    I agree 100% on the All-Star game. Manny was out for more than 2/3 of the games prior to the All-Star break, so even if the fans vote him in, he shouldn’t play. And regardless of how MLB feels about it, Manny should have the personal integrity to decline the spot on the roster if he is voted in.

    As for the Hall of Fame, I’m torn. My first thought is that if he or any other player used performance enhancing drugs, they shouldn’t get in. On the other hand, so many of my favorite players over the last few years have tested positive it’ll break my heart not to see them (otherwise perfect HoF candidates) not get in.

    In a classic double standard, I’ll be disappointed if Manny doesn’t get in, but I think Barry Bonds should never be allowed in. What can I say? Life-long Dodger fan.
