Here's the Thing

Wouldn't Pete Rose manage his team differently in games where he had some action, trying hard to win those games at the possible expense of his bullpen, or his starting pitcher, or a player who might need rest? And if that argument is plausible, then isn't it also true that he compromised his team's chances, even slightly, in subsequent games? And if that's true, then it's just as bad as betting on his team, because the integrity of all the games are in question.
