He just wishes the batters had the upper hand.
“I don’t know what the problem is with hitters today,” Rose said. “Man, there are so many guys who are swinging at balls bouncing in the dirt, so many guys hitting .230, .245. It’s hard to believe that (Derek) Jeter and Ichiro (Suzuki) are both batting under .270.”
...The one issue on which Rose did not have an opinion was whether players from the steroid era ought to be excluded, like him, from the Hall.
“You have to make up your own mind on that,” he told a reporter who has a Hall of Fame ballot. “It’s going to be interesting. The luckiest guy in that group is A-Rod. You know why? By the time he’s eligible, it’s going to be 2023, and a lot of people will forget about everything.”
