Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens belong in the Hall of Fame

My latest at Medium:
Their association with performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), which led to federal investigations, is the reason they’re not in already. Many say they both cheated by using PEDs, which are illegal if used the way Bonds and Clemens allegedly used them.  
But federal prosecutors should hardly be the moral arbiters of their Hall of Fame credentials. What a person puts into his own body is not the business of the federal government (or any government). In any case, Clemens was acquitted and Bonds’s conviction was overturned.
3-minute read.
