Barry Bonds and Rogers Clemens were once again denied entry into the Hall of Fame.

The controversial duo who became synonymous for the steroid era during the late 90s/early 2000s were left out of the hallowed halls of Cooperstown, not by the writers this time, but by the Contemporary Era committee, which is comprised of former players, coaches and executives.

Both Bonds and Clemens received fewer than four votes.

Curt Schilling, another polarizing figure because of alleged steroid use as well as his extreme political leanings was also left out of the Hall of Fame.

Only Fred McGriff made it with 100 percent of the vote. The Crime Dog played for the Blue Jays, Padres, Cubs, Braves, Dodgers, and Rays amassed a .284 batting average and 493 home runs.

    Former Yankees legend Don Mattingly didn’t make it either.
