Hall of Fame rejection of Bonds, Clemens may be temporary

The shutout pitched by the Baseball Writers Association of America in Hall of Fame voting results announced Wednesday was not a shocker. A pattern had been set in previous years with the dismissals of Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Jose Canseco and Juan Gonzalez: no player connected to performance-enhancing drugs has come close to clearing the threshold of 75 percent support to gain election to the Hall. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens certainly brought next-level credentials to the debate this time, but the message remains the same, given that they couldn't clear even 40 percent of the vote.
