This whole thing is a joke anyway. He had no subpeona power during this investigation and no cooperation from the players union. It cost about $25 million to produce this piece of garbage as it turns out was headed by a person who quite possibly has a conflict of interest. Another huge blunder by the idiot of idiots..BUD SELIG.

Guess what, Bud Selig used to own the Brewers...

Mitchell is a director of the Boston Red Sox, as well as chairman of The Walt Disney Co., the parent of ESPN.

Mitchell said his role with the Red Sox will not create a conflict. "If, in any way, anyone associated with the Red Sox is implicated, they will be treated just like everyone else," he said.


That quote is from a March 2006 article.

Well I looked through the GM thread here and no one mentioned it. Oh and that quote is from him. So I guess I should believe it.


I'm just saying why make a big deal about it now when it was public knowledge 20 months ago? Cause no one thought his report was going to have any teeth and now they want to discredit him.

I knew this from day 1 and, based on his entire resume, I have no question that this report will be 100% objective.

Well people with senses of humor think I'm funny apparently (see. Everyone but you). Or maybe they just laugh at my annual Fantasy Baseball Drafts.

He couldnt keep Varitek off amongst other red sox alum

Obviously this has always had a bad air around it for some since it was announced (his "conflict" that is)

I wouldnt worry about it. Looking back sure maybe MLB shoulda have anticipated this in hindsight.

Considering that Varitek may be on the list then I'm officially retracting my "Mitchell is biased"
