Vote: Rafael Palmeiro Tests Positive

Palmeiro has 3,018 hits and 569 home runs.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro, who recently got his 3,000th career hit, will be suspended by Major League Baseball for testing positive for a banned substance.

In March, when Palmeiro testified before a House committee investigating steroids in baseball, he denied using steroids. But the results of his most recent drug test were positive, which means he will serve a 10-day suspension and have his Hall of Fame credentials questioned by fans and media alike.

Was Palmeiro a Hall of Famer before testing positive? Has your opinion changed? Should a player who tests positive even be eligible? Cast your vote now!
