5. I find it absurd that Bonds isn't in.

There's been enough reporting for us to know the story by now, which is that he only started using PEDs after he became frustrated with all the attention McGwire and Sosa were getting in '98, despite him having a pretty remarkable season in his own right. But even if you discount or even ignore what he did from 1999 on, particularly the power surge and the 73 HR season, he's still one of the greatest players of all time and a first ballot lock.

You can probably make the same argument with Clemens, although he seemed to be in decline his last couple of seasons in Boston, before magically turning things around when he signed with Toronto.
