Will anyone care?

The Mitchell report on performance enhancing drugs being used in baseball drops in about 2 hours.

Supposedly he names about 20 players having used steroids and other products, many of whom are/were MVPs and Allstars.

Will anyone care though? I am not a huge fan of baseball, but don't most people want to see higher scoring games with more homeruns? Will they care how those hits are/were generated?

Will the major media cover this with the depth and indignation it deserves or will they reserve that only for cycling (Floyd Landis, Vino etc.)

I hope that this will wake people. Doping is prevalent in all sports.

people seem to care more about the individual players than the sport as a whole.

Remember back in the day when we were lead to believe that the only cheaters were the communist bloc countries? East Germans, Chinese, Bulgarians were all notorious....and the good ol' US of A would never cheat?

I'd say that we pretty much are the worst of the bunch right now. We've had em cycling, track, football, and now baseball.

Say it aint so.

There will always be dopes in sport. Take cyclocrossers....
