I think that voters will probably end up applying a standard based on smoking guns (i.e. Papi’s failed test or Pettitte’s admission of the veracity of Mitchell vs mere conjecture for Bagwell or Piazza.) As to Ortiz’s candidacy, it’s virtually impossible to tell the story of early 21st century baseball without him and that’s as good a reason as any. I’m surprised Edgar Martinez doesn’t come up more in DH discussions.

“On the bright Sunday afternoon of March 18, 1984, Randy Johnson took the mound for the University of Southern California at Arizona State University’s Packard Stadium.
He was among the most interesting collection of sports figures ever assembled on a college baseball field.
The game featured two players who would break the major leagues’ single-season home run record (one still holds it). One would become an NFL linebacker and head coach, another would eventually be a major-league manager. Then there was a center fielder deemed the best player of all of them, a seeming Hall of Famer in waiting.
Oh, and the umpires included a Phoenix resident who would become the first (and still only) woman to rise to the ranks of Class AAA baseball, one notch below the big leagues.”
Plus ASU’s 4th outfielder, a kid named Mike Devereaux who was the only team-member not to vote the starting left fielder off the team, because he didn’t want to get his starting job that way.
