Neither Barry Bonds nor Roger Clemens got voted in the baseball HOF. I don't think they should ever be let in. Nor should Sammy Sosa. Nor should Mark McGwire.
And because of them, the writers couldn't think straight and didn't vote anyone in for induction. Idiots.

i just find it ridiculous that she and the writer said she caught him cheating. wtf?

cheating might be what caused them to seperate, but once he moved out and in with his new girl and they are no longer together, cheating is no longer an appropriate definition.

No, but she's still angry over the cheating, so it's still cheating. To her.

I looked at her photo and thought, OMG, she's six years older than me and looks like hell.

That's in her crazy head. What's the writer's excuse?

Good catch. While some would argue that since they were legally married, it was cheating, I think many people -- including some who would not date until their own divorce was final -- would say that the relationship was over and separate households were estalished, so it isn't cheating.

I don't know who else new was on the ballet this year, but I don't think anyone else was first ballet HOF material.

But for steroids, Bonds, Clemens, and Sosa would surely be first ballet HOF inductees. They are some of the all time greats without a doubt, but they cheated. The thing that bothers me is that it diminishes all the past accomplishments of HOFers and players who played with them ... Especially someone like frank Thomas, who played the game without cheating.

Frank Thomas was standing behind me one time at a bulls game (back in the glory days for the bulls). That guy was so corn fed ... He didn't need roids. These other guys needed them to put on the muscle mass to hit the HRs they did. Very few men can get that big without cheating. They just don't have the bone structure or the amount of testosterone to get that big.

Look at pictures of Barry bonds and Sosa when they were say 24. They were not big guys.

I don't think men go from having a normal to slender build at the age of 24 to being absolutely huge in their late 20s into their 30s. Especially athletes who are likely working out and lifting regularly in their early 20s. It's not like they were couch potatoes who suddenly started taking care of themselves, such that this could explain the incredible increase in muscle mass.

Guys like Pujols, Frank Thomas, Jim thome, were always big boys and that's why they put up big numbers without the juice.

Bonds and Clem's woulda been HOFers without the juice, but Clemens would not have pitched as long as he did and bonds would not have hit as many HRs or broken the HR records.

Sosa ... I'm not sure. Maybe he woulda. I can't rule it out. A few feet can often times make the difference between an out and a hr.
