Pete Rose, The St. Louis Cardinals and the Need for Consistent MLB Ethics Policies

The new information regarding Pete Rose is only of the ethics scandals that has hit baseball in the last few weeks. Rose’s efforts to finally make it to the Hall of Fame had been getting some traction earlier in the year, but that has changed now. Louis Cardinals, on the other hand, are the best organization in baseball. More recently, in 1981, Seattle Mariners manager Maury Wills extended the batter’s box closer to home plate so his players would have an easier time hitting late breaking curve balls. It is an unequivocal blemish on a franchise that, spin and self-righteousness notwithstanding, is one of the premier teams of the last 10-15 years.

These incidents might be lumped together under the collective notion of ethics violations or breaking the rules, but there are some real differences in both the actions and the likely consequences. Moreover, it is not yet clear how widespread the knowledge of this hacking was within the Cardinal system. Moreover, it was part of an effort to gain an advantage over the Astros by breaking the rules. By betting on baseball, although never against his team, Rose never sought an unfair advantage over another team or player or endangered his or anybody else’s health or safety. The St. This, of course, is also true of what Rose did.

The Cardinal case is different than the Giants case because baseball is in a position to do something about it while the relevant actors are still with the team and different from the Wills case because it involves more than one person. To downplay the problem, let the Cardinals handle it internally or hope that it goes away, the directions in which the issue looks to be going now, would be a big mistake. Every player knows that this is unequivocally forbidden in the baseball. Pete Rose as a player and manager was gruff, a little sleazy and linked to disreputable characters from the gambling world. Wills was caught, received a modest fine and suspension and, a few weeks later, was fired by the Mariners.

It is important that baseball send a clear message, not simply a punitive one to the Cardinals, but one that makes it apparent that high tech cheating will not be tolerated. The people involved in the Cardinal hacking scandal are peripheral front office personnel, rather than star players. In 1951 the New York Giants allegedly had a system of stealing signs that contributed to their great comeback forcing a playoff against the Brooklyn Dodgers and leading to Bobby Thomson’s famous home run, that may also have been the result of stealing signs. This information came to light long after 1951 making it impossible for baseball to do anything about it. The same cannot be said about the Cardinals actions. There are several reasons for this. It would confirm baseball’s timidity, open the door to further cheating and demonstrate again that in the commissioner’s office too frequently everything is personal.

The newest revelations about Pete Rose betting on baseball, something that had long been suspected is a sad coda to a sad story about one of baseball’s all time greats.

While this punishment is reasonable given how clear these rules are, there is another side to it. Lastly, from a baseball angle, although what the Cardinals did was not legal or kosher, the impact of this on play on the field is not clear. The technical term for trying to gain an advantage by breaking the rules is cheating. Rose bet on baseball, thus violating a cardinal, excuse the pun, rule of big league baseball. This also is the first case of this kind in baseball so MLB policies on computer related cheating is still largely undefined. This is true even if the Astros are a bad team in the other league.

There is, however, another reason. Rose has been punished for this with lifetime ban from baseball that includes keeping him out of the Hall of Fame despite his extraordinary career and his position as baseball’s all time hit leader. Louis Cardinals had hacked into the Houston Astros internal network, giving them access to private information and communication between Astro front office personnel.

This Blogger’s Books and Other Items from…. Hacking into another companies computer system is, according to many, illegal. The other is the news that the St.

There have been cases of teams cheating in the past. We know this because the media reminds us of this all the time and because their manager wrote a book called “The Matheny Manifesto: A Young Manager’s Old-School Views on Success in Sports and Life.” I have not read the book but am looking forward to the chapter on how to successfully lose in the post-season to teams that you had been expected to beat.

It is not yet clear what consequences the Cardinals will face for this offense, but the chances of anybody getting banned from baseball for life is very small

California, New York men charged in billion-dollar gambling ring | Reuters

The defendants face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of the top charge of enterprise corruption, prosecutors said. Thompson said he believes the bust is the biggest of its kind to be brought by local prosecutors.

Mitchnick is the suspected leader of the ring, which operated in Brooklyn and other areas, prosecutors said. Additional arrests are expected in the ongoing investigation.

Attorneys for the defendants were not immediately identifiable.

Gordon Mitchnick, 58, Joseph Schneider, 39, Arthur Rossi, 66, and Claude Ferguson, 43, were charged with crimes including enterprise corruption and first-degree promoting gambling in a 57-count indictment, Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson said in a statement.

