With this great resource called the internet, people don't use it to back up their claims, .
It gets very muddy on who to allow and why. When steroids/PED's became rampant, etc, etc.
I think all those with worthy numbers from the Steroid/"Live Ball" era should be allowed in the Hall. This includes Bonds, Clemens, McGwire, Sosa, Palmeiro, etc.
It is an important era in baseball history.
I'm a lazy person, no way am I going to go get stats and ****
McGwire was a power hitter, but he didn't have THAT kind of power until he found the right juice.
They've said Sosa wasn't a great player, that's been said by plenty of analysts. Then they find out his bat was corked.
As for PEDs/Steroids....I wouldn't be surprised if 80% or more were using them during that era. I don't think they should be punished by not joining the Hall of Fame. Selig knew what was going on and he was getting paid because of it. It's almost as if players needed to do it to keep up with other players. So they don't need to be banned from the HOF but it should count as a strike against them.
