32. He wouldn't be a member as a manager because he wasn't a HoF manager anyway.

He managed from 84-89 and didn't win the World series, pennant, or even the NL West (their division at the time) once.

If I was Sparky Anderson, I'd be pissed if there was a plaque that said the only reason Rose wasn't a HoF manager was because of the gambling. Rose was no more a "HoF manager" than Bob Uecker was a "HoF catcher", he just wasn't that good at it.
