And A-Rod captures a 10 year $275 Million contract. Sports just ain’t what it used to be.

Old news? Look at the names on page 145. Some of them I didn’t expect.

Juan Gonzalez though is not a surprise.

409 pages, 6.5 MB. He’s on about half the channels now like it’s the moon landing, and it’s like he’s reading it word for word. Like Dennis Miller says, if my yawns get any bigger they’ll have to start giving them hurricane names.

I’m reading the whole report. Is there a simple list of names somewhere? The report was only officially release a few minutes ago.

I just hope the folks that DIDN'T end up on the user's lists...
won't eventually be viewed as a bunch of suckers for having played clean.
(while some users gained extra advantages and those multi-million dollar
salary packages)

Just take all the sports records and put one great big asterick on it. There. Done. Who cares. Sports hasn’t been the same for years so I hardly even watch it anymore....some high school sports are fun...that’s about it for me.

How do we know this list is even true? It is based on the word of basically two individuals, in most cases with little or no actual proof.

True. There is no punishment just dragging people’s names through the mud for public amusement. It is wrong.

Sort of like watching a train wreck. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

That was a misprint. Search the .pdf and you will not find his name.

Pujols kind of overshadows Benito Santiago, the former Padre catcher huh? That guy looked like a bodybuilder behind the plate, if he ever made contact with the ball it would probably go 560 ft.

Well, we can replace baseball with Women’s Softball then? Everybody knows the game is quicker and the batters have to be even faster to hit those 65 mph fastballs at 43 feet away!

Brady Anderson. No kidding, that one was obvious. 50 hr’s for a leadoff hitter who never hit more than 21 before.

I just went through the report quickly. Didn’t see a lot of the names that NBC had previously released. For example, I didn’t find Varitek in the official report.

From Hotair: Update: Pujols, Sosa, Damon cleared?

http://hotair.com/archives/2007/12/13/report-bonds-pujols-clemens-mcgwire-sosa-pettitte-damon-giambi-on-mitchells-steroids-list/

Update: The plot thickens. MLB officials are disputing the report of who’s on the list but WNBC is standing by it. One hour until we know for sure.

Update: Here’s the Mitchell report, via the Smoking Gun. I see no mentions of Pujols

Neither is Brady Anderson. Or Jason Varitek. Those are the only ones I’ve look for so far.

I’d say that NBC list is a load of crap.

The report says only that Sosa was sent a letter asking him to come in for an interview. No evidence against him is presented.

PUJOLS IS NOT LISTED! He's one of the errors in the since retracted initial listing. I downloaded the 409 page final PDF and can search it and his name doesn't show up! I also searched for Cardinals and again found no Pujols! I think the only Cards mentions who are on their current 40 man roster are Ankiel, of whom Mitchell just repeated what we already know (MLB closed their investigation of him without taking any action) and Ryan Franklin.

GO CARDINALS

Mitchell? Isn’t he the RAT hack who made a big hash of his political career and has been honored as some kind of expert in everything for years by the RATs and the Drive Bys? I seem to remember his many gaffs as a pol and as a graft taker par excellence.

Before this, I had felt sorry that Pujols had been cheated out of the MVP award for a couple years by Barry Bonds. Now I no longer feel sorry for him. BTW, who came in 2nd in the voting for the AL Cy Young award when Clemens won it in 2003? That guy got cheated by Clemens.