“Illegal gambling is not a victimless crime,” Thompson said. It was not clear how much money was handled over the life of the operation or for how long it existed. “It preys on peoples’ vulnerabilities and directly leads to money laundering, loansharking and a host of other crimes,” Thompson said.

The group operated several password-protected websites that allowed gamblers to place bets on a series of professional and collegiate sports games, prosecutors said.

NEW YORK Four California and New York men have been charged in an internet-based sports gambling ring that handled nearly $1 billion in bets during a single football season and ran a team of employees in Costa Rica, prosecutors said on Thursday.

The operation accepted $927 million in wagers on National Football League games during the 2015 season, prosecutors said. He is accused of purchasing more than 20 houses to help him launder money. A toll-free number for wagering was also provided.

At its peak, the operation had $200,000 in monthly bills including salaries for a team of employees located in San Jose, Costa Rica, who ran a call center for betters, prosecutors said.

Clients were solicited by word of mouth and on internet gambling forums.

Most forms of gambling are illegal in New York state, with legal gambling limited to Indian reservation casinos, betting on horse races and Las Vegas-style casinos.

The Best Way to Escape The Zombie Apocalypse – Buy a Sailboat!

If you’ve been able to save some friends along with yourself, you had better really like these people.  Even when you’ve managed to trade your way up to something giant that sails, your living space will still be pretty danged small when compared to the houses you all used to live in.  With enough people, though, you could always do sort of a “Survivor” plan and have secret alliances that choose who will be used as bait, should you miscalculate and run into some serious zombie action.  Maybe seeking out nests of survivors would be a good idea after all.

The wind[1] powers your home, and you don’t need to go ashore to get it.  Your sailboat should be equipped with a spare set of sails and a good sewing machine to keep the boat’s power source in optimum condition.  If you do need to refill the engine now and again, most marinas have a fuel dock with no house nearby for zombies to hide in.  A quick trip in to fuel up, maybe grab some water, and you are off, away from the dangerous shoreline.  Another advantage is that docks are usually clear so you’ll see the zombies coming as soon as their feet hit the wood.

It might not be the most exciting diet, but you’ll be able to eat all the fish you can catch.  With no other people fishing, the sea life will increase rapidly and your chances of actually catching something will improve greatly. Being able to distance yourself from the horde of undead is only one reason to plan on using your sailboat to survive the apocalypse.






No self respecting zombie would ever choose to live in a boat, so every marina you come across will be filled with abandoned boats just waiting for you to strip them of all the necessary gear.  A few things, like radios, won’t be of much use, unless you believe there are pockets of survivors calling out their locations.  I can’t imagine any of them would be giving you weather reports so unless you’re looking for survivors (and I would highly recommend against that as there always seems to be one or two infected people amongst them) don’t worry about a radio.  Plenty of seaweed is edible, and you can always plan raids on areas that appear to be zombie free.  You’ll have plenty of time to hang out offshore and watch for activity.

Once you find that “clean” island to live on, you’re golden.  All you have to do is wait for all the zombies on the continents to die out and you can head back home.  You might want to give some consideration to the animalistic mentality that will be prevalent among survivors and try to calculate how long it will take for civilization to re-establish itself.  Search any abandoned boats you come across for the rusting cans of beans they all carry.  Give it at least one good growing season so you can trade your fish for some tasty zucchini.

Ah yes, zombies.  They love the night, hide in unexpected places, and desperately seek to consume your flesh – but they don’t swim.  The most dedicated might, perhaps, walk along the riverbed to get across, but they’re slow; also, I’ve never seen them crossing large bodies of water, like oceans.  As long as you’re in the ocean you could easily pull up anchor to escape once you saw the throng heading into the waves towards your anchored vessel. Just get the good stuff and the beans.


Small or large, your sailboat will have a place to sleep.  Granted, it may be a little small, or require a gymnastics background to get in to, but it’s there.  Keep your sailing range to the equator and you won’t even need blankets.  More talented sailors will choose to move up and down their chosen coastline to take advantage of the best weather.  It’s always possible that a hurricane has cleaned a coastal area of zombies and you’ll have time to go ashore and stretch your legs before the inland zombies repopulate the area.

