I've said for decades that if Pete had just cooperated with the first investigation, he'd had been in the hall for 20 years by now. He fought it, lied and denied it for so long that he put himself in this spot.People usually correlate corked bats with HR's. but it could be a great asset for a single hitters as well. Pete slapped at the ball a lot, and if he was corked it absolutely could have helped him!
With that said, I dont put that in the same realm as Steroids, as steroids are illegal, or gambling of course......
He isnt making it anyways, at least while he is alive. He made his bed and now has to lay in it.
My issue with baseball and really all sports now is they are embracing gambling and i think it's an awful look for the integrity of the games. You now have networks and shows specific to gambling. Personally, the games themselves are enough to entertain me and I don't have enough money to just throw around. I think you will start seeing gambling scandals start to rise because it always does when money is involved.
