hall. This issue will probably be debated longer than the steroids issue.
