How do you think fans will react to the named players who did performance enhancing steroids as compared to those having done HGH? Will people make a distinction? It seems like HGH is starting to be viewed as "no big deal" since it doesn't directly affect performance and is not considered a health danger (at least not as much so).
As to the question of pitchers vs. hitters... my guess is that more than half are pitchers, but that most of those pitchers will be named as HGH users since recovery time is paramount to pitchers.
I think the bigger question is how many current players as compared to retired players will be named? It seems like a lot of the names being suggested are retired players. If there are 80 players named, but only 20 are current players, then I think the impact will be a lot less. If every team in baseball has 3-4 big names on the list, it could get ugly (at least initially).
