"Major League Baseball has created a Pete Rose purgatory, and that's where he is. And that's where he's always going to be. It's unfortunate that the commissioner's office has decided to allow that to be the reality. I don't think Pete would mind if they said 'No' to Pete. Pete wants them to go one way or the other and get him out of the void he's in."

"There's a lot of sad elements in that thing. It was sad that Pete bet on baseball. It was sad that Pete thought he could get away with it. It was sad the way he confessed, so to speak. The way the league perceived that he admitted to it was sad, and it's sad now the way baseball is handling it. It truly could be put to bed one way or the other, and I think we all sort of wish that would happen for all the parties."
