Question Of The Week: Should Roger Clemens Be Elected To The Hall Of Fame?

Former New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens is in the news again, as he's making a comeback of sorts by pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. His reappearance on the mound brings up many questions: What is he doing? He is trying to make a full comeback, with a return to the major leagues his goal? Is he attempting to restore his reputation? Does he want to push back his Hall of Fame eligibility? Does he just love baseball that much that he has to keep playing? Is he insane? Whatever the reasons, he's one of the game's biggest lightning rods and is up there with Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa as Exhibits 1A, B, C and D in the PEDs/Hall of Fame debate. He has the numbers, but will the shadow that casts over him be too much to overcome? Where do you stand?
