    Four players in the list are in the top 100 in career WAR. I am not including the steroids users Bonds and Clemens. Who are the four in the top 100 in career WAR?

    Manny, Larry Walker, I want to add Rivera but I'm not sure if a closers WAR would be that high. No idea on the 4th.

    Roy Oswalt should get in for his performance against the Reds alone.

    Rivera will be a shoo-in. I would also vote for Edgar. I have a soft spot for Helton as he was my first fantasy draft pick, leading me to the first of four straight NL-only league titles.

    Bonds and Clemens are two of the greatest players ever. The fact that they aren't already in the Hall of Fame makes the Hall of Fame a joke in my opinion.

    I'd agree. It was part of the game. Listening to people from around the game talk even some of the players we know as "clean" were playing dirty. Make it a separate section of the museum if you want, but include them.

    It does a heart God to see the support for Bonds and Clemons making the HOF on here. I have a hard time taking anyone serious if they believe those two guys shouldn’t be in.

    Kind of like I feel about Pete Rose. Forget what he did off the field, what he did between the lines is what the Hall should be about.
