1. Sosa
2. Canseco
3. Bonds
4. Baker
5. Anyone who obviously did steroids and is trying to get away with it
6. Rose
Despite the fact that Rose is probably the most unpleasant person ever to play the game of baseball (aside from a few untouchables like Albert Belle), anyone who did steroids is worse in my mind.

I rank gambling a greater evil than steriods. Steriods, at the very least, can be construed as player's attempt to go to any length to succeed. It's not honest, but that user would not be indifferent to the result of a game. Winning is winning and losing is losing. The gambler, on the other hand, can lose and still win, and vice versa.
Baker is just the schmo that manages a team I despise. Canseco is out of baseball. The other two jerks, if I'm a pitcher, I put my conscience on hiatus when they bat. Coming right at you.

I gotta put Bonds as #1 because I view him as the biggest cheater. He's gonna be the all-time HR leader and he's a cheater. I wonder if he could look Willie Mays and Hank Aaron in the eye. Rose is a close second. They both altered the outcome of games by their cheating and tarnished baseball for the long-term. Canseco and Sosa are cheaters but their cheating had less of an effect. No records were involved. Baker us just a putz because he thinks Bonds is getting a raw deal like OJ did.

During the late 70's and all through the 80's there were heavy rumors of Rose's steroid use. That written:
1. Bonds: quite a press conference old buddy
2. Baker: the classic enabler
3. Soso: should be a three way tie......really
4. Conseco: he's been a goofball and a doofus for a LONG time
5. OHHHHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO: you know who.

Baseball winked at recent steroid use. Long ago it made it clear that gambling would get you banned for life. Pete Rose and Joe Jackson have a couple of things in common -- one being that they aren't in the HOF because of gambling. But Jackson did what he did before baseball expressly forbid association with gamblers. Rose knew the first time he walked into a major league clubhouse that association with gamblers could get him banned from baseball. Unlike Jackson, he would have been able to read the sign that made that clear.

That makes Rose the biggest doofus in the history of baseball. His doofus-ness is great enough that it transcends the sport.

In comparison, the other people on the list are just jerks. Not just jerks, of course. Most jerks pale in comparison.

The other thing that Rose and Jackson have in common is that without baseball, neither would have had the opportunity to do much with their lives.

Rose is clearly #1, it's not even close to me! Canseco 2nd. The rest I wouldn't rank.
