    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    If it's baseball you are taking about, I wouldn't have a problem voting for any of them. If they said 102 players tested positive during the time Arod juiced, that is a large portion of players. I can juice up all I want, but if I'm not good at baseball, it's not going to help me anyway, you still need to be able to play the game.

    I'd vote for Rose but I think it's a travesty he's not in yet.

    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    I'd vote for Pete Rose. Let's get over the fact that he bet on baseball; it seems like his punishment has exceeded his crime.

    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    I would vote all of them except Sosa and McGwire and it has nothing to do with steroids. They both hit alot of home runs but I don't think they have HOF carreers.

    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    I almost have to abstain here...just because I'm only allowed one vote. Because for many of these guys, the reasons "keeping them out of the hall" are so similar, that if you say yes to one, then on principle you're saying yes to one or two more

    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    It's a screwjob that Rose isn't already in the HoF so he'd be my first vote.

    My second vote would be A-Rod because he got caught and just bit the bullet and told the truth. He isn't hiding (I assume) anything where Clemens and his wife are HGHing together, Bonds hides behind his ***** trainer Greg Anderson, Sosa gets nailed with a corked bat as well as alleged steroid use, and McGwire admitted using andro (which was legal at that point in time, but I betcha it wasn't the only thing he was using).

    This is basically my thinking - and why I abstained.

    My only problem is, I just can't deal with the media and "I betchas." It just seems constitutionally irresponsible to me. (AKA Stephen A Smith)

    I am in 100% agreement with this statement.

    That's a tough one. I hope most of them don't come on the ballot at the same time.

    Re: If you HAD to vote one of these guys in the Hall

    I think all could be let in the Hall....just note somewhere that they played during the roid era (besides Rose since his reason is more for gambling).

    Rose bet on the game....but it's not like his betting caused him to get more hits.

    I am old enough to remember Pete Rose in his prime; I hated the guy which is evidence of his greatness! Nobody ever alleged he bet against one of his teams and none of those schenanigans have anything to do with 4256 hits! He should win this poll in a landslide...

    I saw bits and pieces of the ARod interview this morning and he's as disingenuous as the day is long. He's telling Peter Gammons he doesn't know what he took and suggesting they all came from GNC. You could basically see the gerbils turning the wheel in his head on the Couric question as he tried to remember what his handlers told him to say! Ridiculous!!!

    Same for me here, I think with that period of time you just have to assume people used things because it was the thing to do. So you either take no one at all from the period or you take everyone that qualifies.
