Considering steroids have been proven to be harmful for your body, I would say this is a foolish statement. If they find out years from now that heroin improves your ability to hit homeruns would you say inject away?

Bingo. If this report does name 50, 100, 150+ names or whatever, it is going to cast a huge pall over major league baseball.
One could argue that the "huge pall" is already over major league baseball. Unfortunately.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

One could argue that the main reason they even started with this investigation was because of the reaction to Barry Bonds and his run to the record. Of course, he'll be on the list. He's one of the few guys practically guranteed to be on there. The fact that he'll be named in this will not affect his case of perjury at all, though. I'm guessing the prosecutors have pretty much all they need to try to make a case there already, a few more witnesses saying they believe Bonds took PEDs won't change anything one way or the other.
Edit: I don't even have to make that argument. The actual reason this investigation began was because of the Bonds-BALCO probe. I suspect that a fairly large percentage of the report will be about exactly that.
