Hall Likely to Pass on (Suspiciously) Big Mac

by Jay Allbritton
Looks like Mark McGwire is not going to get into Baseball's Hall of Fame on his first try.

From the AP:
For one glorious summer, Mark McGwire was bigger than baseball itself. America stopped to watch each time he came to the plate, and cheered every time he sent a ball into orbit. He could do no wrong, it seemed. Surely he would be a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame someday.

And then came that day on Capitol Hill. Over and over, the big slugger was asked about possible steroid use, and his reputation took hit after hit as he refused to answer, saying he wouldn't talk about his past.

Now, with Hall ballots in the mail, McGwire's path to baseball immortality may have hit a huge roadblock.

The Associated Press surveyed about 20 percent of eligible voters, and only one in four who gave an opinion plan to vote for McGwire this year. That's far short of the 75 percent necessary to gain induction.

(more)
If the writers won't vote him in, Sammy Sosa, Raphel Palmeiro and other suspicious power hitters have no shot.

Barry Bonds might meet a different fate, simply because his numbers were Hall of Fame even before he started to cheat.

VIDEO: Gee, I wonder why anyone would juice up.
