As a longtime Reds fan, I was pleased to hear that Pete Rose will be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame and have his number retired.

If only baseball  would let him into Cooperstown. The Hall of Fame has always been about the numbers, not character.

If that truly is the case, then so many who are already in wouldn't be there.

Look, he may not deserve to have another active role in baseball, but you can't argue against his numbers and that's how you're measured.
