"I made a big mistake. It's my fault, It's nobody's else's fault," Rose said. However, he said he should be reinstated because "I'm the best ambassador baseball has." - Pete Rose
This little doozy and some comments by others in the Rose diary got me thinking. Obviously, Rose is not the "best ambassador baseball has." Regardless of your views of his HOF rights, you have to admit that he not a good ambassador for baseball. There is an innumerable number of former living players that are better ambassadors than Pete Rose (Ripken, Aaron, etc).
It would be too easy to name players that are better ambassadors than Rose. I thought it would be interesting to hear who this board thinks are actually worse living baseball ambassadors than Pete Rose.
I would like to start things off by nominating Jose Canseco for his admitted steroid use, being a jerk, hitting his wifes/girlfriends, dating Madonna, having a mullet, having a baseball card featuring himself without a shirt on (didn't need that as a kid), and profiting off of his own cheating/illegal behavior.
There is a poll with a few former players I assume will be nominated.
