Pete Rose....... go the f*** away......

Man...... Fuck this guy.

Seriously. Every time I see him my head hurts. He's the only ex-player I ever see who acts, and speaks to others, as if he and his accomplishments are bigger than the game itself.

If Tony LaRussa could hit, he'd be Pete Rose......except Tony LaRussa is more humble. Hank Aaron comes across as a humble guy. Mickey Mantle in interviews was always pretty affable. Pete Rose is a fucking dick. Seriously, he's part of the studio group commenting on the MLB playoff for FS1, and TBS. He talks over Frank Thomas, Raul Ibanez, and Alex Rodriguez regularly like he's the only one whos opinion matters.

He looks like a casino pit boss. Appropriate considering he's been banned from baseball for life for betting on the game.

Fuck this guy.
