Roger Clemens Likely Won’t Get Into Hall of Fame on First Ballot, But It’s Hard to Imagine Cooperstown Without Him

The most recent MLB Hall of Fame voting may have been the calm before the storm, because when the voters are asked to decide who belongs in Cooperstown the next time around, there's going to be plenty of controversy before a single vote is even submitted.

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds are among those who will be on the ballot in 2013. Voters have shied away from inducting those linked to performance-enhancing drugs so far, but Clemens and Bonds are by far the biggest names when it comes to suspected PED users.

Because of the skepticism, NESN's Peter Gammons doesn't think Clemens will get a Hall call right away. However, Gammons does feel like it would be strange to not have The Rocket get in eventually.
