The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham has a Hall of Fame vote. And While WEE’s Alex Speier does not, the two debated the issue of steroids and the Baseball Hall of Fame on NESN Daily‘s latest “Two Sides” segment. While Abraham clearly took an inclusive approach with his ballot, while Speier believes that public opinion is thoroughly turning against all the accused players from the steroids era. Curt Schilling, amongst players who missed out on Cooperstown this year, had some interesting comments on the matter, which was a second topic debated by the two Red Sox insiders. Check out all the good-natured arguing in the video above.

Column: Bonds, Clemens will get in. Bet on it.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will get into the Hall of Fame someday, and without using the side entrance, either.

Column: No suspense for Bonds, Clemens in HOF vote

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Barry Bonds can go for a bike ride.
