should steroid users be in Hall of Fame

I lean against it. This writer leans for it. Yes other substances have been used by other players. Alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines. Surely many players were not role models in their personal lives. Certainly the achievements of the steroid using players are still unbelievable. Yet it is also obvious Bonds, Canseco, McGuire, Sosa, Rodriguez, and the rest would never had come close to the same numbers without performance drugs. Surely Clemens would not have pitched as long. I never hear it but I also wonder how Nolan Ryan could throw at 95 miles and hour pushing 50. Well I suppose Satchel Page was that old.
Anyone with any thoughts?http://bleacherreport.com/articles/195079-steroid-users-in-hall-of-fame
