even when you ignore the banning, he's been out of a dugout for 22 years. i doubt he can be effective.

I also want to have a full head of hair, but without a miracle; that ain't happening Pete!

The lack of inside information is killing his betting.

I wouldn't let him manage a 7-Eleven...

And Art Schlichter wants to coach.

Does his banning extend to the independent leagues? I'm surprised that he has never tried to get a job with one of those teams. You know they would hire him in an instant just for the added attendance that it would generate, especially if it were an Ohio team.

Maybe he should just stick with trying to get into the HOF? I still think he deserves to be there.

He'd probably scratch off all the lottery tickets.

When I met him a month or so ago In Vegas (Ironically enough) he mentioned his son was managing for the White Sox minor league. Bristol, Va., affiliate in the Appalachian League. I asked him if he wanted to manage and said if the opportunity came up he would like to. Through family and friends in the league you know he still keeps up with baseball. I am sure there are worse options out there for manager.

He's just the type of grindy grinder who could teach other grinders to grind out more wins.

Make him a "Coach of All Grindy Things" in the farm system, I say. His grindy nature certainly couldn't hurt Jared Mitchell's pitch recognition, or Jordan Danks'/Tyler Flowers'/Dayan Viciedo's plate discipline.

What exactly has changed about baseball strategy since he left the dugout? It's not like football or basketball where there's new offenses or defenses that you can lose touch with.

He could come in to be our hitting coach.

I think he would be the perfect manager for an Independent Minor League team. He always seemed he was more hustle than talent, and the guys playing Indy ball are at the end of the rope. They could learn a thing or two from Pete, and maybe get a look and get back into the system.

As far as Pete Jr. He was in the Sox organization around the time of the Strike, and I believe he was in Spring Training as a replacement player in '95, along with Oil Can Boyd. He did eventually make the Big Leagues with the Reds in the late 90s. I remember that, as MLB allowed Senior to attend the games of Junior, briefly lifting the ban. Senior was also allowed to attend the '99 AS Game, as part of the All-Century team.

Is that Jim Gray interview looked upon differently now that Senior has admitted to the gambling?
