    OT / Mitchell Report in the hands of Selig



    Just read in the NY Daily News ....

    The report will contain "60-80 current, former and retired players" who have used or are using 'roids.

    Pretty sad.

    I know a lot of you will disagree with me on this. Level the playing field and legalise steroids. To me it's just as silly as marijauna being illegal when alchohol is legal.

    Problem there is for every major leaguer there are a couple hundred kids who would be ruining their health trying to get to the level to play prosports. When they dont make it, their bodys will be left a mess.

    Exactly -- if you heard the testimony of the parents who had seen their kids die as an apparent result of steroid use, you might have a different take. I'm referring to the Congressional hearings of course, which tended to focus on the MLB guys like McGuire and Raffy, but the testimony of the parents of these kids was much more moving and meaningful to me than McGuire's lame "I'm not here to talk about the past" and Raffy's blantant lies.

    I don't think we know enough about steroids yet to hand them out like tootsie rolls.

    While I understand your point, I will disagree. I am a parent and I believe it is my responsibility to keep my son from using steroids the same way it is my responsibility it is to keep him from using illegal drugs.

    yeah, I disagree with that as it is completley ludicrous.

    Pot and other drugs are depresants for the most part. Steroids are stimulants. Steroids give you a physical advantage, the other drugs dont.

    In a world where you're judged on your physical performance, steroids have no place. A lot of the names on the list are hot heads and have had behavior issues in the past.

    By the way, I noticed that Brain Roberts and Miguel Tejada made the list ....

    Two thoughts here. Maybe Tejada did indeed give Palmiero a bad needle.

    And does this mean Brian Roberts is actually 5'4" without the 'roids?

    All I can say is it's a great thing we got rid of Tejada yesterday. Sucks about Roberts, but you kinda figured the way his name has been brought up a few times. Most of the other former/current O's aren't really big surprises to me.
