I see where Pete Rose is starting up an Internet page where people can write in and request that his ban from baseball be lifted. I'm all for it! The only thing "Mr. Hustle" did wrong was bet on himself.

When I think of some of the dirtbags playing today that have assaulted umpires, committed felonies and been caught not only using but dealing drugs more than once and are not banned, it makes me want to puke. They get a slap on the wrist and a fine that doesn't really even dent their multi-million $ salaries.

Why aren't they banned? Is it because they are too big of a box office draw? I say lift the ban on Pete, and get him in the hall of fame where he belongs. DAN BLAINE
