Joe Jackson, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and a few others all are not enshrined in Baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. But there is no way these are really 'Almost' guys. They were clearly not just great players, but were among the greatest players of their era as well as all-time. Do they deserve to be members of the HOF? We think they do but even if they remain out, how can they be non-entities?
Having a specific area in the HOF - a Corridor of Controversy where controversial players and their exploits and transgressions are analyzed and reviewed would be the right thing to do - at least! Making believe they don't exist is...well, dumb in our view.
Could a player be in both the Corridor of Controversy AND the HOF? Listen to us talk about that too.
