Johnny -- that's good catcher in the history of baseball that.
-- has all the records for catchers as far as offensively so.
As far as the -- -- linked to steroids.
I didn't have a vote.
You know I don't know how they came up -- With the percentages they came up with on a member of first time Mark McGwire -- on about he got 24%.
And and I was wondered did today to see if bonds and Clemens and those guys we get in the fifties.
Because if they got in the fifties that means that a couple years it probably make it to the hall of fame but -- in the thirties.
And next year as you know or may not know you got medics and you got frank Thomas and he got Jeff can't.
And you -- glad you got a lot of good nominees for next year but it's kind of -- because.
We have a lot of friends and in Cooperstown who owned stores and they kind of thrive on that week.
Hall of fame week to survive for the year and I don't know what kind of induction weekend is going to be -- -- there's no induction.
Project -- and -- reason they don't want to hit that 52% nobody else did I don't think Alyssa and my recollection and so there isn't much as it's a 52%.
How I would tell you say it's kind of sad fusion seeing my Twitter account today and Greta what am I alive when the mentioned Pete Rose.
A lot of people are very upset that Pete Rose is not in the hall of fame -- That came and tell you how how it's in my account lit up today what's your thought about -- you ever gonna get in the hall of fame.
Well I think our money ineligible list I've never been on the on the listed did receive any votes.
And I must tell you that not in the hall of fame because on the one and made mistakes on the one that screwed up and I can't sit here on your show or.
Her show on show were bill show and then complain about a -- on the one of messed up and and in my situation we just.
Live every day life and ended to have fun and try to get a second chance sometime I won't need a third -- if I ever get a second chance -- we'll see what happens as far as all things concerned.
It's just all about you and how much they're really is about the fans -- -- that she was at that World Series game in 1990 you know where they had -- The greatest players of that the twentieth century and you're one of them they brought all the players out and the fans went absolutely crazy when Pete rose's name can't -- biggest standing ovation of anybody and the fans really want to see you in -- hall families to -- -- -- how many it very few who don't.
Consummate and warning here if this isn't a little bit for the fans -- -- the fans are being cheated what do you think about that it.
I did good fan support creditors no question about that and and I think the fans understand that now I understand I've made a mistake and they're willing to give me a second chance and I think my teammates now understand it.
Did I realize I made a mistake -- They're on my side so but it's one guy's decision and -- Commissioner of Baseball Bud Selig can I probably made his job tougher over the years I probably did.
Because there's been some problems when baseball the last 1520 years but.
He's the guys in charge he can call me right now and reinstate me to -- if if that's the way he felt that.
We're still trying to contact him then who knows who knows down and down -- road you never -- never give up I never gave up as a player and I won't give up his.
Someone who wants to go to the hall of fame because it's the ultimate goal for a baseball -- or football or basketball where.
Well -- that was she'd make you eligible so they can be considered but let me now switch to do another project cal let me ask you well.
What's the -- did you and Pete Rose -- We get a reality show with TLC in its called Pete Rose hits and misses.
And when does it start.
It starts on Monday January 14 -- 10 PM.
And it was -- a front Greta we do we OK tell me about I enjoy my job.
Yeah we enjoy doing it because.
People say why did you do well I think I can only answer for me she can answer first open in my case.
I just want to show a different Pete Rose and what people think.
He roses because when people think -- me they think about me knocking catchers down and -- and second baseman down yelling -- pitchers.
Don't want to despite -- credit your game.
I was a knights got when I went home with the fight went over four I didn't go out and beat up to the guard in the in the car louder beat up my.
My wife when I went home I mean I just you know I just that we knew was gonna come back the next day and she had her reasons why she wanted to.
