Pete Rose would love to meet Rob Manfred

Rob Manfred makes a lot of money, but there are some things he has to deal with that I’d not wish on my worst enemy. From Bob Nightengale’s latest:

Rose badly wants to talk to new Commissioner Rob Manfred and state his case . . . “I wish I could tell that I know what he’ll do,” Rose tells USA TODAY Sports, “but I’ve never met him. I’ve never seen him.

“But I’d love to talk to him.”

Manfred has spent the first few weeks of his commissionership talking to every single media outlet that asks for his time. Really, if you put out hardcore punk ‘zines in the late 80s, you probably got a sit-down with Manfred some time recently. I’d bet a great deal of money, however, that Rose doesn’t make it onto Manfred’s agenda any time soon.
