Gambling has become more and more acceptable in society in light of the Supreme Court decision to strike down the 1992 law that prohibited sports betting in many states. In light of this, and Major League Baseball getting into bed with MGM Resorts, it’s time to welcome back Pete Rose into Baseball’s good graces.
When we pull out the winter coats and see our heating bills rise, the Baseball Hall of Fame announcement is soon to follow. This year is year 7 of 10 for Roger Clemens. This is a man with 7 Cy Young awards and 354 wins. So why isn’t he in the Hall Of Fame right now?
We all know the answer to that question. His PED use. Or his alleged PED use. That story is so overdone and convoluted I’m not going to dive into it here. Instead I’m going to go through a Red Sox fan’s journey to acceptance of The Rocket.

Kelly had an indelible stamp on the 2018 team. He started the year by blowing game 1. He became Jim Buchanon and started a Joe Kelly Fight Club faze when he called out Tyler Austin of the Yankees. Then he became an afterthought and albatross around the neck of the bullpen as the summer dragged on.
But then, in the playoffs, the mid-bullpen became a strength, because he became a strength. In six innings in the World Series he had a 0.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts. That is domination.

The news that Mookie Betts could play at second base is percolating in the World Series buildup. It’s thrilling, exciting, and fascinating to think about. Could Mookie play second when the World Series moves to Chavez Ravine?
