Not sure how one voter justified voting for Clemens but not Bonds

Sure, but the only reason those two wouldn't be at the very top of a voter's list is the steroid thing. And that is a yes/no dynamic--either it is disqualifying or not. So if it is not disqualifying (and it must not be if they voted for Clemens), how is Bonds not at the very top of that voter's list? If the 10 people is limiting, and PEDs are not disqualifying, it is one of the other marginal players who should be a victim of the 10 player limit...

Some voters refuse to vote for them because of the suspicion. Other won't vote for Bonds because of his attitude toward reporters Baseball writers are some of the biggest crybabies in the industry and have some of the biggest egos and thoughts of utter self importance because of the sport they cover.

I'm bummed that Lee Smith didn't get in and dropped off the ballot after this year's voting.
