Every December and January -- and well a lot of times in the other 10 months as well -- we get into Hall of Fame debates. In recent years the conversation has an added element. That is in addition to debating the on-field merit of the candidates to be enshrined into Cooperstown many are now including whether or not a player used PEDs.

Some even include whether or not they think a player used PEDs. It has kept out surefire Hall cases like Roger Clemens Barry Bonds and others.

Here's the problem as outlined by former big-leaguer and current MLB Network analyst Eric Byrnes writing on his personal blog: It's selective. We don't know that there aren't current players in the Hall who used. In fact Byrnes says there's at least one:

Disturbingly not long ago I was having dinner with a former long time Major League player that spoke about the steroid use of a prominent Hall of Famer that played the majority of his career in the 70′s and 80′s… Ha! Not like I was shocked but damn… So many members of the Hall of Fame including this character have recently spoken out and condemned guys who have had ties to performance enhancing drugs saying there is no place for “cheaters” in the HOF… I just wonder how many of the other guys in the “Hall” were actually cheaters themselves?
