Halls of Fame: inconsistent criteria of writers.

Baseball writers are inconsistent.

They won't vote into the Baseball Hall of Fame some who played in the steroid era, however the era is defined, but also think that the federal government is wasting money prosecuting Barry Bonds for lying to a grand jury and Roger Clemens for lying to Congress about their use of performance enhancing stuff like steroids.

Some of those same writers also vote for Halls of Fame for football and/or basketball, yet never withhold their approval based on a football or basketball player's use of performance enhancing stuff like steroids.
