Pete Rose, who has been banned from baseball since August, 1989, will not be reinstated, MLB announced today.  You can read the full release from MLB, with the explanation of their decision, here.

Among other juicy tidbits, it appears that Rose, who was banned for betting on baseball as a manager (and who reportedly also bet on baseball as a player) is still betting on baseball, which doesn't seem like a good idea if you are trying to get reinstated after you've been banned.

Just out of curiosity, I decided to put a poll up, asking you, the LSB readers...should Pete Rose be reinstated?
