Steroid Era

The Mitchell Report Comes Out

With the release of the Mitchell Report this afternoon (it can be read in it's glorious 409-page entirety here) comes the obvious question: who was juicing?

For a die-hard baseball fan, finding out which of your heroes cheated (and probably is still cheating by using growth hormone, as the report now suggests is the enhancing drug of choice) could be nauseating or enjoyable.

Of course, some of the names we already knew or suspected (Bonds, McGuire, Sosa, Giambi, Canseco). The newly confirmed cheaters include Roger Clemes, Andy Pettitte, Chuck Knoblauch, Eric Gagne, and Troy Glaus.

Losers (actually some won championships): all.
