Sounds right. The way I see it, PED issues aside, I think Bonds, Bagwell, Biggio, Clemens, Piazza, and Schilling are so far above the line that it shouldn't be an issue. Although the first person that I told that to said that he wasn't sold on Schilling.
Including that, the 14 guys that you listed were guys that I could vote for and wouldn't be upset if they were listed on a ballot.
Then there's Jack Morris and Lee Smith. I couldn't vote for them, but I think I understand why other people do.
