Pedro Martinez: Bonds and Clemens are Hall of Famer’s

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Former MLB pitcher Pedro Martinez believes Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens should be voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Martinez, along with Clemens, Nomar Garciaparra, and broadcaster Joe Castiglione were all inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame on Thursday and spoke out about the issue.

"With all due respect to everybody that votes, I'll have to say Roger and Barry Bonds are two guys that I think had enough numbers before anything came out to actually earn a spot in the Hall of Fame," Martinez said. "I'm not quite sure 100 percent how close they will be before all the things came out, but in my heart, if you asked me before any of that, I would've said, 'Yes, 100 percent,' without looking back.

"It wasn't just the individual performances. [It was] how they dominated the time that they came up and stayed in the big leagues until those things happened. I believe they have a legit chance, and I think, with time, the voters will take into consideration what they did previously," Martinez continued.

Clemens was in attendance at the ceremony, but decided not to comment on the issue.

"I don't know if it's that important," Clemens said. "It's not going to change me as a person. I tell people I've got bits and pieces of us there now. We go visit those people and they're great to us, but it's not something I sit up and worry about every day.

"I'm far too busy to worry about something like that. I know what I did in my career and how I did it, and I did it right. I can't control what people think or people that don't look at facts."
