I wouldn't say I'm happy about it but he has been linked to Grimsley in the past so it isn't really a surprise. If there is anything else in the report about him I would be very interested to read.

That's the big thing to keep in mind about this list. There isn't a great deal of information yet on to how the various players are linked with the information. Until the full report is released everything is still just speculation on what the involvement is supposed to be.

Just a major FYI. That is the list circulating the internet. It did not come from MLB and has not been substantiated. In fact, deadspin has a quote on there from a MLB official who said that the list is "not entirely accurate." So let's not go too crazy indicting everybody on the list, ok? ;-)

I mean, it's not like I was ignoring the obvious evidence against him. I was just hoping the evidence was wrong. :-/

Is Arod going to be on the list? I think Canseco mentioned him in the past.

I was thinking about it last night and the closest I could come to someone that would surprise me would be Greg Maddux but I can honestly say anyone being named would shock me.

I find it interesting that 3/4 of the rumored names are hitters. I would have thought more than 1/2 would be pitchers.

Also - I am curious to see the details of who did HGH vs. PEDs. I think there will be a huge amount of "yeah, but he only did HGH" excuses out there.
