Former Senator George Mitchell issued his roids in baseball report.

Not surprising that so many people have been alleged.

Baseball’s Hall of Shame: MLB Report Finds Widespread Steroid Use, Warns About Influence Pros Have on Young Athletes
Quote:
Thursday is being described by some as “one of the darkest days in baseball history” following the publication of an official Major League Baseball report on the widespread use of steroids and performance enhancing drugs in the sport. About 90 retired and current players were named in the report including some of the game’s biggest superstars such as New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens and San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds. Former Senator George Mitchell headed the 20-month investigation.

Mitchell said the problem of steroids and sports extends far beyond professional baseball teams. He estimated hundreds of thousands of high school students currently use steroids. Sportswriter Dave Zirin joins us in Washington DC. He is author of the new book “Welcome to the Terrordome: The Pain, Politics and Promise of Sports.” He is a regular contributor to the Nation Magazine and writes a weekly column called “Edge of Sports.”
...

What is surprising is how little the evidence really is. The 400-page report speculates on a lot of hearse.

On a separate aspect, I love how GW is allowed to chime in:

Bush says steroid use has sullied baseball

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush said on Friday that the use of steroids in baseball has "sullied" the game, a day after a report revealed scores of players received the performance-enhancing drugs.

"I think it's best that all of us not jump to any conclusions on individual players named, but we can jump to this conclusion: that steroids have sullied the game," said Bush, a former part owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team.
...

Yes, it has in a certain sense.

But I think you need to focus on Blackwater employees who would sully our military objectives by taking roids and going into rages.
