FanSinceBoggs said:I love the fact that a scumbag like Palmeiro is off the ballot. This is the best way to handle PED users: hope they get less than 5% so that the media doesn't debate their candidacy. Hopefully, Sosa and/or McGwire will get less than 5% next year. As much as I would like to see Bonds and Clemens get less than 5%, I don't think it is likely. However, it is even less likely that they ever get 75%.
PED users like Pettitte and Manny may get under 5% in their first year of eligibility.
As part of the application process for the FBI, the applicant must pass a lie detector test. I don't know why MLB can't implement something similar for HOF candidacy. Players who don't submit to a test, or who fail a test, will not be eligible for the HOF. That is one way, perhaps the only way, to distinguish genuine HOF players from frauds.
So when will you be campaigning for Willie Mays's expulsion from the Hall of Fame?
