It is symbolic that on a day when a major storm is supposed to strike that the Mitchell Report will come out and perhaps give us a blizzard of names of drug abusers in the sport.
Who? Well, that’s in a few hours.
It is also symbolic there are to be three statements today from three venues: Mitchell, MLB and the Players Association. So much for unity in dealing with the problem.
Even before the first page of the 300-plus page report is read, there are holes and questions. How impartial can Mitchell, who has ties to the Red Sox, be? With no subpoena power, there’s information not made public. Who will be the fall guys, the GM’s for signing the players? To what accountability have the owners and MLB, who wanted the bashers to sell seats?
I’ll be in Manhattan today covering the story, and plan to post frequently on the blog.
