1. Should Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens be in the Baseball Hall of Fame?Pete Rose: has had more hits than any other player, but has been banned from baseball since 1989 for betting on his team’s games when he managed the Cincinnati Reds.
Barry Bonds: hit more home runs in a career and a year than any other player, but was accused of taking steroids.
Roger Clemens: won seven Cy Young Awards, but also took steroids, which has so far kept them from getting the 75 percent support of baseball writers needed for selection.
For determining a Hall of Fame candidate:
“Election is based upon the player’s record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played.”
But are the accomplishments of these three players so great that they should be admitted despite questions about their character and integrity?
2. Discuss the NFL offseason and some of the biggest moves. Do you think Robert Griffin III going to Cleveland will help or hurt him? What is the most underrated signing of this offseason? Do you think QBs like Brock Osweiler, Ryan Fitzpatrick, among others trying to command too much money? Are you against giving them a large sum of cash because they haven’t done much in their career, or is it simply the nature of the current market?
