Aaron Sele got a vote
Mitch Williams calls sabers seam heads, since they look at era+.
He said record dictates it, so Morris is in.
Love MLB channel, but i get tired of Jon Heyman, Tom Verducci, Mitch Williams spouting crap.

So Bonds got 36.2% of the vote and Clemens got 37.6%
Who are the 8 people who voted for Clemens and not for Bonds and what is their reasoning?

What he says is roids was cheating, and greenies, etc. aren't.
Cheating is cheating.
Verducci should do hair commercials, and get out of the bb field.

Verducci is a complete tool and his reasoning rarely makes any kind of sense.

I'm fine with not voting in someone who has failed a steroid test. That is very different than not voting in someone who has suspicion surrounding them. While I fully believe these guys did steroids I don't think you keep them out of the HOF just because people think they did something. Either there is some sort of real proof or there isn't, don't vote on hearsay. Piazza not getting a vote because of his back acne is just outright stupid.
