I smoke therefore I am!
Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa will have a tough time getting through. The writers are especially adverse to Bonds for all his issues with them. Maybe when they get to the "Veterans Committee" process, Bonds and Clemens will have a better chance. Sosa probably won't ever get one, since he has the corked bat issue and the PEDS speculation.
