At the risk of starting a debate over whether the MLB Hall of Fame remains a remotely all-encompassing chronology of America's pastime, it bears mentioning that the greatest players don't necessarily receive a plaque in Cooperstown.

Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa would all be in the Hall of Fame right now if not for allegations of artificially enhancing their performance.

Rumors and/or evidence of steroid use will keep at least half a dozen of today's MLB stars out of the Hall of Fame, while incessant injuries, inconsistent performance and a handful of other factors will also contribute to the demise of these 25 big-name players.
