John Fay Abstains from HOF Voting to Avoid Casting Votes for Bonds and Clemens
I’d rather abstain than play judge and jury this year. The two most deserving players statistically of the 37 on the ballot are Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. Bonds was the best hitter I’ve seen. Clemens was the most dominant pitcher.
Both should be absolute locks to be first-ballot inductees.<snip>
But this morning, I was too torn to pull the lever.
