In any event, I don't have a conceptual problem, still, with the players who cheated with steroids not making it into the Hall for now, or ever, for that matter. I don't have a conceptual problem, either, with "punishment", if that's what people want to call it, falling on the poster boys for the steroid use. Yes, all benefited, but its not like anyone is asking McGwire or Sosa or Bonds or Clemens to give back millions of dollars in salary they earned while using, and other than the Bonds/Clemens perjury things (which was over truthy issues), no one is trying to put them in jail.
If the one "sanction" if you will, of that era, is that the poster boys don't get enshrined, if that's the one line that isn't crossed, so be it. Its okay with me that there is some line in the sand, even at this late date, that says that what happened was wrong.
