The Hall of Fame in Cooperstown will announce the Class of 2017 on Wednesday. Who should be inducted? Barry Bonds? Roger Clemens? Vlad Guerrero? Mike Mussina? Tim Raines? (I said no because of the character clause).
We were told this day would come. The day, the time, the beneficiaries were to be determined. But, rest assured, the day would come when the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) would move past the Steroids Era.
Roger Clemens believes he’s deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.
The numbers suggest Clemens has a valid argument. He pitched 24 seasons in Major League Baseball, compiling 354 wins and 4,672 strikeouts. In 13 seasons with the Boston Red Sox, Clemens won three Cy Young awards, one America League MVP and tied for the team’s record with 192 wins.