The one thing cruisers have in abundance is movies.  Sailing gives you a lot of free time and you can only watch the waves for so long. The downside is that people that live on sailboats tend to be cheap, which means that most of your viewing selections (from your vessel, and salvage from abandoned vessels) will be the bad, bad slasher-type DVDs commonly found in the $1 bin at discount stores.  The ghost-of-the-psychopathic-ice-climber-taking-out-the-teenagers-one-by-one type of movies.  Of course, many zombie DVDs also fall into this category, so perhaps you’ll have access to a lot of training videos.  Bonus!

Well, you have a problem here; as a rule, cruisers don’t carry firearms – something about ending up in 3rd world prisons seems to dissuade most people.  While you can attempt raids on land-based strongholds, this is not generally a good idea as these tend to be guarded by survivalist who shoot first, ask questions later.  Your better bet is to get creative with what you will likely find: flare guns, the occasion spear fishing setup, and lots and lots of little tiny pocketknives.  Consider creating oars that double as weapons by attaching knife blades to them.  Don’t dismiss the value of a good whack with a frying pan, either.


Look for small islands that never had people to start with.  Of course this means they’re either uninhabitable, or wildlife refuges.  Go for the refuge, but watch out for the ranger if you do.  It would totally suck to let down your guard only to find that some randomly infected/affected park ranger is roaming the island hoping for careless sailors.  This is a good place to test the ‘zombie bait’ plan.

It’s hard to rank these with regard to importance as some are interdependent while others are advantageous, but not critical.  It is also difficult to be sure that all the most common concepts are covered, such as, what if your sailboat is on a lake?  Should you be more worried about survivors swamping your boat trying to escape land or zombies walking along the lake bottom?  Most of the most critical ideas can be modified for lake survival and perhaps adapted to escaping down a river.  If you will be considering a river escape, you’ll want a powerboat, since zombies won’t be inclined to open draw bridges for you.  Get yourself a sailboat once you’ve reached the shore, and apply the following concepts:



A Beginners Guide to Navigating the Casino Without Losing Your Shirt

The number combination generated at the instant you hit the spin button determines what symbols will be displayed and whether you win or lose.

Slot machines are the easiest and most popular form of casino gambling. You should be mentally prepared to lose it all.. This was a friendly table, he said, and he or the other players would be happy to help a novice. Sure, some players will win big. Over the long run, the casino will win because of how the games are structured.

One of the built-in advantages for a player is that blackjacks traditionally pay 3-to-2, or $15 for a $10 bet. If you “bust” by going over 21, you lose even when the dealer also busts, because the dealer is the last to act. A few favorites:,,, and authors Stanford Wong, Henry Tamburin and Arnold Snyder.

Finding yourself amid the thousands of games, dealing with the noise, lights and other casino distractions, and ogling the vast amounts of money and chips can intimidate anyone.

Many people making their first casino trip or trying out a new game are like that uneasy blackjack player. The RNG’s sole function is to spit out groups of numbers. Never play them. Casinos make more money from slots than from any other game. Many players mistakenly think the object of blackjack is to get a hand as close as possible to a total of 21 without going over. The card makes you eligible for offers of discounted or free food, hotel rooms or other amenities based on the amount of your play. Slot players put their cards into the machine; table game players present their cards to the dealer.

Casinos also offer a variety of “carnival games” that are variations of poker and blackjack. That can range from a penny to several hundred dollars. Some machines let you choose the value of a credit, such as 25 cents, 50 cents, $1 or $2. You could hit a big jackpot or you could lose your buy-in within a few minutes.

Blackjack, if you take a few minutes to learn the basic strategy of when to hit or stand.

Video Poker, if you make the effort to look for good pay tables and learn simple guidelines for which cards to keep and throw away.

Craps, a game that looks more complicated than it actually is.

However, that doesn’t mean you should just throw your money away on long shots. She pulled out three $20 bills and gingerly placed them on the felt, confessing to the dealer this was her first time playing the game.

When you plan a casino trip, figure out how much you’re willing to spend for that night’s entertainment. Slot players don’t have to worry about making the “right play” or doing something that could affect other gamblers. The casino gets its cut by collecting a “rake,” typically $4 or $5, out of every pot.

If you find yourself ahead after a couple of hours of fun, then remember the dealer’s advice for the nervous blackjack player: Run for the hills!

The house advantage on slots can vary by casino, but typically it’s about 10 percent. Since blackjacks will come at the same rate at each type of game — once in about every 21 hands — playing at 6-to-5 table costs you about $6 an hour.

