Clemens_during_anthem_6603
When it comes to the Baseball Hall of Fame, they need to either change the record books, or let in everybody that cheated. Roger Clemens‘ HOF vote is up next, and that is when we’ll really see who gets in and who is left outside looking in with Pete Rose. Watching Clemens when he was in New Britain, CT in 1983, there was talent on the mound that had Cooperstown in my mind instantaneously. That day when he threw a shutout to win the Eastern League Championship, I said “someday I will see him win the World Series for Boston.” When I went to Game Six in 1986, my dream was close to coming true. He won 192 games in a Red Sox uniform and nobody has worn his number 21 since he left for Toronto in 1997. The greatest pitcher in Red Sox history, and he threw it all away for a syringe a decade later. How could using PED’s in the 1995-2007 era be any different than those that used greenies from the 50′s until 2011? We let Gaylord Perry in the HOF and he admits he cheated from day one. Graig Net...

Roger Clemens reportedly sold real estate to provide for family in case he went to jail

Roger Clemens never wavered over the past several years in defending himself against steroid accusations. His attorney, Rusty Hardin, insisted no reasonable jury would have enough evidence to convict Clemens of perjury, and Hardin wound up being right when The Rocket was acquitted over the summer. However, it would seem that there was a time when Clemens wasn’t fully confident...

Green, Bonds, and Clemens on the HoF Ballot

This year's Hall of Fame ballot has been released and its headlined by Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. Both will be a true test to the steroid ear as Bonds and Clemens are arguably the best hitter and pitcher who ever lived (please note that I wrote arguably). But we here at TGR are less concerned about Bonds and Clemens and more concerned about first time ballot nominee...

Steroid era set to invade Hall ballot

The Baseball Hall of Fame: Why Pete Rose and not PED's?

It never fails. Regardless of time of day or season there is no movie that inspires my love of baseball as much as Field of Dreams. The inner struggle of a thirty something portrayed by Kevin Costner remains relatable and accessible while the scene stealing monologues performed by cinematic greats Burt Lancaster and James Earl Jones capture the essence, beauty and durability...

With January’s Hall of Fame Inductions will come the rewriting of History.

This January, as it does every year, the Baseball Writer’s Association of America (BWAA) will be voting on the National Baseball Hall of Fame. What’s far from typical is the attention this year’s particular ballot will receive. Among those eligible for the first time will be Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Craig Biggio, Curt Schilling and Mike Piazza. In the cases...

It’s Time To Expand HOF Ballots

The BBWAA released the 2013 Hall of Fame ballots yesterday, and in a related story, writers from around the country made it clear that they weren’t going to vote for players that have been implicated in PED usage. Some even find it an annual tradition to be celebrated. Oh, the joy I will have snubbing Sosa, Bonds and Clemens (plus McGwire and Palmeiro, natch) on my HoF ballot...

Column: The Big 3 deserve a big no in Hall vote

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist It could have been the greatest Hall of Fame class since Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were installed in the very first vote back in 1936. It would have been if those eligible had allowed their natural ability to carry the day. Barry Bonds never needed steroids to be great. It was already in his genes, and the numbers he put up...
