I imagine this day, Veterans Day, is in some respects like any other day for the parents who have lost their children at war. There are mothers and fathers who refuse to cry in public but who, at night, alone with their pillows, will do their crying.

Baseball's All-Star Game is being played in Cincinnati, and new MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has allowed former Reds player Pete Rose to participate. He even said he'll review Rose's case, to see if the all-time hits leader should be reinstated. Here are 10 dumb arguments in favor of Rose.

Pete Rose, The St. Louis Cardinals and the Need for Consistent MLB Ethics Policies

The newest revelations about Pete Rose betting on baseball, something that had long been suspected is a sad coda to a sad story about one of baseball's all time greats. Rose's efforts to finally make it to the Hall of Fame had been getting some traction earlier in the year, but that has changed now.

June 5 was a big day for me. The Tuttle Tots 3K in Carrollton, Kentucky was the first time I had been in a running race in 26 years, and I came in second in my age division. The day before, I had a medical checkup that confirmed that I had lost over 90 pounds in the past six months.

The Fallacy Behind High-Stakes Testing

Whether you call it Valued-Added (VAM), Accountability, or Assessment, testing is not about learning. It is about sorting kids out, punishing teachers, schools, and communities, and denying deeper social inequality and injustice.

Deflategate Ruins Tom Brady's Reputation, Permanently

Take away Deflategate, and Tom Brady finds himself in the conversation for greatest quarterback of all time. Of course, if you take away the steroid controversy, Barry Bonds is your unquestioned home run king, and Alex Rodriguez would likely be on his way to catching him.

Now is the Time to Reinstate Pete Rose

Pete Rose continues to feel that he has been unfairly treated by the baseball establishment, and I believe that with an expanded lens of the changing culture regarding athletes' transgressions, perhaps leniency in his case is now in order.

Saying Goodbye (?) to Ichiro Suzuki

I've been watching baseball pretty avidly since I was 8 (more than 35 years now, horrifying as that is to type). And while Ichiro may not have been the best player I've ever seen (he rarely walked or hit with power), I think he's been my favorite player to watch.

Looking Back at Bart Giamatti, Pete Rose and the Baseball Ferry

Baseball did indeed break my heart in 1989, the year that Giamatti, a Renaissance scholar and former president of Yale, died of a heart attack just days after banning Pete Rose from the national pastime.

Let Pete Rose Back Into Baseball

Steve Siebold | Posted 08.18.2014 | Sports
Steve Siebold

We live in the United States of America, a country known for its second chances. It's time we give Pete Rose his second chance for all the memories he gave us. Twenty-five years is long enough. Bud Selig needs to do the right thing, step up to the plate and remove the ban.

Removing the collision at home plate, takes a tactic away from base runners with the intention of making the game safer, but it does not change the overall dynamic or balance of the game.

Why Aren't Younger Americans More Enamored With Baseball?

Tom Cramer | Posted 12.19.2013 | Fifty
Tom Cramer

I love baseball. I almost wrote I still love baseball, but that's unnatural. That comes from a discussion I heard on sports radio this spring. The announcers were all giddy with anticipation, save the 20-something NBA reporter. He claimed most of his generation remained unbitten by the baseball bug, only interested in the NBA and NFL. I was first stunned, then saddened.

Baseball, Steroids and Cowardice

Lincoln Mitchell | Posted 10.26.2013 | Sports

The PED issue, which has now dogged baseball for well over a decade, has been exacerbated by an appalling lack of courage on the part of nearly everybody involved. Cowardly denials, insincere apologies, failing to take responsibility and efforts to scapegoat individuals.
