OTP - 2016 February 8: There’s baseball, politics … and real problems

Instead of wasting the time and effort thinking about baseball, wouldn’t it be more productive for our elected representatives to concern them with one of this state’s biggest problems? Water quality.

How many cities and towns have problems like the lead levels found in Sebring, Ohio? And how many draw their water supplies from lakes containing massive amounts of toxic algae, like Toledo and Celina?

Conservation groups around the Great Lakes region are calling for states to become more active in cleaning up lakes, especially those used for drinking water. As one group told the governor of Michigan, they’re tired of reading about plans; they want to see some action.

Pete Rose to be inducted into Reds Hall of Fame

Pete Rose is going into the Hall of Fame.

No, Rob Manfred hasn’t had a change of heart. The all-time hits leader will be honored as a member of the Reds Hall of Fame.

“Inducting Pete into the Reds Hall of Fame will be a defining moment in the 147-year history of this storied franchise,” team president Bob Castellini said Tuesday (via WXIX-TV) in a prepared statement. “He is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Reds uniform and it will be an unforgettable experience watching him being honored as such.”...

A ceremony to honor Rose is scheduled to take place during the 2016 Reds Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, June 24-26.

This will tarnish the great institution that houses Chris Sabo!

Pete Rose to Remain Barred by Baseball, Sources Say

It was a sucker’s bet.

Rob Manfred, the commissioner of Major League Baseball, has decided not to lift the permanent ban imposed on Pete Rose more than a quarter-century ago, meaning the player with more hits than anyone else in the sport’s history will continue to be kept out of the Hall of Fame.

The decision by Mr. Manfred, who succeeded Bud Selig as commissioner last January, has not been publicly announced. But three people familiar with the decision, speaking on condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a matter that was supposed to remain confidential, said that Mr. Manfred had made up his mind to keep the ban intact.

Mr. Manfred’s decision comes less than three months after he met with Mr. Rose, 74, at Major League Baseball’s headquarters on Park Avenue in Manhattan.

Inside Baseball: No chance Pete Rose is reinstated; plus more MLB news - CBSSports.com

I’m happy Rose isn’t part of the broadcast crew because he was dreadful. That he left to sign autographs says everything you need to know about Pete.

Word is, he thinks he has a very good chance to be reinstated by Major League Baseball, and thinks he might even manage again at the big-league level. In reality, reinstatement is the biggest long shot Pete’s ever backed.

Pete Rose no longer part of Fox Sports’ coverage team

He can apply for reinstatement to the FOX sports coverage team in one year.

Pete Rose is done photobombing on Fox Sports — at least until next season.

That’s right, Rose will no longer appear on Fox Sports’ pre- and postgame coverage of the World Series, host Kevin Burkhardt announced after the Mets’ 9-3 rout of the Royals in Game 3.

“This is the best October I’ve had since 1980 when I won my last World Series,” Rose said. “Thanks, guys. Thanks, Fox.”

Baseball’s all-time hits leader joined Fox Sports in May, appearing on multiple shows, including “MLB Whiparound,” “America’s Pregame” and “Fox Sports Live.”

Pete Rose videobombs, swivels during rain delay

If there is a worse analyst than Pete Rose, I haven’t seen him. Who picks the studio hosts on FS1?
