Remember the stink made in January when Aaron Sele received a vote for the Hall of Fame? That was nothing compared to this.
Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are among 19 newcomers on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot, joining a collection of steroid-tainted holdovers that include Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

For today’s By The Numbers, I thought I would take a look at the eight sluggers in history who have, thus far, clubbed 600 or more home runs.
The huge hits are even more than the Yankees hoped for when they got the good-natured Soriano in a trade with the Chicago Cubs in late July.
Baseball knew it had a PED problem in the mid-1990s. Had Selig truly cared, he would have blown the whistle and sought measures to clean up the game.
We aren’t angry at A-Rod because he makes the most money, but because he told the most lies. His montage of malfeasance is galling even by our subterranean standards.
The Orioles slugger says he’s chasing baseball’s true single-season home run leader, Roger Maris, “and I think most fans agree with me on that.”
Rocker is still making noise, a decade after the disgraced pitcher last played in the big leagues.
Since the Midsummer Classic will be preceded by a home-run contest on the previous day, I offer this fantasy all-time Home Run Derby called “The Ultimate Blast.”
Sammy Sosa thinks he and fellow steroid-tainted star Mark McGwire belong in the Hall of Fame. Slammin’ Sammy also said the Chicago Cubs should retire his number, and he left open the possibility of running for president of the Dominican Republic.
The 1993 National League Rookie of the Year will address the rumors of steroid use in his new book, “Long Shot,” co-author Lonnie Wheeler told Newsday.
“What kind of a society and what kind of world are we living in where we reward these guys for cheating? What kind of message does that send? And you know what? If any of these guys ever get in, I probably will never go back to the Hall of Fame.”
Major League Baseball will test for human growth hormone throughout the regular season and increase efforts to detect abnormal levels of testosterone.
There wasn’t a positive drug test or smoking syringe implicating them. They weren’t dragged in front of committees on Capitol Hill to explain themselves, and their names haven’t been tarnished by clubhouse trainers.
