Mitchell Report Gambling

Yeah, I know, trip report. We'll get to that. But in the meantime, today is the day the Mitchell Report on steroids in baseball is released. DonkeyPuncher and myself are going head-to-head in a bet on who can name the most players. The rules: come up with a complete lineup (including on starting pitcher and one relief pitcher), the person who has the most players named in the report wins! Only active players allowed, and they can't be people who have been under the pump before (i.e. no Bonds, Sosa, Sheffield, Giambi ) etc.

Here is my lineup:

C: Pudge Rodriguez
1B: Kevin Millar
2B: Jeff Kent
SS: Miguel Tejada
3B: Scott Rolen
LF: Hideki Matsui
CF: Carl Crawford
RF: Magglio Ordonez
P: Kenny Rogers
RP: Kyle Farnsworth

Update: JJOK is in too. Bring it on!

Update II: JJOK dipped out (stupid work). It looks like DP's and my lineups only featured one person apiece with new stuff on them: Tejada (for me) and Gange (for him). Somewhat disappointing all round, really. I was fascinated by Lo Duca, Knoblauch, David Justice, Mo Vaughn, Brian Roberts. Clemens and Pettite were leaked before the report came out. Don't expect to see Fernando Vina on ESPN as an analyst in the near future, either.It will be interesting to see what the fallout is, that's for sure.

I should also point out that most of the new information came from two dudes who sang. Only two. How many more people like them are out there?

  • The answer to the retorical question is None. At least until they bring some real lawful pressure to the mess.

    Expecting the MLBPA to go along with action is expecting the Senate to vote a pay cut for themselves. Or maybe curtail lobby money.
