(NECN) – Let’s talk Hall of Fame.

Do Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling belong in Cooperstown?

It’s sure to be a huge debate because of drug allegations.

Kevin Walsh from Comcast SportsNet says Barry Bonds will get in because he had Hall of Fame numbers before he started taking a drug.

Roger Clemens is number 9 on the all-time list of wins and will get in, according to Walsh.

Walsh says forget about a guy like Sammy Sosa because his really good numbers came after the so-called steroid era.

“I don’t think he has a prayer of getting in.”

Walsh thinks Schilling gets in because of his post-season record.

“I don’t know if he’ll be in right away, but he’ll get in at some point.”
