Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are going to be Hall of Famers: Here’s what it means

If you vote for Bonds and Clemens (and it’s really hard not to), how can you not vote for everyone else who has the numbers but has been linked to steroids?

It’s happening. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are getting in to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It won’t be this year, and it probably won’t be next year, either, but it’s very possible by 2019, and if not then, they will ascend the Cooperstown stage in 2020 or 2021.

My Hall of Fame Ballot by Mark Newman (or why I overhauled everything)

Baseball players make adjustments throughout their careers, whether it is adding a new pitch, moving to a new position, or changing their mechanics. I believe the same is required of Hall of Fame voters as the game evolves, so to that end, I modernize my own voting process.
