Roid users shouldn't make 10-player HOF ballot ... at least not yet
January 8, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
Faced with a Hall of Fame ballot stacked with all-time greats, generational greats and just plain old regular greats, there's been a predictable chorus of complaints by voting sportswriters who've been forced by the 10-player limit to omit candidates they believe are worthy (though maybe not quite as worthy as the 10 they did include).
Sure, I like to complain as much as the next guy. But there are two main reasons I will refrain this one time.
First, we as sportswriters got ourselves into this mess by doing a poor job of covering steroids throughout what is now known as the Steroid Era. If it's the title of an entire era, don't you think it was maybe worth a mention or two?
