A 36.128 CINCINNATI (AP) - Baseball gave no indication Thursday of its next move to try and untie Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti's hands in the Pete Rose case Thursday. Giamatti was in Washington, where he gave a deposition to Rose's lawyers, and denied that a compromise was in the works. "It wasn't that kind of a meeting," the commissioner said. Robert Pitcairn Jr., one of Rose's lawyers, had said earlier that attorneys for the Cincinnati Reds manager were willing to discuss a possible settlement Giamatti, when asked if the depo sition session with Rose's lawyers were successful, said, "I dont know. They were useful." He declined to say more about the meeting, held in the law office of John M. Dowd, who led baseball's investigation into Rose's alleged gambling. The deposition apparently had to do with a court date next Thursday in Rose's attempt to block Giamatti from holding a hearing or deciding his fate over charges that the Reds manager bet on his team's games. A state appeals court declined Wednesday to do anything about a temporary restraining order granted Rose by Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Norbert A. Nadel. The 14-day order prevents Giamatti from summoning Rose to his office or from taking any disciplinary action against the manager. Baseball's lawyers would not say whether they would try to block Thursday's hearing before Nadel when Rose will seek to have his protection extended while the merits of the case are argued. "Nothing today," Rich Levin, Giamatti's spokesman, said in New York when asked if baseball's lawyers had decided on their next move. Nadel declined to comment Thursday on reports showing that he has accepted more than $1,600 in past campaign contributions from lawyers in the two firms that represent Rose.
