The Baseball Hall of Fame ballot for 2013 was just released. Given these players alleged steroid involvement, should they be voted in the Hall?

Peter Rose deserves to get in...the steroid abusers do not.
Anyone that uses drugs/steroids to advance in their career should not be allowed in the Hall of Fame. The great ones should know better and not have to resort to using.
They should know better. But my point is that they had the numbers pre-steroids/PEDs. The others did not. The PEDs prolonged the careers of Bonds/Clemens. Even w/o the home run record, Bonds is a first ballot guy.
Yes, they were already great, so they had no business resorting to using steroids, even if it meant prolonging their career. That's just my opinion.
Isn't their talent in question? Without steroids they were just average players who would have never ended up on the ballots in the first place.
I agree. But, I think there should also be a special league for those who use steroids and a separate Hall of Fame for the pill poppers. I mean, without dopers, we may never see another 600 foot homerun. :0)
You are really funny...I laughed when I read your comment. They could have their own "Hall of Shame".
