Well, it finally happened. Two of the greatest baseball players in the history of the game, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, were snubbed from being enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York after being snubbed by the hundreds of BBWAA members who cast HoF ballots.

These baseball writers who snubbed Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, as a whole, are the most self-important, bumptious, pompous, overweening, and egotistical group of writers on the planet and they’ve tarnished the legacy of the game more than steroids ever could. Every single one of them who used their votes or lack thereof to keep Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds out of Cooperstown deserves to be banished from the sport forever.

Two Of The Greatest Baseball Players Ever

Barry Bonds is probably the third greatest hitter in MLB history behind only Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron. He holds the single-season record for home runs (73), most career home runs (762), he hit dingers against 449 different pitchers, and managed 74 home runs AFTER he turned 40 years old. We could keep listing Barry’s incredible records but what’s the point?

Roger Clemens won the Cy Young Award SEVEN TIMES. He also won 354 games (9th all-time) with a career ERA of 3.12 and he recorded 4,672 strikeouts (3rd all-time). He’s one of only 7 pitchers in MLB history to throw a 1-hitter in the postseason where he won 2 World Series (also an 11-time All Star). They both deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. Everyone was juicing then. EVERYONE. MLB should’ve tested better and the voters that kept them out of Cooperstown should lose their credentials.

Naturally, baseball fans were PISSED.

So many of the nearly 400 ballots for Cooperstown are kept confidential. Many of the voters who snubbed Bary Bonds and Roger Clemens kept their ballots secret but in doing so it’s been pretty easy for discerning fans to figure out who they are.

Bonds and Roger now have other options. They could be voted in by a committee at some point in the future but the BBWAA did them dirty. Every single person who left them off their ballots should lose their credentials.
