I'm more concerned that people are continually leaking federaly sealed documents.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I have the same concern. I don't even see the point of releasing the names. It's doing more harm than good to a sport that's trying to rebuild it's image.

I don't really care, aside from the valid point Nic made about the documents.

That said, I really don't another media circus around the team. They're already distracted enough.

Couldn't the MLB just release all the names? Take a big PR hit once, instead of this trickle down effect. Maybe they figure by the 12th leak, nobody will care anymore.

Dodgers seem to have acquired George Sherrill. Hopefully not for much.

Probably propects. I heard they were pretty high on Bell. I'm sure someone else is in the deal too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So far the only one with the scoop is Ed Price, and that's through his Twitter.

Baseball will continue to suffer as long as there is this "anonymous" list that has now taken on almost mythical properties. MLB needs to just have a blood-letting then move on. We all understand that there were a great number of players, some big names and some not, who were taking some sort of of PEDs, which may or may not have given them some type of competitive advantage. We now test for such, and the system works for the most part (see: Manny, JC Romero, etc.).

I want to have the blood-letting, then move on so I can watch some damned baseball and not tired old hack writers bellyaching on TV and radio shows about it!
