It is 12 noon (high noon) on Thursday December 13th and the names associated in
Operación Mitchell are beginning to leak out in the media. So far, there are little surprises. New York Yankees Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte top the list. Also included is 2005 MVP Albert Pujols.
I figured that the New York connection would be big as the focus of information in the Operación Mitchell report seems to be former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski and former Yankee trainer Brian McNamee. The former cooperating as part of a plea bargain.
Let’s see if this spurs all the parties in Major League Baseball to put a concerted effort into cleaning up the sport. If they can, then look for pressure to mount on the other professional sports leagues specifically the NFL and NBA. Otherwise, things will continue to spiral down.
