I’m pretty sure my regular readers know my position on this.
NEW YORK — Steroid-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were denied entry to baseball’s Hall of Fame, with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in four decades.
Bonds received just 36.2 percent of the vote, Clemens 37.6 and Sosa 12.5 in totals announced Wednesday by the Hall and the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. They were appearing on the ballot for the first time and have up to 14 more years to make it to Cooperstown.
Craig Biggio got the most votes? He might make it next year?
Well… I suppose you could make a case for him.
Next year we see Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine. I suspect you’ll see Greg Maddux get the highest percentage of first time votes of any player in decades.
