Pete Rose: Astros' cheating was worse than my bets

  Pete Rose: Astros' cheating was worse than my bets Pete Rose believes that the Houston Astros' involvement in illegal sign-stealing was worse for baseball than what he did more than 30 years ago when he gambled on the sport. "I bet on my own team to win," Rose told Randy Miller of NJ.com. "That’s what I did in a nutshell. I was wrong, but I didn't taint the game. I didn't try to steal any games. I never voted against my team. I bet on my team every night because that's the confidence that I had"I bet on my own team to win," Rose told Randy Miller of NJ.com. "That’s what I did in a nutshell.

So what does this all mean? Well for starters, it means Beltran is still only guilty as a player, which means he's unlikely to receive punishment in the scandal. It also means that the Red Sox and the Astros are still the only teams that are implicated from this scandal, much to the disappointment of those respective fan bases.

Even so, the Mets are still under immense pressure with their decision about a manager who hasn't even been in the home dugout for one game. Yes the optics may look bad, especially after handing him a massive contract, but if there is no risk of punishment (such as is the case with Alex Cora) why not keep Beltran around and let him prove himself?

The Wilpons have a lot to think about.
