Complicity

Yes, I think Barry Bonds should absolutely be in the Hall of Fame. And, Yes, he did steroids. Don’t think I’m one for letting off drug users.  Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you I’m the most irrationally anti-drug person on the planet.  Seriously.  Don’t engage me in a marijuana legalization debate, because I’ll become very unpopular in San Francisco and...

NEW YORK — Baseball’s all-time home run king and the game’s most decorated pitcher likely will be shut out of the Hall of Fame in January. A survey by The Associated Press shows that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, as well as slugger Sammy Sosa, don’t have enough votes to get into Cooperstown. With steroid scandals still very much on the minds of longtime members of the Baseball...

MLB's drug testing report released

George Mitchell tagged all-time home run champ Barry Bonds, seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens and more than 80 other current and former players as drug cheats on Dec. 13, 2007. One of...

Pat Caputo and the Hall of Fame

I had never heard of Pat Caputo before this morning, but found a link on The Book Blog and had to check it out. Tango highlighted how Caputo won't vote for Craig Biggio because, well, because Caputo is an idiot I guess. I will not mark the names of Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens on [...]

Hall of Shame voting: Strike out all three steroid users

Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling. The front part is a virtual rap sheet. Probably the only one with a chance to get in is Schilling, bloody sock and all. I remember when Schilling was with the Phillies. One September, he struck out 19 or 20 Yankees. Jack Morris, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines are the top holdover candidates. Bonds...

And Those Elected to the 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame are…

The nominees for the 2013 National Baseball Hall of Fame Class are out.  They consist of all-time greats, record setters, superstars, controversial figures, borderline superstars and others that will not get the required percentage to stay on the ballot for one more year.  Either way, as I have done every year for the past few years, I will tell you those players that should be...

The calls started to come the other night from other Hall of Fame writers asking if I intended to vote for Mike Piazza, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa.

Because of their connection to performance enhancing drugs, I did not vote for Mark McGwire or Rafael Palmeiro, the latter whom I covered when...
