Re: John Fay Abstains from HOF Voting to Avoid Casting Votes for Bonds and Clemens
I have no problem with Barry Bonds getting in, simply because I truly believe he would have been a Hall of Fame player even if he'd never started going on 'roids. Before he got to San Fran and started juicing, he was just a hair behind Griffey for one of the absolute best players in the game. He'd never have broke the home run record or become the super beast into his late 30's that he became, but he'd have been H.O.F. material.
I don't know what to think about Clemens, really. But as much as I have no problem with leaving borderline guys out for the obvious reasons, I don't think Bonds was ever borderline even in spite of his usage.
