.... actually, I take that back, as I knew it was going to happen. I just can't believe that enough HoF voters were against letting them in just because of steroids when their pre-steroid careers were so ridiculous, especially after Major League Baseball turned a blind eye to the issue for about a decade in order to draw fans back. Not to mention that a lot of the players that started taking it did so during a time when doing so wasn't against MLB rules.

Just let players in regardless, who cares? Plenty of players in the Hall never had to face black opponents and a significant number regularly took amphetamines. So what, this is the steroid era. Everybody knows that, it's just one of the eras of baseball like the deadball era, the segregation era, the expansion era, the greenie era, etc., etc. No need for asterisks, everybody knows its already. At most, it just needs a mention describing why the batting numbers of the 1990s to 2000s were not proportional to what came before and after.
