Steroid-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa have been denied entry to baseball's Hall of Fame with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in four decades.

Bonds would have been in if he did t do the roids. He's just a moron. I agree no roid /cheater should be in the hall of fame. Also the hall of fame seriously needs to tight its requirements because there's a huge amount of players that are in there that are no where near the ball players as Aaron,Ruth,Mickey,ford, and so on

I agree when we look at players like Ruth and that gang they drank and eat like fishes and still went out and set records. Players like Yastrzemski who played taped up braced up hurt and did so late in age did it all with out meds. anyone who has to take drugs to perform isn't worthy of the honor. Look at Many Ramirez one of the best hitters ever but he also was like that because of the dope. once he stopped he didn't have it in him to compete. No not worthy at all no matter how many awards they have won.

Yes, both Bonds and Clemens will make it. Once those two break the barrier (maybe three to four years from now?) then players like A-Rod will get a much larger pass.
Sosa was only a borderline HOF election anyways- I feel he and McGuire will never get in. Pretty ironic, considering how much Baseball pumped up their single season HR chase to help get the fans back after the lock out cost the World Series and their product was at their lowest point. Every indication was that Owners and managers all knew their players were juicing, and encouraged it by their silence because "Chicks dig the Long Ball."
I worry for players like Frank Thomas, who may get that "guilt by association", even though they never were suspected or on any list. Thomas is also a border line HOF, and voters my just punish him because."Life is hard. But it is harder when you are stupid."

I really don't see Clemens making it in. His demeanor before congress and his other interviews, I think really ruined his reputation.
