Pete Rose comes clean

Pete Rose finally admitted on ESPN Radio this afternoon that he bet on baseball, and more specifically, his own team.

ESPN ran a poll asking viewers should he be reinstated in Major League Baseball? Amazingly, nearly 70 percent voted yes.

Why? The man openly admits his guilt, after years of denying he bet on the sport, and now fans are ready to embrace him back.

If that's the case then reinstate Shoeless Joe Jackson from the 1919 White Sox scandal. Some of the "evidence" against Shoeless Joe was circumstantial at best, and yet the man hasn't been cleared.

Rose may feel like he's cleaned his slate by his admission and ready for Major League Baseball to welcome him, but he's signed his own pass to baseball purgatory.
