    Does Clemens go to the Hall of Fame?

    Does it change your opinion about Bonds?

    Ban 'em all. Let God sort 'em out.

    Seriously, though, anyone who fails a test and anyone listed in this report should be banned. If people can get banned for life for gambling, they should be for PED use as well.

    Don't vote for anyone. Send in a blank ballot.

    Let's say with the Blue Jays, Yankees and Astros, Clemens is as average as he was his last four years with the Red Sox (assuming he even plays that long).

    Is he a Hall of Famer? Probably not.
  5. Absolutely Roger Clemens goes to the hall of fame. We can't shoot down everyone who took steriods.

    If you put in Clemens you must put in Bonds.

    If you put him in, you must put everyone who ever played baseball in!!

    So what separates him from, say, a Barry Bonds? Just asking.

    Oh I'd probably vote for him, just as I'd vote for McGwire and Palmeiro. But without steroids, I don't think he turns into a Hall of Famer. So his claim to being the greatest pitcher of the modern era is as tainted as Bonds' claim to being the home run king is.

    I'd still vote Clemens and Bonds in, even though both were cheating steriod abusers.

    But of course, I'm also a guy who thinks Pete Rose should be there as well.

    Hal Morris just lost my vote. I had such high hopes for him. Damn.
