Who are the other 103????

This A-Rod implication bears some serious issues.  I saw one guy post on ESPN the other day that every baseball player he beloved of his generation (Bonds, Arod, McGwire, Clemens, Sosa, etc) has been put to the task and he questions the legitimacy of the sport.  I have a 15 year old who begs me to buy him creatine so he can bulk up and swing for the fences.  I refuse to let him citing health issues and dad never did it so you don't have to either.  Where does that mindset come from?

My concern is that an entire generation of fans have no knowledge of the game when it was pure.  They have never seen Willie Mays runs so graceful in the OF, Mickey Mantle smash a ball 500 feet on two bad legs, Hammerin Hank ignite those explosive wrists, Bob Gibson working so fast and effective.  Their baseball memories of a wonderful game are a fraud home run race, a congressional hearing, the Mitchell Report, or the latest offering from the new ladder-day prophet Jose Canseco.

There are 103 names yet to be divulged.  One wonders when suspect participants such as Todd Helton and Nomar Garciaparra, whose numbers fell off the table post -testing, may be implicated.

One can argue the Union goofed up or someone leaked grand jury information (it has happened throughout history).  At the end of the day the truth always seems to worm itself our of any forced cocoon created for it. 

Baseball leadership must be forced out (Selig, Fehr, Orza) the whole lock ,stock, and barrel.  Baseball should put itself under the guise of the World Doping Association where independence, control and accuracy is at a premium.  The Feds and Mitchell Report realize that the baseball testing plan is a sham.  They have pushed for independent testing but baseball refuses to comply.  Why is that?  What more do they have to hide?  How much more damage lurks behind the curtains?

 Legitimize the game before the game destroys itself.  The game is a great game but the people who run it stink!
