I'm getting close to saying fuck it on the PED guys, (Bonds, Clemens, Manny) but still mulling it over.

Right now I'd probably vote for Jeter, Schilling and Omar. He was the AL's Ozzie, played forever, and IMO his defensive brilliance is Hall worthy.

I think there is room in the Hall for a great fielder, one of the best fiedling SS ever, and a guy who played for over 20 years on the strength of his glove.

I let in the 'roid guys who were generational HoF worthy talents when supposedly clean - Clemens and Bonds, Manny waits a bit - along with the two HoF worthy short stops,  Vizquel and Rafael Furcal.

Well...

the Cleveland Manny was a 33-115-.313 player, on average

How is this not at least the equal of the pre-steroid Bonds?
