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 Yankees 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. Mike Mussina (fourth year) saw his support climb to 51.8 percent. Jorge Posada is off the ballot after receiving only 3.8 percent of votes. Full results

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
