I took PEDs and I'm not proud of it..but people that think you can take a shot or a pill and play like the legends on that ballot need help.

Though he was the only one to broadcast his feelings in Comic Sans, Roger Clemens wasn't the only ballplayer to use Twitter after no players were elected to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday. Many past and present players made their voices heard with most saying the BBWAA results were "a joke."
Take a look:
38.8? Cool number. Surreal to even be having this conversation. Sad to see Murphy not in, Character should/does matter. #3Dalemurphy
