Increased support big for Bonds, Clemens

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens finally climbed above 50 percent in their fifth year on the ballot. The history of that number suggests the duo will find their way to Cooperstown in due time, David Schoenfield writes. HOF night winners/losers

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

A Roger Clemens voting oddity: He has now gotten more votes than Barry Bonds in all 5 years they've been on the ballot, but never by more than 12 votes. This year's totals: Clemens 239, Bonds 238. No idea how to explain that.

Former Red Sox fall short in HOF vote

In his fifth year on the ballot, Roger Clemens received 54.1 percent of the vote to miss the 75 percent threshold required. Curt Schilling (fifth year) saw his support fall to 45 percent, while Manny Ramirez (first year) debuted at 23.8 percent. Full results

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Manny Ramirez debuted at 23.8 percent, considerably less than Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, who were at 37 and 36 percent as ballot first-timers in 2013. Suggests voters drew distinction between post-testing cheats and players who tested positive during testing era.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Turns out Roger Clemens & Barry Bonds didn't make as dramatic a jump as we expected. Clemens went from 45.2 pct to 54.1, Bonds from 44.3 to 53.8. So both would need close to 100 more votes to get elected. Still, they were both around 36 pct 2 years ago. They have 5 years left on the ballot. And only Gil Hodges got this close with this many years left and didn't get into the Hall

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

For those who voted for maximum 10 players, Hall of Fame ballot will remain crowded even after the elections of Bagwell, Pudge and Raines. Jim Thome, Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Omar Vizquel among those first-timers next year.
