Gambling done by the general public is accepted today. Gambling done by participants in the contests themselves is still strongly frowned upon and raises obvious questions about the integrity of the games being played.In. As a player.
Prove he threw games like Joe Jackson and it's a different story. He didn't. Anybody who actually saw him play knows he gave all he had every single game and held his teammates accountable to do the same. With all the gambling that is accepted everywhere today, seems a bit over the top to hold him up as the bad boy.
In before the roids supporters bring up Bonds, Clemens, McGuire, Sosa, etc.
Schilling is not in because of his politics. So let's not paint the HOF as the paramount of baseball purity. There are some renegades and scoundrels in it already. Pete is one just like a number of others. His playing career justifies his inclusion.
