Does Alex Rodriguez still belong in the Hall of Fame?

Yankees’ star Alex Rodriguez is being suspended from Major League Baseball through the 2014 season — reportedly the longest non-lifetime suspension in baseball history -- for violating the MLB’s drug policy.  (He can play while he appeals, however.) He’s told others he deserves a lighter sentence. Some argue he still deserves a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame because he’s still a great player in a steroid era. After all, Willie Mays used amphetamines, they argue. Others say that letting him into the Hall would only encourage other players to use steroids. What’s your view?
