OK, you really are serious.

Fortunately that's an EXTREME minority opinion.

I don't mean that it should be IMPOSSIBLE for someone to get in despite "substances."
But fortunately not too many VOTERS feel it's not a factor.


I think that it's completely UNFORTUNATE that the greatest hitter of any of our lifetimes will likely not get into the HOF on the 1st ballot. But to each his own, I guess.

Remember, we were talking about BELLE.

Bonds is a separate issue.

True, but you brought up the issue of steroids. I simply said that PEDs should be a non-factor when determining whether Belle is a HOF player or not. Belle is probably not a HOFer, but it's because his numbers are just shy, not because he may have used PEDs.
