Nice to see this. I did a website vote on HOFers. And I
came to 9 votes with Barry and Clemens not in the

Consequently, I was the only person in the poll who
didn't pair Bonds and Clemens.

Nice rationalization of how guys who get to the 50-60% range start gaining momentum. The steriod guys are trending away from that magic range though, not towards it.

slightly better legal grounds (Bonds getting Indicted, Clemens not). Pure
