Repeat a lie over and over becomes reality. I think he convinced himself all would be good if he stuck to his guns. Pete says he didn't bet on the Reds to lose but OVER/UNDER, TOTAL RUNS IN A GAME, ETC.... 100's of things to bet upon
Still a huge Pete Fan. I think deserving of the Hall. Should be all or nothing. He has his statue at GAB now. Inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. Pull his stuff from Cooperstown and place it in Cincinnati. Problem solved.
