I don't like the idea of keeping a guy out of the HoF because of his personal politics. I do like the idea of keeping several guys out of the HoF because they were implicated in steroids. I suspect that Schilling will get in simply because of how close he got last time, but we'll see.

Barry Zito sure looked like a sure-thing Hall of Famer at his peak. Mark Buehrle was personally one of my favorite players of the 2000's (I attended his perfect game in 2009) and if he got in he wouldn't be the worst pitcher there, but I don't think he has the stats today's writers are looking for.

If they reconsider Pete Rose, I'm willing to listen on others like Schilling. Otherwise, don't spew hate speech is a pretty good reason to deny a guy for character reasons. And don't give me any integrity of the game garbage. Otherwise, an awful lot of Astros will be on the outside looking in at some point in the future.
