The Mitchell Report recently came out and it was to provide information on the latest topic of steroids and baseball. The full report is 409 pages long and within those pages you can find a lot of baseball players that got named. I decided I would go through and list all the players, so people can check to see if any of their favorite players made the list or maybe one from your favorite baseball team.
The complete list of baseball players named in the Mitchell Report: Manny Alexander, Chad Allen, Rick Ankiel, David Bell, Mike Bell, Marvin Bernard, Gary
Bennett Jr., Larry Bigbie, Barry Bonds, Ricky Bones, Kevin Brown, Paul Byrd, Alex Cabrera, Ken Caminiti, Jose Canseco, Mark Carreron, Jason Christiansen, Howie Clark, Roger Clemens, Paxton Crawford, Jack Cust, Brendan Donnelly, Chris Donnels, Lenny Dykstra, Bobby Estalella, Matt Franco, Ryan Franklin, Eric Gagne, Jason Giambi, Jeremy Giambi, Jay Gibbons, Troy Glaus, Juan Gonzalez, Jason Grimsley, Jose Guillen, Jerry Hairston Jr., Matt Herges, Phil Hiatt, Glenallen Hill, Darren Holmes, Todd Hundley, Ryan Jorgensen, Wally Joyner, Mike Judd, David Justice, Chuck Knoblauch, Tim Laker, Mike Lansing, Paul Lo Duca, Nook Logan, Josias Manzanillo, Gary Matthews Jr., Mark McGwire, Cody McKay, Kent Merker, Bart Miadich, Hal Morris, Daniel Naulty, Denny Neagle, Rafael Palmiero, Jim Parque, Andy Pettitte, Adam Piatt, Todd Pratt, Stephen Randolph, Adam Riggs, Armando Rios, Brian Roberts, John Rocker, F.P. Santangelo, Benito Santiago, Scott Schoeneweis, David Segui, Gary Sheffield, Mike Stanton, Ricky Stone, Miguel Tejada, Derrick Turnbow, Isamel Valdez, Mo Vaughn, Randy Velarde, Ron Vilone, Fernando Vina, Rondell White, Jeff Williams, Matt Williams, Todd Williams, Steve Woodard, Kevin Young, and Greg Zaun
So did you find any surprises of a name on the list or a name that didn’t get added to the list? I don’t think it surprised too many to see names like Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmiero on the list. There was some stars that did surprise me. Since I am an Atlanta Braves fan the Dave Justice, Kent Mercker, John Rocker and Matt Franco were some of the names on the Mitchell Report that surprised me. Some speculation had came out earlier about Paul Byrd doing steroids, so I wasn’t surprised to see his name on the list.
I wondered how many New York Yankee players would get on the Mitchell Report and I was surprised to not see Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter get named to the famous Mitchell Report. There were some Yankee players on the Mitchell Report; Andy Pettitte, Hal Morris, Jason Giambi and Gary Sheffield were some of the New York Yankees to make the Mitchell Report. Mariano Rivera has been a very dominant closer for a long time in baseball, but his name didn’t get mentioned in the Mitchell Report.
The Boston Red Sox is another team that I really wanted to see how many Red Sox Players were on the Mitchell Report. Mo Vaughn, Eric Gagne and Roger Clemens were the Boston Red Sox players that made the Mitchell Report. So I guess based on the Mitchell Report the New York Yankees have had more help with steroids than the Boston Red Sox. I guess that’s why the Yankees have won more World Series than any other team in baseball.
There are some guys that made the list that I have never heard of before. I don’t think I know Howie Clark, Paxton Crawford, Jack Cust, Josias Manzanillo, Cody McKay, Bart Miadich, Stephen Randolph and Jeff Williams. If you know any of these players, then please chime in and let me know if these guys still play or if they are just young and haven’t really made an impact in the big leagues yet. I really don’t have a clue to these guys that were named on the Mitchell Report.
The Mitchell Report did name a few big stars like Matt Williams, Miguel Tejada, Paul Lo Duca, Troy Glaus, Brendan Donnelly and Kevin Brown to the list on the Mitchell Report. There were also some bigger stars that I have already mentioned that was on the list too. If you’re one of the baseball players on this list and you’re reading my blog right now, please let me know your thoughts on the Mitchell Report. All baseball players that have played want to leave any comments here, feel free to do so. I really would like to have a player’s opinnion on the Mitchell Report and feel free to add anything to the topic of steroids and baseball.
