Rose had this to say in his conversation on the podcast with Eli Zaret, Bob Page and former Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain — suspended in 1970 by Major League Baseball for his ties to gambling — about whether the legalization of sports gambling in 17 states and counting will help Rose's National Baseball Hall of Fame chances:

The dismal fundraising effort puts Messam in last place of the major Democratic candidates who have announced.

Giamatti announced Cincinnati Reds Manager Pete Rose is banned for life from baseball for gambling on his own team, and that He also wrote he was not convinced that the betting sheets Janszen had proved Rose bet on baseball. Starting with that first two-day meeting in February 1989

"I'm not bitter at all but ... I'm not gonna get on your show or anybody else's show and b**** about not being in the Hall of Fame. I'm the one who screwed up, I'm the one that's gonna live with it. Realistically, guys, me betting on my own team to win — which I did back in the '80s — cost me $100 million. I mean that's what it cost me. Because I'd have been managing the Reds for 30 years at three or four million (dollars) a year. And all the off-field stuff I'd have gotten. For people who say I haven't been punished enough, they don't know what the hell they're talking about. But I'm a perfect example: Don't break the rules, you're going to suffer the consequences. I'm done with it, OK. Because I know I have no chance to go into the Hall of Fame until I die. And that's fine. Because I'm the one that made the mistake. I don't know how Denny feels about his situation but baseball's always looked at gambling different than drugs or spouse beating or alcohol. They've always looked at that different than they did gambling. I know what happened in 1919. You know what happened in 1919. This is 2019. It's a lot different out there today than it was. ... I've been a part of almost every Hall of Famer that's gone into the Hall of Fame since '69 — either played with him or played against him. So just like Denny, I have an idea of what the guys in the Hall of Fame did or didn't do. But I'm not worried about that because I'm gonna say this guy did that and I should be in the Hall of Fame because I did this. Because, you know, I just got tied up with the wrong commissioners. Bart Giamatti — he was a good guy. He did what he had to do. Then the next guy wouldn't do anything because of Bart Giamatti. Now this new guy, he won't do anything because of the other commissioners. It's like you can't step on the other commissioners that made a decision ... and that's the situation I'm in. You know, I'll admit to you guys I bet on my team. I bet on them every night to win. That's how much confidence — and I was wrong. That's the confidence I had in my players. You know, it was wrong. But I tried to do everything every night to win the damn game. That's what you do as a manager. You try to win every frickin' game within the rules. And I was wrong and I wish I hadn't did it but I did."

McLain suggested on the podcast that he and Rose should file a lawsuit because "if (gambling) is gonna be legal, everything else you and I ever done in our life should be wiped clean."

Last year, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred insisted that legalized sports gambling wouldn't change his thinking at all with regard to Rose.

Last month, recently retired radio voice of the Reds Marty Brennaman said the "Hall of Fame will never be whole until the day comes that Pete Rose is in it," adding that Brennaman's "biggest fear is that one day, (Rose) will be in it, but he will be elected after he is no longer with us."
