Steve Buckley joins Sports Tonight to discuss the 2013 candidates for the Baseball Hall of Fame and asks if anyone should be inducted this year.

Baseballthinkfactory.org currently projects no player will garner the 75 of votes necessary for election into the Hall of Fame.

The last time no candidate won the necessary 75 was 1996, and Buckley says the HOF voters that he talks to says it's likely it could happen again this year.

There are a number of players who Buckley believes will ultimately earn induction, but most of the players who would normally be considered a 'slam dunk' are those tainted by the steroid era and are therefore unlikely to garner even a significant percentage of votes.
