2011 MLB Hall of Fame Induction: Pete Rose and Eight Immortals Who Never Get In

Sunday marks the induction of Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. Neither one are first ballot Hall of Famers but have stood the test of time (Blyleven much longer than Alomar) to finally hear their names called.

Unfortunately, baseball has just concluded an era, the like of which will never be duplicated: the steroid era. Some of the best individual and career numbers were put up during this time and will be tainted with the idea of "cheating" marked all over them. Because of this, there will be players who maybe would have been borderline hall of fame players without "the juice" but now will not be in at all due to their involvement or ties to PED's.

Out of the "unlucky nine" that are mentioned on this, only two have no ties to PED's, but they do have ties to gambling. Congratulations again, Bert and Roberto. Unfortunately, the following guys won't be with you soon.
