Mitchell Report Coverage

Posted by Matt on December 13, 2007

**UPDATE** We’re now hosting the “Mitchell Report” — View it: mitchell_report.pdf (Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view which is a free download here: Adobe.)

If you are looking for conciseness, I have seen preliminary lists come and go here: WNBC

WNBC Link thanks to Condo — check it periodically as they seem to be working with two sources close to the Mitchell Report.

Condo’s Updates – Prior to Mitchell Report’s Release

**UPDATE** American Legends Blog >> Names from Mitchell List has the list of names that were originally reported on WNBC’s list. Check here to see if any names you may be curious about are on the list!

**UPDATE** At this time, the WNBC link above is NOT showing the names of the players included on the list. WNBC out of New York has said they are working closely with their 2 sources in order to put a more ‘correct’ list up and the names should be back up momentarily. Check back often as we will be bringing you as much coverage as we can on this monumental day for steroids and baseball.

After seeing some of the names, I felt obliged to put up this link again:

The Genius Of Jose Canseco

Condo and I will be around for some rolling updates. Feel free to chat it up in the thread or to just drop your thoughts on us.

Below is more steroid coverage than you care to read and its all we got – well organized for your needs…

Links with old commentary:

An Open Letter To All Major League Pitchers, by Matt – April 3, 2007: This was one of the first posts on the site when I was merely testing out the system but it is interesting to read it now that the record has been breached. My views have not changed much on the issue but my overall message is a moot point now.

The Genius Of Jose Canseco, by Matt – April 11, 2007: This is an in-depth look at what Jose Canseco brought to the table with his tell-all antics in Juiced, the research may surprise you. And now, more and more names are popping up in allegations from Canseco to positive tests from Major League Baseball: Alex Rodriguez, Neifi Perez, etcetera. It is interesting to note that seemingly roughly 75% (not scientific by any standards) of names linked to steroids by random testing, or Jose’s mouth, are of Hispanic descent, Bonds not withstanding. I will have to follow up this article when Canseco releases his second tell-all memoir, Vindicated.

Hey, Look At Me, I Am Barry Bonds’ Brother!, by Matt – May 16, 2007: One of the shortest pieces you’ll find here yet no other article has seemed to cause as much controversy as this one. It is more of a knock to Bobby Bonds than it is to Barry, but take from it what you will. For reasons unknown to me, and it certainly isn’t because of ground shattering content, this has become one of our most-viewed articles reaching well over 2,000 page views. I thought it was funny but it seems to have rubbed others the wrong way.

Barry’s Crucible, by Josh “Charlie Hustle” Stankovich – May 17, 2007: Playing the part of the voice of reason in this one, “Charlie” offers one of the best pieces you’ll find here regarding any sport and one of the best pieces you’ll find regarding Barry Bonds anywhere. “Charlie” doesn’t try to be flashy when he speaks from a different angle than you usually expect; this piece is the ‘must read’ of the bunch and may encompass the sentiments of some of the middle-of-the-road Bonds supporters. This article is still very relevant.

Twenty Years Of Testosterone, by Matt with help from “Charlie Hustle” – May 18, 2007: This was my personal, sarcastic follow up to the controversy sparked by Hey, Look At Me, I am Barry Bonds’ Brother! and Josh and I think it is a fun piece. We write things based on what we find hilarious between us and usually we’re the only ones that end up finding it funny but hopefully you will enjoy it too.

Bud Selig’s Dictatorship, by Matt – June 26, 2007: I attempt to take Bud Selig to task regarding his handling of the steroid situation and, more importantly, his dealings with Jason Giambi, who seemed to be a bit of a scapegoat. I can only claim to attempt to take Selig to task, you can decide how worthy it is.

Who Wants To Be A Commissioner? by Josh “Charlie Hustle” Stankovich – August 2, 2007: A three-part post that looks at all three professional sports leagues’ commissioners and their handling of their leagues’ respective controversies. The portion on Bud Selig more than applies to this situation and feel free to participate in the comments section of this particular article. We now know that Selig was present for the tying home run but not the breaking home run and celebrated about as much as I would at a funeral; an interesting situation to say the least and this piece a close second ‘must read’ piece of this group.

Bonds Did It, by Matt – August 5, 2007: I couldn’t have been more mum on the topic of Bonds tying Aaron than I was the morning after; it isn’t really worth a read because there isn’t much TO read but it is interesting now that he has broken the record how many places like TNB has seen the milestone come and go without much fanfare.

Think Steroids Have Ruined Baseball? Think Again. by Matt  – October 4, 2007: My feeble attempts to put a positive spin on this year’s season amidst the negative publicity of steroids and Bonds’ home run chase. I have taken a pretty hard line on the steroids issue and this column was also an attempt to work an apathetic stance in to things and strictly concern myself, and others, with simply the game itself and not the scandals. You probably won’t like it and/or you’ll disagree, which is fine, just read the comments in the article’s thread as most issues have already been addressed.
