In the debate over how history should view baseball players implicated in the sport's PED scandal, former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada adopts a hardline stance.

In an interview with CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann, Posada said players who were known to have used steroids should not be inducted into the Hall of Fame, including former teammate Alex Rodriguez.

"I don't think it's fair. I really don't. I think the guys that need to be in the Hall of Fame need to be a player that played with no controversy," Posada said.

Posada said he has not shared that with Rodriguez, and Rodriguez would be surprised to hear it.

He also said he resents players who didn't play clean and got records he could not get.

"The only thing that I can think is 2003. You know, I was close to the MVP. Didn't happen. Alex won the MVP and, you know, I think second, either Carlos Delgado or David Ortiz, I don't remember. But you know, I was almost there," Posada said. "You know what could have happened if, you know it's tough. It's really tough."

Posada talks about baseball and family in his new book, "The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes." See what he had to say about his relationship with "The Captain" Derek Jeter on "CBS This Morning."
