I know how I did it; I did it right. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens gained momentum, but were once again denied election into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Tuesday’s Hall of Fame results are prompting a re-evaluation of whether Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will ever be voted into the Hall of Fame.. Clemens received 253 votes while Bonds got 251 among the 425 ballots cast. “I’m so happy that we do have a few of our current teammates. Mariano Rivera is regarded as the greatest closer in baseball history. Clemens was named on 59.5 percent of ballots cast by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, falling 66 votes shy of the 319 needed for induction. Barry Bonds is a seven-time MVP. Mike Mussina played for the Baltimore Orioles from 1991-2000 and the New York Yankees from 2001-2009. It was awesome. While the two have Hall of Fame-worthy statistics and were by far the best players in their generation -- if not in the modern era -- their careers have been clouded by their association with performance-enhancing drugs. Ex-teammates Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd, Rich Gedman and Tommy Harper joined Clemens on the field, along with one of his Cy Young plaques and his 1986 AL MVP award.

Bonds is the all-time home run king with 762 and a seven-time MVP. It is the personification of death by paper cut.

Clemens won 354 games, which ranks third all-time, and is a seven-time Cy Young winner. “At the time they were shooting the scene I couldn’t get away. He will always be a winner in our hearts.”. “I was supposed to be Seabass,” he said. So Cam jumped in. Mike Mussina never won a Cy Young Award, but he finished in the top six in voting nine times. While they've enjoyed incremental gains over seven years on the ballot – Clemens debuted at 37.6 percent and rose to 57.3 percent last year and Bonds began with 36.2 percent and was at 56.4 percent in 2018 -- the results from Tuesday's announcement indicate a slog toward the 75 percent needed for induction that likely will come down to the wire. Clemens, who was named by his personal trainer Brian McNamee as a steroid user, denied PED use during a congressional hearing and, later, a federal trial.

Edgar Martinez is one of only 10 players in MLB history with 300 or more homers, 500 or more doubles and 1,000-plus walks with an average over .300 and an OBP over .400. “I’m not sure what list you’re talking about and I wouldn’t get into speculating. What remains to be seen is if they move the chains forward in the ultimate quest of the 75% super-majority that they’ll need in the future.

With David Ortiz announcing Wednesday that the 2016 season will be his last, Clemens was asked if he thinks Big Papi will eventually be enshrined in Cooperstown. It’s where I grew up.”. The two are forever entwined in their Hall candidacies, which began in 2013.

The Hall of Fame prospects of two of the game’s greats are more problematic given the results of the 2019 election.

And while players can no longer pick which hat they’ll be enshrined in, if Clemens does get that call to Cooperstown, his choice would be a Boston Red Sox cap.

Bonds was involved in the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) doping scandal in the latter part of his career, but he denied any link. That’s something you can never take away from me. Clemens still has the “Ass, Grass or Cash” hat from the movie, which Fred joked is the hat he should wear into the Hall. The conversation shifted to Clemens’ appearance as Skidmark in the Farrelly Brothers comedy Kingpin, and Clemens revealed that he was actually cast as Cam Neely’s famous Seabass role in their film Dumb & Dumber.

BOSTON (CBS) — Roger Clemens is still waiting for his call into the Hall of Fame, but he isn’t letting that wait define his career.

Edgar Martinez was inducted into the Hall of Fame in his 10th and final year of eligibility, winning 85.4% of the vote. The PawSox presented him with pair of commemorative prints and a pair of shadowboxes with 20 baseballs apiece, each ball inscribed with a victim from one of his two 20-strikeout games.

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens did not make the Hall of Fame last year and will not this year either.

Mariano Rivera retired with 652 saves, the most all-time, and a 0.70 ERA in 141 postseason innings.
