You will certainly see at least one recent star on that list, unless there are only a handful of names contained in that report.
Do you think we'll see a recent superstar though? Somebody who's still considered among the best in the game? That's what I doubt.
Now that would be very surprising. First of all, it would be extremely tough to find out whether the best and richest players in the game ever took steroids without somebody snitching on them. Mets clubhouse attendants like Radomski willing to spill the beans aren't going to be everywhere, most of the people in the know would just keep quiet. In fact, I believe I remember reading Mitchell had trouble finding witnesses until he came across Radomski. Second of all, I wouldn't put it past baseball to try to keep that kind of information about a star player quiet. They might say they have no control over a report like this, but I certainly don't believe that.
