This class is so stacked that you can easily find more than 10 deserving candidates even if you don't count the steroid guys. Pedro, Big Unit, Smoltz, Bagwell, Mussina, Biggio, Raines, Edgar, Piazza, Trammell, Walker....that's 11 right there.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
