|Time for the writers to get over the steroid era.|
On Wednesday, the Baseball Writers Association of America announced that for the first time since 1996 no player on the ballot received the necessary 75% necessary for enshrinement. The vote was less for who should be in the Hall of Fame and more a vote to continue grinding the ax that the writers have been sharpening for the past decade.
While baseball's steroid era was a black eye for the sport, it is time to move on. The writers simply will not allow that to happen.
Make no mistake, the last guy I want to see honored is Barry Bonds. Not only is there a trail of evidence longer than the home runs he deposited into McCovey Cove that he used steroids, but he was also possibly the most self-absorbed, egotistical player to don a Major League uniform, and that is saying something.
