The Baseball Hall of Fame inductees will be announced next week, and there's a lot of suspense leading up to it.
Why? Three letters. PED.
Players such as Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa are all on this year's ballots, and many BBWAA members are debating on whether or not they deserve to be voted in this year, next year, or any year.
There are also names like Jeff Bagwell, Mike Piazza, and Curt Schilling among others
That leads us to our UNO's Sports Tonight Question of the Day:
Who should be voted into this year's Baseball Hall of Fame?
Let us know in the comments section and be sure to check out UNO's Sports Tonight at 6:30 p.m. to continue the discussion.
The Patriots take linebacker/safety prospect Kamu Grugier-Hill from Eastern Illinois in the seventh round with pick No. 208.

After the Clippers were elminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night, a disappointed Paul Pierce told ESPN that he was "50-50" about retirement.
In a video after Portland's Game 6 victory posted on oregonlive.com, the former Celtics captain said his "heart is broken" by another playoff elimination.
Pierce signed a a three-year, $10 million contract to return home (he grew up in Inglewood, Calif.) and play for his old coach Doc Rivers in Los Angeles. He'll be 39 next season and coming off the worst season of his career. Pierce averaged 6.1 points, 36 percent shooting and 18 minutes a game, all career lows.
