Voters disappoint with 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame class

The rumors had been floating around for a while, but, as a baseball fan, I hoped they were untrue.  The Baseball Hall of Fame voters were not going to vote anyone into the Hall of Fame in 2013.  Today, those rumors came to fruition.  On a charged ballot featuring the first time candidacy of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa, no one was elected into the Hall of Fame....

Craig Biggio says lumping him with PED users “unfair”

Mark McGwire’s Hall of Fame votes should frame Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds debate

The result of this year’s Hall of Fame election, in which no payers were elected, is already controversial enough, but the number of votes for some players who appeared on the ballot for the first time is what could set the stage for vehement arguments for years to come. Known steroid users Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds graced the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time this year...

Cooperstown Already Filled With Questionable Characters, Regardless of Steroid Era Players (Photos)

The votes are in, and baseball’s Hall of Fame will be opening its doors to a fresh crop of players this year. However, the class of 2013 is not one that comes without controversy, as many notable “Steroid Era” players have wound up on the ballot for the first time. With Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and the like awaiting their fates, however, it would be an appropriate...

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. Roger Clemens might want to head to the gym for one of those famous workouts that used to make him pitch like he was 22 when he was 42. If the polls are right - and my guess is they're pretty spot on - there's no need for either to wait by the phone Wednesday when baseball writers...

New York Times Runs Blank First Page of Sports Section After Hall of Fame Vote

J.J. Watt shows support for Craig Biggio after he misses Hall of Fame (Picture)

No former MLB players were elected to the baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday, but former Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio came the closest. Biggio, whose name has been loosely associated with steroids like almost every other player who played in the 1990s, received more votes than any other player on the ballot but still came up 39 votes short. J.J. Watt was disappointed...

Steroids In The Hall And Beyond

Steroids and the Baseball Hall of Fame just don't mesh well. Steroids in baseball paint a picture of shady cheaters, selling out their bodies, integrity, morals, honor, and self-respect in dark corners of clubhouses around the USA, aided by equally-as-shady trainers and suppliers. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is everything that is right with sports; legends inhabiting...
