Pete Rose’s Latest Venture is a Real Head Scratcher

Pete Rose is famous for a few things, but there’s one thing that has made him infamous. Pete has a lifetime ban from baseball for gambling on games he was managing in.

Now Pete has launched a new gambling podcast.

“I know how it looks, and people will criticize,” Rose said, via USA Today. “But it’s not gambling. It’s handicapping. I’m a handicapper.”

Pete Rose, of course, received a lifetime ban back in 1989 after an investigation determined that he bet on games, including with the Cincinnati Reds while he was the manager.

Rose’s podcast, “Pete Rose’s Daily Picks” will drop new episodes six days a week.

Via USA Today, Rose will release five episodes each day lasting between 15 to 20 minutes, and one episode will last about an hour.

“I watch two or three baseball games a day,” Rose said, via USA Today. “And it’s not just baseball. I watch all sports. I love sports. I know I can help people who want to wager on sports.”

I guess Pete Rose has finally realized he’s never getting into the Hall of Fame, so why not try to get a piece of the gambling pie.

We’ll have to see if Pete actually has any handicapping skills…
