As the baseball world awaits Hall of Fame election results to be announced on Wednesday, former Toronto Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay is letting people know where he stands.
The retired right-hander took to Twitter very early Wednesday morning to slam Hall eligible players Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens with this strongly worded message.
When you use PEDs you admit your not good enough to compete fairly! Our nations past time should have higher standards! No Clemens no Bonds!

Bonds, baseball’s all-time home run king, and Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young winner, are among the tainted stars of baseball’s Steroids Era.
Both players are in their fourth year on the Hall ballot and will be eligible for up to six more years.
Halladay and Clemens were Blue Jays teammates for a very short time in 1998, as Halladay made his first two major league starts in September of that year.
The two aces went on to become division rivals during Clemens’ time with the New York Yankees in 1999-2003 and again in 2007.
