I feel Piazza used and i'm guessing thats why he's last on your list but Biggio shouldn't get a pass either. Biggio went from hitting 3 or 4 homeruns a year to hitting 20-25 a year. The fact that he played with one of the biggest steroid teams in baseball really makes me wonder about him.
Alan Trammell deserves support and I hope he gets in someday but he's not the second most deserving on your list.
If your gonna vote for these guys then Bonds is a easy number one. If your deducting for steroids then take off everyone except Raines and Trammell.
What does the order have to do with anything? This was in no particular order. This isn't MVP voting...
plus Fenway and HOF weekend
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
