That's a better question. Who were on the teams of those named that were good players? That's a pretty good implication that they probably weren't users.

Brady Anderson - He hit 210 HR in 15 years - 24% of those HR's came in one season. Hmmm??

Again, anyone who is surprised that Player X was not on the Mitchell Report does not understand the Mitchell Report.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Nobody.

Given the limited # of resources and compliance in this report, I'm surprised at how many names did turn up. I think a major error people are making is the presumption that because somebody is not mentioned in this report, that they are not linked to steroids in any way... I don't even know how that conclusion is being reached...

A-Rod

Jose seems to know something about him. And so far, for the most part, Jose has been right.

I'm sorry, Rockets, but that's almost as bad as the MFY fans trying to make out like Mitchell is protecting Sox players. If Canseco actually had ANYTHING on A-Rod, he wouldn't have sat on it. The innuendo he's coming out with just screams 'I'm still relevant! Look at me!' I think I'd go so far as to say that if I had to bet on one great player from the 90s NOT being roided up, it's him. I mean, seriously, a A-Rod steroids story with anything approaching substance behind it would be so huge, someone would have outed him.

Your completely right. I have no doubt Jose is still trying to capture the publics attention anytime he can. But I just remembered hearing something on WEEI a couple of months ago where Jose mentioned he "had something on A-rod" and that it would be in this upcoming report. And since stories like the one that involves Brian Roberts was included (pure hearsay "I thought I heard him say something"), I thought a story about A-rod would be in there (from Jose).
