I don't see anything that says hall of famer in his numbers. He had 5 or 6 great seasons and couldn't stay on the field for the rest.

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds are statistically some of the best players in the history of baseball.

Oh but they were clearly taking drugs everyone else was (including Jeff Bagwell who just got in) so they can't get in :uhh.

Alternate question:  how many of the newbies will get bounced from the 2019 ballot because they can't get 5% of the vote?  Last year, 16 out of 19 got bounced.  Only Pudge, ManRam and Guerrero made it past the first year.
