Deciding who is Hall of Fame worthy is always a great debate in any sport, but especially in baseball.
And part of that is because of the steroid debate.
Some baseball writers are dead set against voting for anyone who has been implicated in baseball’s shady drug world.
Others have found some grey area and have jotted down the names of drug cheats on their Cooperstown ballots.
Voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame ends on New Year’s Eve and the inductees will be announced on January 8th.
First time candidates for induction include 4 time Cy Young Award winner Greg Maddux, 2 time winner Tom Glavine and 2 time AL MVP Frank Thomas.
All three should be slam dunks, but will they all get in next year?
Maddux and Glavine will be first ballot Hall of Famers, it would be a travesty if they weren’t.
You can make a case that Thomas can wait another year, even though he was one of the most feared hitters in the batter’s box.
Craig Biggio and Jack Morris — who’s on his last year of eligibility — nearly got in last year, but will most certainly be past over in this year’s voting.
And you can forget about Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa making the grade this year… if ever.
