Nevertheless, if you are betting against your team, you must be a special breed of stupid to throw out the opposing player at the plate and hit .375 in a World Series.

Must also be weird for the courts to find you 'not guilty'.
uh.... what are you talking about?

I'm asking if he was mostly hitting when the team was out if it and if he suddenly disappeared when the team was still in it.

And even if that wasn't the case, he still was party to a plan to throw the World Series. Him playing well doesn't negate that.

Also..... what betting against your own team? Jackson wasn't betting and Rose didn't bet against his team.
