Pete Rose on Astros Scandal: 'I Can't Imagine Doing Something Like That'

John Minchillo/Associated Press

MLB hit king Pete Rose, who was banned from baseball for life after betting on games, said he couldn't imagine taking part in a scheme like the one put together by the Houston Astros, which led to year-long suspensions for general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch, both of whom were fired on Monday.

Rose told Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media he doesn't understand why players involved in the scandal—former Astros outfielder and new New York Mets manager Carlos Beltran is the only one specifically named in the report—weren't punished by the league.
