Pete Rose will bet you $200 bucks that he gets into the Baseball Hall of Fame

“Come on you suckers! Who wants some of this sweet action?” Pete Rose yells from the corner of 7th and Walnut Street in downtown Cincinnati.

Yes, Pete Rose is betting again, it would seem.

With Major League Baseball hosting it’s annual All Star Game festivities in the Queen City this week; there were many that thought this could be a time of healing the broken relationship between Rose and the game that he played so well.

We all know the story about how Rose was given permanent ineligibility from baseball for accusations that he gambled on games while both playing and managing.

For years Rose vehemently denied all accusations and maintained his innocence.

In 2004 Rose finally admitted to betting on baseball games as well as other sports while managing the Reds but insisted that he only bet on his own team.

On June 15, 2015 ESPN concluded an investigation that determined that Rose had indeed bet on baseball while still playing as well.

Now it seems that Rose will just bet on anything.

“I bet you that you can’t find a place to park!” He yells at a driver passing by slowly.

“I’ve got 10 to 1 odds that this lady just had Botox!” he screams at another.

“People think I will never make the National Baseball Hall of Fame but I’ve got $200 right here that says I will!”

MLB to consider switching from games to Home Run Derbys

Major Leage Baseball Comissioner Rob Manfred made some news on Sunday when he announced that MLB may consider forgoing traditional games in favor of Home Run Derbys.

home run derby

“The fact is that people tune in for the Home Run Derby.” Manfred states. “It is the most watched baseball event that we have. I mean have you seen our viewer statistics? People would rather watch Food Network reruns than watch a World Series Game 7. I mean, the games are boring. We know that. We have tried to spice it up but there’s only so much we can do.”

Last season the Home Run Derby was delayed because of rain yet still managed to draw 5.4 million viewers. Whereas a Sunday Night Baseball game is averaging around 1.2 million viewers each week.

“We see that our audience demographic is changing.” Manfred continued. “Our average viewer is over 50 years of age and we need to try to attract the younger fans. So from now on, let’s just let them see what they want.”

Would the new format cheapen the game?

“I have heard critics say that it would “cheapen the game” by just focusing on home runs but that’s ridiculous. Major League Baseball has never just focused on home runs. And we never will. We would never stoop to that level. This is America’s pastime. We just want to get it back to where it once was.”

“But remember Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa? Oh man, those were good times.”

2015 MLB All-Star Game rosters released

Major League Baseball has announced it’s rosters for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game as voted by fans, players and designated managers. The game will be played in Cincinnati for the first time since 1988 and the Kansas City Royals wil have a league high six represenatives. Blah blah blah…you are now just going to scroll down to the rosters because you could care less what I have to say here. But I am going to change some names and see if you notice. And then in a few minutes you’re going to scroll back up and say “what is this all about? These aren’t even the right names! What is going on?” Well you should have just read this to begin with and saved yourself the trouble. Stop being a rebel and follow some rules you scallywag.
