YYYYAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! (and stay out!)

Barry Bonds is threatening to boycott the Hall of Fame if his 756 ball is put on display with the asterisk. I cannot emphasize enough how awesome this would be. Here's how I would feel.

Without getting into too much detail, it's my belief that everyone who admits to using steroids should be banned from the Hall. His records shouldn't be wiped — records are a measuring stick for greatness, but are not the only tool. He just shouldn't be included in the Hall of Fame. I'm not going to pretend everyone in the Hall should be there, nor do I believe everyone in the Hall played the game without cheating in some way shape or form. However, few players in the history of the game have so negatively and drastically affected the entire sport.
