I read @ another blog this list is not reflective of the Mitchell report. MLB sees lots of errors...
Still looking for Carmen San Diego....
No real surprises. Pujols was a nothing in the minors, that all-of-a-sudden, became a major home run hitter in the majors.
Many of these guys have broken down badly lately, physically. That's the risk you run, when you do this stuff.
And, Darryl Kile is on the list. Hmm.....
IRL 2009: "Cars you can't see, driven by drivers you have never heard of, on a network you don't get"
"I'd hire your grandmother, if she brought a budget"- Bankrupt Indy Car team owner Tyler Tadevic, to Curt Cavin in December, on the tough standards he looks for when "hiring" driver talent.
I'd wait for the real one.
"The number of threads by one poster in the OT is getting a little out of hand, IMHO. "
"In the land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness...If we speak..we say it the wrong way; if we do not speak we are cowards…."
Lots and lots of former and current Yankees are going to be on the list.
Rich Garces??? Say it ain't El Gaupo!!!
"You see Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care."
So is Ken Caminiti ...Originally Posted by Jimmy Hendricks
Are there any other deceased on the list ? If not, pretty coincidental that they were (Astros) teammates.

Considering Mitchells' relationship with the Red Sox, that's not much of a surprise.Originally Posted by Jimmy Hendricks
Since the original list is so far off, I suggest it should be removed!Originally Posted by Kid_Charlemange

Is this really an important issue...seriously...
No, and judging by attendance at baseball stadiums throughout the country the past few seasons, even baseball fans couldn't care less.Originally Posted by hdolan
Concede that a great deal of players and teams were helped by artificial means in the era, keep the testing system going, and play ball.
Congress seems to think so...Originally Posted by hdolan
And Congress' ratings are how high...this is a non-issue...if adults want to use something that will bulk them, why should we care...most professional athletes are in a different reality than the rest of us...it has been my experience that fans only care about results...unless, of course, it's the other guys...then breast beating sanctimonious attitudes become the norm...for example New England...People cheer known felons in professional sports...whats a few drugs...Originally Posted by MoparsRule
Exactly... which was sort of my point.Originally Posted by hdolan
Good point then...Originally Posted by MoparsRule
John Rocker! On the list?
I never thought he would be in any kind of hot water.

Truthfully, since HGH wasn't even a banned substance in MLB until 2005, I don't see that its that big a deal, with that particular thing.Originally Posted by hdolan
MLB is as much to blame for this is as the players are.
This is a disgrace for MLB.
It's just not a surprise.

I'm no Jose Canseco fan but when it is all said and done he will have exposed many who condemned his coming out about steroids as being liars.
Bunch of losers in my opinion. They have sent the wrong message to kids....not just in the fact that drugs were involved. How can we expect them while growing up not to question and doubt those who accomplish anything?
I guess the days of real men playing the game is over. I say to players if you aren't man enough and can't cut it with the talent you have leave the game so at least you'll have your health and dignity.

No power to subpoena players. No requisite by MLB forcing players to cooperate.Originally Posted by Slim
For every player named, figure another dozen unnamed.
I wish I knew - Dennis "Cutty" Wise
When its game time, it's pain time! - Terrible Terry Tate
Many of these players will pay the ultimate price.....
...having their baseball cards taken from protective plastic and ending up in the spokes of bicycles.
I would expect there will be no penalty or negative outcome for any player on the list. Baseball was dragged kicking and screaming to this point. They don't care.
All rides are bought. But occasionally the currency is talent.
It's rather ironic that you make that statement on this forum, considering the beating some of us Hoosiers have given the Pacers for their "problems" and the head coach at Indiana University for his.Originally Posted by hdolan
