Basball reviewing the Mitchell Report

Major League Baseball has begun to review a draft of George Mitchell's report on drug use in the sport, one of the final steps before the results of his 20-month investigation are released. We haven't seen this many people nervous for their career since the Larry "Flynt Reports" of the final months of the Clinton administration. Baseball officials have said for several weeks that management would be able to examine the report on performance-enhancing drugs a few days before it is made public to make sure it does not contain any confidential information that if released would violate the collective bargaining agreement between players and owners. If you thought the poo hit the fan last week with the Bonds indictment, wait until you see the fallout from this!! It's going to be an interesting off season.

This is a dark day in baseball. Some names I had expected, but Pettite definitely wasn't one of them. I had suspicion about Clemens, I wondered how someone could throw like that at his age. Then you look at other guys, and their sudden drop-off in performance makes a lot of sense.

There's been a lot of debate about which Clemens cap he'd be wearing on his plaque when (maybe if now) he gets elected to the Hall of Fame. Should it be an Astros cap, Blue Jays cap, Red Sox cap, Yankees cap--or best yet how about a BALCO cap? That'd be my vote.
