    I really don't see him getting in. He will be just like Pete Rose. The trial did help him because some will feel that he didn't take the performance drugs, but I believe most will not. As far as his stats, with 7 Cy Young Awards I believe, without question. I really believed he should have taken the seat and spoke for his name. Since he didn't do that either, I can't see it happening. Perhaps, down the road sometime decades from now, but probably not.

    Not a chance.  Writers and other voters have jumped onto the pious cloud even though they loved the big numbers while Sosa, Palmeiro, McGuire, Bonds, Clemens and the other 'roid users played.

    Absolutely not.  Not with Curt Schilling and Craig Biggio on the ballot for the first time this year.

    Not on the first ballot. Will he get in eventually? I think so. But, to get in on the first ballot you have to have a pristine career free from the cloud of performance enhancers

    He won't make it on the first ballot, the writers will see to that. I think he'll make it eventually, likely on his last opportunity (15 years?) or through one of the special committee votes.
