2. It was more like a big fat HELL NO!

Bonds was one of several players who had a cloud of steroids shrouding his candidacy into the Hall of Fame. He received 36.2 percent of the vote. He needed 75-percent.

Former Oakland A's slugger Mark McGuire was also on the ballot. He only received 16.9 percent of the vote.

Also on the ballot for the first time were Sammy Sosa and Mike Piazza, power hitters whose statistics have been questioned because of the Steroids Era, and Craig Biggio, 20th on the career list with 3,060 hits all for the Houston Astros.
