The Mitchell Report was released today and there were no current Tampa Bay Rays named as suspected users of Performance Enhancing Drugs. Some will look at the lack of Rays on the list and exclaim that it “explains a lot”. There are several former Rays on the list, including Tim Laker, Adam Piatt, Jim Parque, John Rocker and Jose Canseco. The entire report can be found HERE.

    Mitchell is a former US Senator.

    Said former senator likely to still have friends in congress.

    Many members of congress are likely to be good “friends” with Ted Lerner, owner of the Washington Nationals.

    Elijah Dukes was recently traded to the Nationals.

    Coincidence? I. think. not.

    Actually Jim Parque received his roids as a memeber of the Devil Rays. He falls into the I sucked before and I sucked after category. You Jim Parque are a moron.

    Besides the laugh line, it’s actually not a surprise that a team wouldn’t have any current players in the report. Only about 30 of the 80+ players named are current players, and there are only 30 teams. Also, Kirk Radomski was the main source for the investigation–he named 53 names; because he was based out of New York, he had most of his contacts with Mets players, Yankees players, and their ex-teammates.

    Generally, if Bud Selig had been more intent on securing the participation of the Players Union, we might have some more hard evidence and would certainly–if the implications of the Mitchell Report are correct–have multiple names from every team.

    YAY!!! This makes me so happy. I’d rather be ashamed for losing than ashamed for cheating…not that I’m ashamed.

    “What’s a steroid?” So Ralph Wiggum.
