Hall of Famous Steriod Junkies

Jim B. in the comments to the last post raises an interesting issue.

"I can at least say he never cheated as a player. How many of our modern baseball stars, some more than likely soon to be hall of famers, can say the same?"
Given that you have an entire generation of ballplayers who used steroids with the tacit approval of the league, do any of these folks -- the McGwiers, the Sosas, the Bonds, the Clemenses -- players who were clearly were the best in their day and who achieved amazing feats while juiced, make it into the hall? To say put them in with an asterisk raises the question of what the asterisk means.
