    I would be surprised if there wasn't a steroid user in the HOF already.

    He should get in, for his "This is our fucking city" speech alone.

    Probably. He'll get in because he's a jovial teddy bear.
    Bonds and Clemens are surly assholes, they stay out.

    The rumors are out there about Rickey and he played forever

    Difference is Ortiz's name was spotted on a list of players who tested positive and he had arguably his best season at age 40


    Mike .Piazza is another known roider who got a pass

    Its tough to pin the steroids on someone who was consistently great from day 1 Henderson, Griffey and Ripken fit that definition. They were consistent with their numbers and physique. It's the ones whose game performance or body change noticeably (ie. Clemens regaining speed that was lost on his fastball or McGuire becoming injury free) that are easy to pick up. At this point there is so much money at stake I would think for your career you have to do something now.

    Rickey played until his was almost 50 and was known to pop huge numbers in contract years. You think McGwire and Canseco were shooting up in the club house and Rickey wasn't?

    Griffey hit 50+ hrs from the beginning of his career? Aroid's body never markedly changed, cause he wasn't using HGH or winstrol for bulk.

    A lot of writers won't vote him in because he was a career DH so probably not.
