2013 HOF ballot to feature controversial greats | MLB.com

In the cyclical realm of the annual National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot, there are years with only a few viable candidates, such as the 2012 election to be announced Monday, and others with several real possibilities. And there’s always a dash of bubbling conversation over who should get in and who shouldn’t.

Then there is the 2013 ballot, which promises to be a whole different ballgame.

A year before it will even be in the hands of Baseball Writers’ Association of America members who compose the electorate for induction, it’s clear the 2013 ballot is one that will change the landscape of how players are elected to join the greats at Cooperstown. In terms of epic production, celebrated accomplishments and, most telling, their stardom taking place at the epicenter of an era tainted by performance-enhancing drugs in baseball, this class is without peer.
