If I had a vote, Morris, Biggio, Bagwell, Piazza, and Martinez would all be in this year. I'm on the fence about Bonds and Clemens; both have HOF stats, no doubt about that, but the steroids issue really bugs me. I understand the argument that they were HOF caliber before they juiced, but the fact that they did hurt their integrity and character, which must also be taken into account according to the guidelines set forth by Cooperstown. No matter how good they were, they were cheaters. This is kind of the same thing with Rose... HOF caliber stats but at best questionable integrity and character; the only difference is that the writers don't have to make a decision on him because he has the ban. In my head, if the writers keep somebody like Clemens or Bonds out for steroids, they are doing so because of their lack of integrity, which I'm fine with. However, for those writers that are doing this, if they would be putting Rose in if they could, than I feel that is a double standard.
The interesting piece will be if the writers continue to keep steroid users out and then somebody does make it in and it comes out after the fact that they too were juicing. What happens then?
