Agree. And assuming he does come back and has to wait another 5 years, I think we will know by this year (or early next year when the voting comes) whether or not he goes in, because it should all come down to 1 player – Barry Bonds

I don’t see 1 making in without the other, or 1 missing it without the other

Either both get in, or neither get in.

Why is that? I don’t think there’s any argument that, if you exclude steroids, both are in the top 5 hitters/pitchers of all time. Both equally deserving (and equally undeserving if one chooses to say No)

Agreed. If you ‘include steroids’ both are chumps and shouldn’t be in the HOF.
