Bonds’ vote total slips in second year of HOF eligibility

In his second year of eligibility, former Giants slugger Barry Bonds saw his Baseball Hall of Fame total dip from 36.2 percent to 34.7. Controversy over how to evaluate stars tainted by the Steroids Era continues to impact the vote totals of players with stellar statistics.

Roger Clemens dropped from 37.6 percent to 35.4 and Sammy Sosa from 12.5 to 7.2.

Former Giants second baseman Jeff Kent received just 15.2 percent of votes in his first year of eligibility. Other former Giants Moises Alou (1.1 percent), J.T. Snow (0.4 percent), Armando Benitez 1 (0.2) and Ray Durham (0 percent) are no longer eligible for election after receiving less than 5 percent of votes.
