Mitchell's Report-Some folks got slapped

This is a sad reflection on America's Past Time. So many of our young kids look up to baseball players. When baseball became big business and the money grew, so did the lies and deceit.

George Mitchell's report totaled 300 pages, plus many attachments, according to the person who read it. The sources of player names included Kirk Radomski, a former New York Mets clubhouse attendant who pleaded guilty to steroid offenses in April and says he supplied players with performance-enhancing drugs from 1995 to 2005, and a separate investigation led by the district attorney in Albany County, New York (source: International Herald Tribune)

The following is a summary of the names the report. (

I wonder what the next step is. I mean this is already huge, but their is so much more to come. You know they want the bigger names, and many people will have to "cooperate" to save their careers. This is not going to be good. However, I am relieved that actions are taken place. I have two sons and I don't know if athletics will be a great part of their lives, but I prefer that this is dealt with and resolved now. There is too much pressure on children today, and performance drugs just adds unnecessary pressure.
