3. They should both be in.

They should have been first ballot guys. Bonds in particular.

4. I Admit That I'm Biased

As a Dodgers fan, I never liked Bonds. He always struck me as being a bit of a jerk. I know that shouldnít be a factor, his performance should be. But given the roids, Iím not going to lose sleep either way.

6. It's not a final shot. It's only the last time the writers vote on them.

If they donít make it this year, the veterans committee can vote them in down the line.

7. That's right, final shot by ballot among the Baseball Writers' Association of America

The veterans committee does have the option, but to be rejected by the writers for 15 years would be quite a statement.

Perhaps it would be more fitting for the veterans to be the final arbiters anyway. Will Bonds and Clemens' peers forgive them or want them to serve as examples forevermore?

9. Bonds beat the steroids rap a number of times

He was under a magnifying glass. He hit the longball better than anyone else.
