Kudos to Sammy. May the powers that be choose not to asterisk your membership.

It's a no-brainer... in. Like Barry. Like McGwire. Like Palmeiro, even, as far as I am concerned.

I vote him in, but of course he wont because of all the suspicion around him. To me hes innocent until proven guilty.

I think it was on Baseball Tonight last night where someone said that in a recent poll of the writers who do the voting, some 50% said they would not vote him in. You could be right... and it's a damned shame.

I agree that it's shame he won't get in on the first try, but my guess is he will on the second or third time. By the way, I liked what you said about Bonds on the Blog Talk cast. One thing to remember about Bonds though, he had a book written about him, Sosa did not.

Definately IN! How could anyone even question that? I think Fred McGriff should be a hall of famer, 493 lifetime homeruns. So, if I think he should go, Sammy should definately go!

I reluctantly vote "In". Innocent until proven guilty, but I cannot shake that government hearing out of my mind where he all of sudden needed a translator. Remember that folks? Plus, I don't think he gets in if McGwire doesn't. Maybe I feel this way because I used to love watching Sosa in the 90s when he played for the Cubs and I feel betrayed. His numbers are there and he was one of the best of his era. "In".

If McGwire doesn't get in, then Sosa shouldn't get in... but this isn't a statement against McGwire. It is a statement against the ridiculousness of not electing the guys who saved baseball after the 1994 strike... steroids or no steroids.
