End of Discussion: Is the Biogenesis Scandal the Last Straw for Baseball Fans?

No: The bad guy doesn't always win.

If you're interested in keeping the Hall of Fame clean then you can at least take comfort in the fact that baseball voters have done their part in keeping dopers like Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, and Sammy Sosa from earning their bust in Cooperstown. On top of that, the public consciousness has done well to make sure that guys like Rafael "I have never used steroids. Period." Palmeiro have been quietly shuffled away to the corner in their retirement. A part of the reason that these guys doped was because they wanted their names to live on forever. When we deny them that immortality by refusing to retire their numbers or enshrine them, then we can truthfully say that we as the fans won.
