Who was NOT on the Mitchell report that surprised you?

Postby macdona1 » Fri Dec 14, 2007 2:53 pm

Personally I would have to go with Sammy Sosa. I have been waiting for years to hear him linked to some sort of steroid or HGH controversy and he has never been accused. Granted he was at the steroid "hearing" if you want to call it that so he is obviously under suspicion but I would think that after all these years someone would be able to find something solid.

Basically, who were you expecting to be on the Mitchell report that ended up not being named.

Seriously its not like this report got a bunch of great information. it basically focus's on two Clubbies that gave up some names.

It doesn't matter who was NOT on the report cause the report is a very small tapping of the problem
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I think part of the reason Sosa and a lot of foreign players were not on the list is because they probably bought their stuff from their country or some other Caribbean country, which would be a lot harder to track for Mitchell.

Exactly. This wasn't a baseball-wide inquiry into the use of steroids. It was a snapshot to say that baseball had a problem. And the two primary sources of information were the BALCO investigation and the federal investigation into a former Mets batboy. So there's no reason to expect anyone from any other club (or even other players on the same club) to be on the list or not on the list. The investigation wasn't formulated that way.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Given the years covered by the report I'm not surprised Sosa wasn't in it. I really expected Soriano to be on the report and kind of surprised he wasn't.
