    “The Yankee Analysts wonders if Roger Clemens is trying to delay his Hall of Fame eligibility”

    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.

  3. I’d sooner let in Bonds than I would Clemens.

    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.
