Now I Get It - Here Is Why Pete Rose Needs to Stay Out of Baseball

I couldn't figure out how it could be 'bad for baseball' if Rose only ever bet for his team to win. From a Washington Post editorial:

As Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated notes, a manager betting on his own club in a particular game might be suspected of doing things to win that game -- using an overworked relief pitcher, for example -- that will hurt the team in the long run.
Makes sense to me. I was never in favor of putting him into the Hall, anyways.
