The Baseball Hall of Fame Ballots are out, and expect every sports talk radio station and talking head to discuss the PED era and the Hall of Fame. Sure, it has been discussed before as Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro have been on the ballot receiving low vote tallies that would have inconceivable a decade ago, but despite the high profile they had, three bigger stars have emerged on the Hall of Fame ballot. Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa have now entered the list and EVERYBODY has an opinion. Of course they are not alone as they join other first ballot entries and returning stars like Jeff Bagwell, Edgar Martinez, Fred McGriff, Lee Smith, Don Mattingly, Alan Trammell, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Tim Raines and Larry Walker.

  • Jeff Bagwell, Edgar Martinez, Fred McGriff, Lee Smith, Don Mattingly, Alan Trammell, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Tim Raines and Larry Walker.
    All of the above should be in the HOF.
    Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa and all of the CHEATERS do not now or ever belong in the HOF.
    If I was a member of the HOF and they voted them in, I would request to be removed. THEY DO NOT BELONG!!
    Pete Rose should be giving the red carpet entry into the HOF if you think for a moment those others belong...
  • You know who should be considered? Kenny Lofton. But he's not getting any attention because of this class. It's a shame.
  • All the cheaters should not even have their names on the ballot!
