    Too much time has passed, in my opinion. Pete Rose is still fresh in everyone's minds, most importantly, in the minds of the HOF voters.

    I don't think many people outside of baseball historian nerds are clamoring for the lift of Joe Jackson's 91 year ban from baseball.

    Well I'm not historian nerd, not for baseball anyway, but the dude did nothing to throw that series.

    Truth be told, Shoeless Joe was the first baseball player I read about and became a fan of, way back when I was in 4th grade or so. My oldest brother who's more than a brother to me, used to collect all these books and I'd read about the old ball players & so I grew to attached to Shoeless Joe. He was the first player I really learned anything about.

    With that said, I agree with you on the sentiment. I, too, feel that Joe did not help throw the 1919 series. Fellow teammates have confessed that much. And I'd love to see Joe's impact on the game commemorated the right way, more than just being a black mark on the sport some 90 years ago.

    I'd support Joe's re-instatement & I'd support Rose's, too.

    But at this point, I only see the latter happening.

    May as well. The guy gambled. With MLB turning a blind eye to all the people who blatantly cheated at the sport, vilifying a guy who bet a few times seems hypocritical.

    It's about 10 years too late for this. Unreal that he's villified for something that happened AFTER he was done playing. The fact that it's prevented him from getting in to the HOF as a player is remarkable.

    Both Rose AND Jackson need to be reinstated.
