Do You Agree With Baseball Hall of Fame Voters? (POLL)

For the first time since 1996 no players will be inducted to the Hall of Fame.

 

Major League Baseball will have no players making their way into the Hall of Fame this year.

Baseball writers across the country elected to shut out Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens from Cooperstown on Wednesday.

According to the New York Times, it was the "most resounding referendum on the legacy of steroids in baseball," and only the eighth time ever no players got the required 75 percent of votes from baseball writers.

Former Houston Astro Craig Biggio came the closest, getting 68 percent of the votes. 

Sammy Sosa, another name involved in steroids, was also rejected by voters, along with former Mets catcher Mike Piazza and another former Astro Jeff Bagwell.

Bonds and Clemens were the two biggest names involved with steroid scandals that marred Major Leage Baseball in past seasons.

Which player do you believe should have made the Hall of Fame? Take our poll or share your thoughts in the comments section.

It's a joke that they would even be considered for the HoF. Look at lance Armstrong. They banned him and took his titles w/o a positive test. These guys have been caught and they keep their titles and home run records. Hypocrisy???? What a double standard.

agreed if they want to make the hall of fame "PURE" they should dig up every baseball player elected since the 30s and test their DNA for any banned substances (could you imagine removing Mickey Mantle from the HOF because someone claimed to have his hairbrush from the 50s with steroid positive hair on it) where would it stop ??? gatoraide and energy bars should be banned (it was not around when Babe Ruth Played)
