Roy Halladay blasts Barry Bonds’, Roger Clemens’ Hall of Fame worthiness

Two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay isn’t shy about voicing his opinions about suspected PED users being voted into the Hall of Fame.

The 203-game winner will have a strong Cooperstown case himself in a few years, but he doesn’t believe Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds belong in the Hall. Halladay tweeted this Wednesday morning:

Clemens and Bonds have been on the Hall of Fame ballot the previous three years, with neither ever getting even 40 percent of the vote (75 percent is necessary to earn induction). However, both players appear to be picking up some momentum this year, at least on the ballots that have been made public.

Few would dispute that Clemens’ and Bonds’ on-field accomplishments are Hall-worthy, but both players’ candidacies –€“ along with those of Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and others –€“ have been clouded by PED suspicions.

The 2016 Hall of Fame class will be announced Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET.
