For only the second time in four decades, baseball writers failed to give any player the 75 percent required for induction to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, sending a powerful signal that stars of the Steroids Era will be held to a different standard. "I think the steroids guys that are under suspicion got too many votes," Gossage said. (AP Photo/Ed Betz, File)
