Re: baseball Hall-of-Fame
I don't think personality is a criteria for Hall of Fame honors, TRH. The very first inductee, Ty Cobb, was undoubtedly the meanest SOB ever to play baseball. Barry Bonds was a far better player than any of the ones you mentioned (although I agree about Pete Rose); even long before he may have done steroids. I think he deserves to be in there, but probably won't happen until his final year of eligibility.