One question all casino visitors ask themselves is how much money to take. The machine itself is the entertainment. In other words, for every $100 put into machines throughout the casino, the machines return an average of about $90 over the long run. The vast majority won’t. In the short run, anything can happen. With slots, the outcome is determined by a computer program called a random number generator, or RNG. Some want a four-star restaurant and a live musical.

Slot machines appeal to people looking for a pressure-free way to pass the time. Her blackjack fling started with a victory.

The black-haired woman nervously thumbed through her purse as she took the end seat at the blackjack table. If you go out for dinner and a show, you know how much that’s worth to you. Some games have surround-sound chairs for what manufacturers call “immersion” gaming.

“You know what you should do now?” the dealer asked, barely suppressing a smile as he prepared to deliver the punch line. The goal is to beat the dealer. The answer depends on your own assessment of how much you’re willing to spend for a night at a casino. At that game, the player with a blackjack gets paid only $12 for a $10 bet. Smart gamblers find a game they enjoy and learn the strategies that reduce the house edge as much as possible.

A penny machine is a misnomer. Many are tied to popular movies, TV shows or musical artists – think “Lord of the Rings” or “Pawn Stars” or Dolly Parton – or even games such as Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly and Battleship. The process is simple: Push a button; win or lose; repeat. She put out the $10 minimum bet and was dealt a two-card 20 for her first hand. They want to gamble but they’re not exactly sure what to do.

The challenge for bettors is to find a game that they enjoy and that has a house edge they’re comfortable with. Although each credit is worth only one cent, players can wager as much as $3 a spin by playing multiple pay lines and more than one credit per line.

Regardless of what you might hear elsewhere, there is no strategy for winning at a slot machine. A rule of thumb is that the higher the base denomination, the less the house advantage.

When you enter any casino for the first time, head to the players club booth and join. As a rule of thumb, the easier a game is to play, the higher the house edge.

Before you put money into a slot, check the machine’s display to see how much one credit is worth. Dollar machines pay out more than quarter machines, and quarter machines pay out more than nickel machines.

Blackjack is the most popular card game by far. It’s all pure luck, as opposed to skill games such as blackjack and poker. Those who follow basic strategy can reduce the house edge to 0.5 percent or less, making it the closest thing to an even-money game the casino offers. Some casinos offer games that pay 6-to-5 for a blackjack. Slots can account for 70 percent or more of the money casinos make from gambling.

Games with a low house edge include:        

Casinos offer a variety of games to entice everyone from those dreaming of a life-changing jackpot to people simply enjoying a night out.

“No problem,” he assured her.  

Poker is popular, but it differs from all other games because you play against other gamblers rather than against the house. That’s not right. Those include Three Card Poker, Let It Ride Blackjack Switch and Spanish 21. Casinos have evolved into one of the country’s premiere entertainment options. Some folks are comfortable eating at a chain restaurant and catching a matinee. Take what you are comfortable spending. About 27 percent of Americans visit a casino at least once a year, according to the American Gaming Association, and that number grows as legalized gambling continues to expand beyond the traditional centers of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Players have the option of hitting or standing, while the dealer must follow specific rules — generally, he must hit if the total is 16 or less and stand with a total of 17 through 21. A cynical adage holds that casino executives figure that whatever you bring through the door is theirs – you just happen to be holding it for the moment. So if the dealer’s up-card is weak — especially a Four, Five or Six — it’s better for a player to stand on a “stiff” hand of 12 through 16 than trying to hit and get closer to 21.

Just bear in mind that you’re there to have fun. Never bet with money you need for the mortgage or medical bills. Use your players club card whenever you gamble there. They’re generally easy to learn and play.

Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran, the most important fact about a casino is this: The house always has the edge, no matter what game you play. “Run! Run for the hills while you’re ahead!”

Many books and Web sites teach basic strategy for blackjack. Slot manufacturers spend millions of dollars to make machines that entice people play longer. Each number corresponds to a specific symbol on the display. In some games, all the players on a group, or “bank” of machines might share in a bonus round

All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’

All Rights Reserved. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.

Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.

© 2003 The Associated Press. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.

BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome.

At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said. Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.

“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. The winner is unknown until he or she is chosen in a vote by other contestants during a live broadcast.

Callers to the offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”

For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.

Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.

