The Mitchell Report

I wanted to title this post "LOL!!!!!!!!!" after I read that Clemens is in the report for receiving steroids before and during his time with the Yankees, but I thought that took my irrational hatred for the man too far. I have plenty of questions, though, which I will try to type out in a manner that is readable as I giggle uncontrollably:

- What are the chances that a Santana trade goes down today to try to steal some headlines? 99%?

- Anyone wonder why Tejada was traded yesterday? And why Pettitte officially signed his deal this week?

- Is Clemens a hall-of-famer based on just his years in Boston? I think that's a valid question now, especially since that's the defense everyone uses for Bonds when they talk about his candidacy. Bonds was a hall-of-famer before he likely began juicing. Clemens? Possibly, but I don't think it's a slam dunk.

I realize that I probably think this is more fun than you guys, but wow - today's going to be enjoyable until a Red Sock is named. That's gonna sting.

Not exactly an "earth shattering" list, as had been advertised. At least, not if you've been paying attention for the last few years. The "big" names that I hadn't heard before are Justice, Knoblauch, and Kevin Brown.
