I have mixed feelings about the Mitchell report. Yes, I'll be interested to see who is on it just like anyone else. My question is, what good does that do baseball? Yeah, a lot of current and former players will be on it, but they aren't going to take away any statistics or awards. It will expose a lot of players as cheaters, but big deal, it's not like that will change things.
Hundreds of players have taken steroids and they can't suspend every player who has been named. I see no point in this report, if baseball really wanted to do something about steroids, they should have banned them earlier. It may satisfy the curiousity of baseball fans, but it doesn't correct the past.
The thing that has me really curious is if Mitchell will name any Red Sox players. Supposedly every team will have a player named, and a lot of big names will be included. Mitchell is a long-time Red Sox fan and works for the team, will he name players from his own team? And I don't mean some fringe player from 1996 or 2000, but some a big-time players. I don't think he will do it.
