Vote: Would you send Bonds, Sosa or Clemens to the Hall of Fame?

Barry Bonds. Sammy Sosa. Roger Clemens.

Once upon a time, these players were unquestionably the best in Major League Baseball.

Today, those same names have been tainted with accusations of performance enhancing drug usage and conjure images of baseball's 'Steroid Era.'

These three players have posted some of the best stats in MLB history, but the accusations may keep them out of the Hall of Fame.

Some stats to consider from our friends at The Associated Press:

  • Barry Bonds is baseball's all-time home runs leader with 762 and won a record seven MVP awards
  • Roger Clemens ranks ninth in career wins with 354 and took home a record seven Cy Young Awards.
  • Sammy Sosa is eighth on the home run chart with 609.

Many have weighed in on whether these three, or other players that made their names during the time when PEDs were running through the league, should be allowed access to Cooperstown, but we want to know what YOU think.

Which of these players should make it into the Hall? Should they all be in there? Should none of them? Let us know by voting in our poll and let us know why in the comment section below!