By Lynn Elber

He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.

“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”

An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.

The Costa Rica-based found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.

“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,'” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”

They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said. He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.. Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.

The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said

Betfair Lay Betting Tips And Secrets

If so, I wish you luck because you have done extremely well, but you are very much in the minority.

Patience will play a big part in all successful ‘layers’, their attitude to risk will be much better adjusted, knowing that their profit will come over a period of time by strictly following a good staking plan, they will only lay bet when their system indicates a strong lay betting opportunity.

Sometimes, this greatly increased chance of a successful lay bet can lure the inexperienced layer into the trap of thinking that lay betting is easy. By taking bets from people in this traditional way enables the bookies to make millions of pounds profit each year. Sometimes, ‘backers’ will strive to put in the extra work needed, helping them with their final betting selections, by analysing stats, studying form, maybe taking advice, of following good quality betting tips etc.

The lay bet – typical ‘layers’ attitude … . You become the ‘backer’.

Now we all know that it’s much more difficult to pick a winner, than it is to pick a loser. This fact is undoubtedly true, but with some important differences. If the outcome of the event that you lay bet does indeed lose, then you get to keep the stake money just like the bookmaker. For handing over a relatively small amount of cash,combined with the exciting prospect of a possible good win looming, the temptation can be simply too much to resist.

It will come as no surprise to you that I am most definitely a ‘layer’.

If you can make money from lay betting in the same way as a bookie, by being a ‘layer’, why would anyone want to be a ‘backer’?

Which one are you?

Now, I am not suggesting that every backer falls into the above categories. Well it is easy to do, but you need to make confident lay bets based on sound judgement and analysis, always making sure that you are completely familiar with the type of event you are lay betting, no lay betting on whims, or hunches.

-Lawrence Taylor-

Therefore, you might want an answer to this question:-

If your aim is to be highly successful at lay betting on Betfair, you should be looking to achieve a win rate of around 9 times out of 10. If the bet loses then the bookmaker will keep your stake money. Therefore, unlike the ‘backer’, the odds are stacked very much in the ‘layers’ favour as far as the probability of a successful lay bet is concerned.

I do hope this helps you to decide whether you are a ‘backer’ or a ‘layer’. This is realistically achievable. Since the introduction of betting exchanges such as Betfair, you now have the unique opportunity to lay bets in the same way as a bookmaker. Thank you very much for reading this article.

As people say “you don’t see a poor bookie very often”.

On the other hand, the experienced and clued up ‘layer’ will have complete confidence in their selection process, whilst adopting a highly disciplined and professional approach to their lay betting. The ‘layer’ will not be expecting to make a killing from just one lay bet, therefore is likely to be more patient and better prepared, safe in the knowledge that the Betfair lay bet is readily available.

Betfair Lay Betting Tips And Secrets – Are You A Backer Or A Layer?

 by: Lawrence Taylor

Someone looking for a ‘quick fix’, knowing that each time they make a back bet the odds are stacked firmly against them, they are lured into ‘backing’ based purely on a hunch, or a betting tip, maybe from a mate at work. The strange thing is that they follow this same pattern race after race, day after day, week in week out ‘ and the bookies love them!

The back bet – typical ‘backers’ attitude …

There is one very important thing that most ‘backers’ and ‘layers’ are likely to have in common – they both want to make as much money as possible in the shortest possible amount of time. A couple of minutes before each race, they hurriedly glance through the race card, make their selection then run to the counter to place their back bet, then invariably watch it lose. You become the ‘layer’.

If you place a ‘back’ bet with a bookmaker in the usual way and the bet wins, the bookmaker will pay out your winnings. They will never lay bet with money that is needed for other important things like household bills, only using money that is set aside purely for their lay betting activities. If you fall into this category because you have developed your own unique method for selecting that really hot horse in a race, or statistics might be your thing, giving you a profitable edge to your favourite sport before you decide on that all important back bet. Sticking rigidly to a good solid staking plan they will never over commit themselves.

Well, it depends on what you expect to achieve from lay betting, also what your general betting expectations are. Let me explain …

If you enter a bookmaker’s premises you will often observe many ‘gamblers’ with their lists of lucky numbers, betting tips, hot tips etc, going about the same routine always used to make their selections. Remember you are looking for losers, not winners.

A ‘layer’ is the complete opposite of a ‘backer’, it’s basically the same as playing the role of the bookmaker
