The Coming Hall of Fame Disaster

John Feinstein makes a depressing observation in his recent column on the indictment of Roger Clemens:

Even before [Mark] McGwire admitted his guilt, his name had appeared twice on a ballot for the Hall of Fame. He never received more than 25 percent support, much less the 75 percent needed to gain entry. The same fate almost certainly awaits Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, Palmeiro and even Rodriguez.
