Pete Rose

Ok, I’ll admit this is a major stretch. But at the same time, how much fun would Sundays with Schmidt be with those two together behind a mic for three hours?

Fans enjoyed seeing baseballs all-time hits leader during the World Series coverage, and he brings unlimited knowledge of the game.

You might have to check on the specifics of his suspension and see if he can work for a team in this capacity, but baseball has loosened it’s stance on Rose lately.

He might get in trouble behind the mic, but he’s more than entertaining and would bring the hitting insight that leaves with Matt Stairs.
