Keidel: Don’t Hose Pete Rose

Kallas: Ryan Braun: Innocent Or “Just” Not Guilty

Keidel: The Case Against Roger Maris

The debate isn’t at all about Roger Maris’s merits for the Hall of Fame, because he has none. This is a microcosm, a debate we all have about someone from your youth, parsing preteen idolatry from reality.

Blyleven: HOF Voters ‘Made Their Point’ On Steroid Era

All-Star sluggers Rafael Palmeiro, Jeff Bagwell, Mark McGwire and Juan Gonzalez didn’t come close in Wednesday’s election. No telling if they ever will, either, after Hall voters sent a clear message: The drug cloud isn’t going to cover Cooperstown.
