I'd vote in Vladdy and Chipper, and would think long and hard on Mussina. If you look back on his career he had some excellent numbers, all in the AL East.
Sax, I'd vote for Walker. True he played in Cooks but I think only 31% of his career ABs occurred in Cooks, but I could be wrong. And yes it inflates numbers but to me, it's still a valid major league stadium and I can't hold that against him. His defense and baserunning wasn't inflated by Coors. But I will concede that I might have a Canadian bias.
I am on the fence about Bonds. He was a hall of famer to me (as much as I could not stand him) before he ever took anything but it 2as obvious to everyone that he was juicing later in his career. On ability alone he was an all-time great.
As for Clemens, I couldn't stomach him either but I wanted to give him a fair look. The thing is, prior to going to Toronto he'd had some amazing seasons but his last 4 in Boston were mediocre at best. He went to Toronto at age 34, started juicing and won another 162 games, pitching into his 40s. I would have a difficult time voting him in.
