Baseball's juicers not the sharpest tools in the shed

Check out the canceled checks at the end of the Mitchell Report.

Note to pro athletes: when purchasing illegal steroids, it's probably best to make cash transactions.

What a list. It looks like a few "sure things" may have a tough time getting into the Hall of Fame afterall.

I'm surprised Piazza and ARod not on the list.

Just proves they were a bit smarter at the point of purchase.

You are mistaken Mark McGwire is not on the list of people named. This report is crazy though it leaves tons of questiosn unanswered like what is the punishment that these guys will get or not get. What does these mean for baseball in general? All his report did was open a pandoras box for baseball.

Nope - I am not mistaken.....I read a lot of the report last night and it may as well be McGwire's biography.....by my count he's on the following pages.

22,64,70,92,108,109,110,113,114,124,125,126,127,132,133,376,377


It's actually pretty interesting reading.

Again his name is not mention on the list of players.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3153646
Here is the entire of players caught and how they are linked. McGwire not on that list. I checked out those pages and McGwire is only mentioned in association with his taking of a legal supplement.

No surpirise but why go after those in the past instead of stopping players who are now playing.

And think some of them will be in the Hall of Fame but Pete Rose can not get in. Baseball has major problems but over the course of time baseball reflects what society is like at the time. 8)

I'd say the writers who vote for the Hall will have to change their minds on a few players based on yesterday's news. Everyone wanted to ban Bonds and McGwire for their possible involvement in juicing. Now that Clemens has been grouped in with these guys, I'll bet things change. I'd look for all these guys to miss on the first ballot but eventually make the Hall on the 2nd or 3rd ballot.

Nice post BlindWhiteHat-this will be interesting how it plays out. Just about all levels of play and sports has a problem with roids. :(

i think they need to take that report and shove it up Mitchell's @$$

he was just showing it off like haha busted

if I was Bud i would seriously tell that guy to get a life

Leave the active players alone and the retired ones well o well stuff happens and it wasnt offically illegal to take that stuff until like 05 wasnt it?
