Dark Day for Baseball

The Mitchell Report was released today, naming the baseball players accused of using steriods or HGH. It is a long list. The Yankees feature prominently on the list. How unsurprising. I'm guessing that Mrs. Giambi, the mother of Jeremy and Jason isn't very proud of her boys today. I don't see how she could be, seeing that they both ended up on the list. I'm saddened to see Mo Vaughn on the list. I'm not shocked, but saddened. Eric Gagne? Well, something was obviously wrong with him this season since he came to the Red Sox. My guess? He stopped using them in the Fenway clubhouse. That would explain why he sucked so badly.

The whole thing makes me sad and angry. Angry that these ridiculously overpaid men abused not only their own bodies, but their fans by cheating. I just wish they would come out and admit they took these drugs and show some remorse. That's not going to happen, however. Yes, I understand that they're under extreme pressure to produce every game. But cheating is never the answer and sets a horrible example for younger players and children who idolize their baseball heroes. Shameful.

The only hope I have of these players being punished is if they are kept out of the Hall of Fame. Cooperstown is better off without cheaters.

And to bring it home (to me in the midwest, that is) my own Milwaukee Brewers are negotiating with Gagne since they lost their closer, Francisco Cordero.

What? Someone is interested in Eric Gagne after the year he had with us?

Some of the big names are really not a shock, but Andy Petitte really surprised me.
