Its a lot better to trade for him the day BEFORE the mitchell report than the day AFTER.

Probably factored into the decision.

Factored into the Oriole's thinking, knowing that they would get a lot less in return after. Again, the Astros look kind of silly.
Tomorrow they could have traded Scott for Tejada straight up, or maybe the O's would have had to throw in a prospect to get it done.

Not sure if there's an obvious Phillie on the list. Not a bunch of workout freaks, that crew. Are they even going back that far? I get the impression a lot of the info came from Radomski, so I'm thinking lots of mid to late 90s guys.
oh there's most certainly an extremely obvious steroid user on that phillies team that lost to the blue jays in the series.

The Mitchell Report exposes a "serious drug culture within baseball, from top to bottom," fingers MVPs and All-Stars and calls for beefed-up testing by an outside agency to clean up the game, The Associated Press learned Wednesday.

at work earlier we were trying to come up with names that aren't out there who we thought could be on the list. the pool includes piazza, ryan howard, jeff bagwell, tino martinez, darren dreifort, david ortiz and jose reyes.

winner gets 10 bucks... that's right... 10 bucks!
