My Prison without Bars

My Prison Without Bars - Pete Rose This book is pretty bad. It actually reduced my sympathy for him. He talks about his psychological ailments that seem phony for the most part. Mostly it is one long awful excuse for the ways he has made a hash of his own life. Sad but true. On the other hand, understanding what happened to Rose definitely casts some light on the current mess in baseball. It looks to me like people like Bonds, McGwire, and Clemens have learned from Rose's mistakes. They will deny wrongdoing all the way to the wall because they know the Hall of Fame is on the line and that if they give an inch it will be over for them.
